Cantillon releases a special brew once a year at select establishments around the world. These spots are carefully picked to pour the coveted beer on Zwanze Day. This year's beer is the "Cuvee De Florian", it is Iris with Cherries and was named after Cantillon's Jean Van Roy's son Florian in honor of his 18th birthday this year.
Zwanze day will be on September 20th and starts at 3:00. Tickets can be purchased to garuntee that you have a spot to sample the keg. $15 will get you a pour of Cuvee De Florian and a commemorative glass you get to keep. If you're part of The Birch's Green Glass Guild (GGG), you will gain access to the bar at noon--hours before the general ticket holders.
To accommodate Zwanze fans, the sidewalk will be closed during the event and delicious pizza from The Bakehouse at Chelsea will be available for purchase for hungry revelers.
