Orval Sale & Orval Day
From now through the end of March we will be selling bottles of Orval at a discount and on March 25th we will begin raffling off some great Orval themed baskets and other fun things. Every purchase earns you a chance to win one of these wonderful items. You do not have to be present to win. As always proceeds from the sale of Orval go to support the abbey and their charities.
About Orval Day:
(Orval Day 2017 will be held Saturday, March 25, 2017)
“On March 26th, 2016, devotees of Orval Trappist Ale – and even some folks who hadn’t tried it yet – convened upon their favorite bar to celebrate one of the world’s most unique beers. Orval was the first Brett beer to land on US shores, and has become the favorite beer for many star American brewers. ( “Brett” – brettanomyces – is a yeast variety that adds appetizing, sharp acidity and dryness.) Orval sells one beer, brewed to exquisite perfection within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery in Belgium. It’s delicious when it leaves the brewery, but also evolves in the bottle for five years or more.”
“We had over 150 accounts participate in the March 2016 Orval Day, and about 12,000 bottles were sold! Thanks to all who participated. A portion of the proceeds from Orval Day is being donated to MAP International.”
“2016 was the first year that Orval Day was celebrated nationally – Orval Day 2017 will be Saturday March 25, 2017. Our events page always lists places to find a great beer.”
