OMMEGANG CELEBRATES BELGIAN INDEPENDENCE

Ommegang poster
Wednesday, July 23rd, ANDERSONVILLE. Join Brewery 
Ommegang, Jerry’s and Pintley in celebration of Belgian Independence. 
They may have lost to Argentina in the World Cup this year, but in the 1830’s they didn’t back down. Sure, we may be 2 days late, but they’ll still be independent, right? We’ll be pouring delicious beers from Ommegang and there will be a special appearance from a LIVE ANGEL courtesy of Angel’s Envy Bourbon (just like in Belgium!?!). There may also be Belgian-influenced food specials, but we need to ask Leopold’s permission first. Let us know if you have his number…or email address…we’ve been blocked from his Instagram account for reasons we prefer not to discuss at this time.

Featured draft beers will start pouring at 6pm:
-Belgian Independence Day IPA
-Fleur de Houblon Belgian Ale
-Gnomegang Blonde Ale
-Hop House (Dry-hopped Pale)
-Game of Thrones Fire & Blood
