Chimay Celebration for Belgian Independence Day

Stop by Mick Brasserie and join us for Belgium Independence Day Celebration. We will have over 3 beers to sample.

The Chimay brewery was founded inside Scourmont Abbey, in the Belgian municipality of Chimay in 1862. The brewery produces three ales as well as a patersbier for the monks themselves which is occasionally sold as Chimay Gold; they are known as Trappist beers because they are made in a Trappist monastery. Founded: September 19, 1862 (156 years ago)

          • Chimay Dorée (Golden), 4.8% ABV ale, brewed from very similar ingredients as the Red, but more pale and spiced differently. It is a patersbier, intended only to be drunk at the Abbey. Since 2007 it was available at the nearby inn Auberge de Poteaupré, which is associated with the abbey.[9] The monks themselves drink this variety rather than the stronger three. Prior to 2015, it was unusual for bottles of the Chimay Dorée to be available outside the Abbey or local inn. However, from 2013, a limited quantity of this beer was sold on draught in the United Kingdom, at 19 Fuller’s pubs[10] and in Italy, where only 50 pubs sell this variety of beer, as well as in 330 ml bottles in some export markets.[11][12] In the Christmas season of 2016, Chimay made available a gift set with all four varieties and two chalices,[9] and since has been available in limited quantities in the USA.[13]
          The Cinq Cents was first brewed in 1966 by reverend Father Theodore and it was his final contribution to the Chimay line of beers. It was formerly known as “White Cap” and no other brew has been created since. Cinq Cents translates to 500, honoring the 500th anniversary of the of the Principality of Chimay whose support made the founding of the Scourmont Abbey possible in 1850.
          • Chimay Blue, 9% ABV darker ale. It is known as Grande Réserve. This copper-brown beer has a light creamy head and a slightly bitter taste. Considered to be the “classic” Chimay ale, it exhibits a considerable depth of fruity, peppery character.
