KrieksThis July I will be hosting a delicious and educational beer and food tasting night focused entirely on the kriek variety of lambic beers.  This will be a small event for 8 people including some craft beer friends and members of my local homebrew club.

I will be serving around 20 different krieks in a series of 4 guided flights with each flight focusing on a different character of the style. In all, the night will feature krieks from nearly every traditional Belgian lambic brewery as well as a few examples blended domestically as well. In between the flights I will have food tastings designed to pair with the style as well as a main course to be offered at the end of the night. Additionally there will be at least 2 homebrewed krieks to taste.

Some of the most excellent representations of the style come from brewers and blenders such as Cantillon, Drie Fonteinen, and Hanssen’s Artisanaal, and I will be featuring multiple varieties of kriek from each of these iconic producers as well as samplings from:
• Lindeman’s
• Girardin
• Mort Subite
• DeRanke
• Oude Beersel
• Mikkellar
• Cisco Brewers
• Vanberg & Dewulf

I am extremely excited for this event because while I have tried the majority of these beers before, I have never been able to sample so many of them together to draw strong comparisons. I believe this will be very educational and I look forward to sharing tasting notes, reviews, and what I learn from the experience here.

Stay tuned!
