Belgian Beer February: Abbey Dubbels

This Wednesday ♦ Downtown
5:30-7:00 PM


Originally European monks started brewing beer for the same reason everyone else brewed beer. It was tasty, gave you your grain fix, and was safer to drink in medieval times than water. When the monks started brewing beer specifically to be sold to the public, they made it stronger since their stuff was meant to sanitary but not inebriating. Legend has it that the monks marked the barrels of this second beer with two Xes, and this practice led to the designation of the beer as the dubbel (“double” in Flemish). Today we taste some dubbels. Get ready for medium-bodied, caramel, slight fruity, Belgian goodness!
