Celebrate Belgian Independence Day With Beer and More Beer

July 21 is Belgian Independence Day, a holiday commemorating Belgium’s separation from the Netherlands in 1831. In honor of that great beer-producing country, celebrations will take place throughout the great beer-drinking city of Philadelphia. Legendary brewery Duvel Moortgat has arranged Belgian tap takeovers, flights, samplings and giveaways taking place from Wednesday-Sunday, July 17-21.

Along with flagship blonde ale Duvel, events will feature Belgian IPA Duvel Triple Hop, pale ale De Koninck, Belgian tripel Maredsous and Ommegang Belgian Independence Day Double White, which was brewed specially for this occasion. At each location, the first dozen or so beer drinkers to show up will get free prizes like t-shirts, pens and beer glasses. Check out the calendar below and get ready to raise a glass to independence (again).
