Belga Cafe is hosting a Unibroue vs. Belgian Brews Dinner this Thursday, April 14, at 6:30pm.
The five-course dinner will showcase Unibroue, the first North American brewer to use a brewing method inspired by the two-centuries-old tradition developed by Trappist monks in Europe—particularly in Belgium. Bernard Johnson, the East Coast Unibroue Manager, will be in attendance and speaking about the beers. Unibroue rarely has events in DC, so this should be a great and special occasion. The menu for the dinner follows below; each features a Unibroue beer and a Belgian (or Belgian-style) beer. Tickets can be purchased by calling Belga Cafe at 202-544-0100.
