Orval Day

Join us on Saturday, March 23rd for Orval Day!

The Orval legend began almost 1,000 years ago when a princess accidentally dropped her ring into a spring and a trout returned it. It continues now, with a day to reflect on and enjoy this amazing Trappist ale.

On Orval Day, devotees of Orval Trappist Ale – and some folks who maybe have not tried it yet – convene to celebrate one of the world’s most unique and highly respected beers.

Orval Trappist Ale was the first Brett beer to land on US shores and has become the favorite beer for many star American brewers. ( “Brett” – Brettanomyces – is a yeast variety that adds appetizing, sharp acidity and dryness.) Orval is brewed to exquisite perfection within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery in Belgium. It’s delicious when it leaves the brewery, but also evolves in the bottle for five years or more.

We’ll also have a bunch of Orval swag to hand out to our customers including 12 Orval chalices. Once they’re gone they’re gone so make sure you get here early!
