Cantillon Zwanze Day / Funk Night 2015


It is with great pleasure to announce that on Saturday, September 19th, 2015 starting at 3:00pm Bar Volo will be one of the 56 locations across the world chosen by Brasserie Cantillon (Brussels, Belgium) to host Zwanze Day 2015 (our third year in a row!). Zwanze Day is a world-wide celebratory release of a limited one-off lambic beer made by Brasserie Cantillon. It will be served in 17 countries simultaneously at 3:00pm on one day only. 

The Beer: Zwanze 2015 is Cantillon's interpretation of a spontaneously fermented stout or "Wild Brussels Stout". It was brewed in March of 2013 and was potentially a candidate to be served for the Zwanze Day celebration in 2014, but was held back until 2015. It was the 27th brew of the 2012-2013 season

On the same day, Bar Volo will also host its 5th Annual Funk Night featuring 32+ funky, sour and barrel aged beers on tap and in bottles along side funky tunes and eats. Part of this list will include 4 additional regularly produced beers from Brasserie Cantillon on tap. The event will run from 3:00pm-2:00am. No admission, reservations or advanced tickets will be required or sold for entry. 19+ event. Regular food menu will be available.
