Zwanze in the Brussels dialect refers to a semi-sarcastic style of humor. That sense of humor is often reflected in the experimental nature of Cantillon's beers, which are not always the most traditional of lambics. Zwanze often finds its way into our beers at Jolly Pumpkin as well, which has led to this perfect of sour storms. A cloud of sourcumulonimbus has begun to gather in Dexter, Michigan. But instead of umbrellas and rain boots all you will need is a glass. Okay, you might need an umbrella and rain boots, this event will go on rain or shine.
Beyond the Zwanze beer we will have the following offerings from Cantillon: Gueze, Kriek, Mamouche, Iris Grand Cru.

All of that has us feeling pretty good, and when you are feeling good you want to help spread that feeling. That's why we partnered with the Detroit non-profit Feelgood Tap. If you have spent any time in craft beer breweries and bars over the last year you will most likely recognize the name. Feelgood Tap raises funds to support local and regional nonprofits throughout Michigan with a focus on community, culture, and wellness. Their recognizable tap handles grace dozens of bars throughout the state and every beer sold from that tap raises $1 for other Michigan based non-profits. So buy a ticket and feel good about yourself as all profits from this event will be donated to Feelgood Tap.
