SAISONS & SOURS & FRUIT
Highly carbonated, fruit, spicy and often bottle conditioned, the Saison is a pale ale that includes several varieties. Generally classified as a farmhouse ale, named after the ancient European farming tradition where they brewed beer from their own grain.
Hailing from the famous Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia, its light tartness gives way to a nice cotton-candy, creamy body and a sweet finish. A nice compliment to any of our desserts or appetizers!
Produced on a working farm in Belgium, this is a truly rustic country beer that keeps alive the tradition of honest, artisanal brewing. Bursting with earthy, spicy and delicate fruity flavors, this beer fits the classic Saison profile to a tee.
A Belgian Quad that offers notes of caramel and delectable dry chocolate. Additionally, this nitro can pour tastes a roasted coffee flavor, hence its “barista” name. Once Kasteel was a prominent force in the Belgian beer market, but it was pulled for rebranding and has since been reintroduced in nitro cans. Pair this with our goulash dinner!
Blonde Ales, also known as Golden Ales, is a medium ale that has moderate bitterness and maltiness. A “Tripel” is made with 3x the malt and has a higher ABV.

A traditional Belgian abbey beer with a deep brown color and a full, sweet and fruity aroma, it’s best paired with chocolate and beef and also goes great with buttery style cheeses. We recommend pairing with our house-made Charcuterie Board.
First brewed in 1966 by Rev. Father Theodore, it was his final contribution to the Chimay line of beers. With a typical golden color, a slightly hazy appearance topped with a fine foam that releases a bouquet of fruity esters and floral-hop aromas, this is an ideal patio-drinking beer.
Chimay 150 is a celebratory beer to commemorate 150 years in Chimay’s brewery.

Chimay 150 is a refreshing beer, strong but refined, with a balanced flavor and floral scent, accompanied by aromas of dried fruits and spices.
First launched in 1948 as a Christmas ale under the name “Blue Cap”, its reputation as a strong ale of the highest quality led to its year-round production. It’s remarkably dry with a hint of sweetness that’s derived from the highest quality of malts. Flavors of dates, fig and pear are complemented by aromas of bread with a faint floral finish.
The oldest of the Chimay beers, it’s a timeless classic and sweet harmony in a glass. Its mildly floral notes mix perfectly with a spicy pepper and clove. The sweet, dark fruity finish features a touch of chocolate and caramel.
Brewed 25 years after the premier of the Gulden Draak, one of the most successful beers in the U.S., the Guldren Draak 9000 is an exceptional beer with a complex taste sensation.

Brewed by women and for women! Proceeds of sales go toward breast cancer research. Sparkling carbonate content produces a soft, full taste perception. The taste is very full-bodied and is balanced with fruity tones of apple and Chardonnay grapes.

A sip draws out bright, woody, port-wine-like character, notes of bread crust, dried fruits, fermenting tobacco, a little oak vanilla and a hint of leather before restrained, Flanders-like acidity cleans the palate.
Flavor of Belgian yeast, bread malt, musty grapes, light fruits, mild raisin, anise, light spices with a floral noise. We are Cleveland’s favorite German Restaurant, but every perfect imported beer list needs at least one true Belgian Trappist on its list!
Boskeun is the nickname of Jo, one of the two brothers who preferred to brew blond beer at home. It is a special Easter beer, one of the first real Belgian Easter beers. (Slaghmuylder’s paasbier being first). It has been brewed with pale malt, Golding hops, cane sugar and re-fermented in the bottle. It’s a seasonal beer, so we suggest not to keep it eternally. The name Boskeun means rabbit of the woods and the label shows it, sampling the last brew.
