Since 1873, the Friart family has been brewing various beers, among others, the St-Feuillien. But the history of this beer goes back even further.
In the 7th century, an Irish monk by the name of Feuillien came to the Continent to preach the Gospel. Unfortunately, in 655, while travelling through the charcoal forest, across the territory of what is now the town of Le Roeulx, Feuillien was martyred and beheaded. On the site of his martyrdom, Feuillien’s disciples erected a chapel which, in 1125 became the Abbey of Prémontrés, but later became known as the Abbaye St-Feuillien du Roeulx.
The Abbey prospered until the upheavals of the French Revolution. During these troubled times, it was condemned by the revolutionaries. For centuries, monks have brewed beer and this tradition has been preserved until this very day.
Come down and join 4th generation owner Dominique Friart for a night of her family's classic Belgian ales. We will have Wit, Saison, Tripel, & Noel on draught along with a full line-up of Bottles. At 8pm Dominique will be opening a 9 liter bottle of St. Feuillien to share with all.

Van Twee -
Brewmasters Collaboration with John Mallet
The 2009 collaboration brew was created with John Mallet of Bell's Brewing in Michigan. Van Twee is a "mash-up" of the porter and dubbel styles blended with sour cherry juice from Michigan and brettanomyces in the secondary fermentation. It is a rich, dark beer capped by tan foam. Malty layers of chocolate and coffee trade on the palate with sour brett and dark fruit notes. Reminiscent of the famous fruit-filled chocolates of Belgium. July 2009 selection - Michael Jackson's Rare Beer Club
Brouwer's Cafe and SBS Imports founder Alan Shapiro, will be tapping Seattle's first keg this evening. We will also be featuring a full line up of De Preof bottles.
