Bazi Celebrates Kwaktoberfest


Bazi Bierbrasserie in Portland celebrates Kwaktoberfest with Artisinal Imports on Sunday, October 30th from 2-7 PM. This annual event for Belgian beer lovers features a tasting tray with Bosteels Brewery three world-wide known beers: Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS.

The tasting event will consist of 5 oz pour of each beer for $15 including a souvenir Kwak glass. This is your opportunity to try the infamous DeuS (Is it champagne or is it beer?), normally available only in 750 ml Dom Perignon bottles.

One lucky winner will also be chosen to take home a Quattro (4-Kwak tasting tray). Announcement will take place shortly after 7 PM at the conclusion of the event.

About the beers:

Deus undergoes a lengthy, costly maturation in the Champagne caves of France. The elegant and labor-intensive “methode Champenoise” produces the best sparkling beverages in the world. DeuS has characteristics of both sparkling wine (fine, velvety carbonation) and specialty beer (rich maltiness) but also exhibits a fragrant, herbal and spicy character quite unique and special. Flavors of anise, mint, malt, lavender, and a barely perceptible hoppiness make DeuS a very sophisticated treat. Only available in 750 ml bottles.

Kwak is rich amber in color with a slightly sweet, generously malty character. Hops are subdued, but present a well-considered balance with the juicy ripeness of grain and a fruity, meringue softness.

Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. World’s Best Ale 2008.

No tricks here, just treats and lots of them!!!! So give the Kwak a try, after all, the glass is half the fun!
