Cantillon Zwanze Day 2016

Cantillon 2016 Zwanze Day Framboise

World famous lambic brewers Brasserie Cantillon have announced a nearly complete list of locations for Zwanze Day 2016 and this year’s release of Cantillon Framboise. Zwanze Day is an annual event held in select cities and countries across the world on the exact same day, wherein Cantillon releases a special beer to be tapped simultaneously. This year’s event will be on October 1st, 2016, with select bottles also for sale. Many locations get other Cantillon kegs on draft or tap other special beers, and all are extremely rare.

For 2016 there seem to be some changes, including more countries like Australia getting a release. This year it does not appear that Portland has a Zwanze Day location; De Garde Brewing in Tillamook will be the only location in Oregon, though there are supposedly two more locations in the USA to be announced. In Seattle, the new Slow Boat Tavern is hosting and while Canada has releases in Montreal, Toronto and Victoria, Vancouver, BC, is left out.
