Zwanze Day 2016 at Crooked Stave – October 1, 2016
(Denver, CO) – On Saturday, October 1st Crooked Stave will host Zwanze Day at their Brewery/Barrel Cellar location (1441 W. 46th Ave).
This year’s Zwanze is going to be a throwback to the Framboise they were producing 30 years ago. As the name implies, it was a lambic aged on raspberries. Back in the ’80s they used fresh fruit that lost its color quickly and often made filtration difficult, so cherries were also used to help maintain some rosiness and act as a secondary filter bed beneath the raspberries. Vanilla was also added to round it out. With modern flash-freezing techniques helping to maintain color and consistency, Cantillon began producing Rosé de Gambrinus with 100% raspberries. With Zwanze 2016, Jean wanted to give a nod to the raspberry/cherry blend, but with a twist: He decided to use blueberries instead of cherries.
Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. with tickets first-come, first-served. Zwanze will be tapped at 1:00 p.m. and last call will be at3:00 p.m.
Only the first 150 people will get a pour of this year’s Zwanze beer. We will be capping attendance at 300 people.
