Stillwater Artisanal Ales on tap in Brussels
Brian "Stillwater" Strumke has been brewing beer in Belgium
for over a year now, at various breweries.
Now, two of his beers are available on tap in Brussels, at
Delirium Cafe's Hoppy Loft.
Ironically, both are brewed stateside, here in the Baltimore area.
Stateside Saison, Brian's first commercial beer, as well as Cellar Door
(my favorite Stillwater beer....so far, anyway!) made their first
appearances in Brussels last week.
Assumedly, other bars on the cutting edge will have these brews
available as well. Moeder Lambic Fontainas comes to mind.
Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, of Mikkeler beer fame, is importing the
beers into Belgium.
And there is other good news from Delirium: as of July 1st,
all their bars are non-smoking. In fact, I believe all
Belgian bars are non-smoking. What a pleasure it will be to
visit next time!
