Hey everyone, it's been in the works for a while, but it seems the date is official, the Ommegang Louisiana release party will be Sep. 7th at The Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Here's the word from the owner, Polly:
Wed Sept 7 th Ommegang La release party!
Beers will be tapped upstairs and down.
Yea...the much anticipated Ommegang is in stock and will be released Wed night! We will have the following beers on draft: Abbey, Hennepin, Rare Vos, BP Ale, Witte and 2 kegs that only the Pub is getting Aphrodite & Duvel Single Belgian. three Philosophers will be poured from bottles by the 10 and four ounce sizes that night also! We will have limited free glassware for those that show up early! The Balcony for this event will be non smoking until 11pm.
What's really exciting about this is that it should mean we can find some Ommegang in bottles in stores and places like The Cove around BR before too long. And hopefully on tap at the usual places like The Bulldog and The Chimes. Ommegang is a craft brewery out of Cooperstown, NY that specializes in Belgian-style ales. I've reviewed a few of theirs before and tried several others including the Chocolate Indulgence Ale, the Rare VOS, and the flagship Abbey Ale and I can say that I'm happy to have their beers here. I'm a fan of good American brewers who can do a fine Belgian ale and these guys can. So check them out once they're on the shelves, and enjoy!
