Spuyten Duyvil

If you're in the neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn and you have a hankering for some fine/tasty/hoppy/malty/and slightly obscure libations I can HIGHLY recommend taking a trip to Spuyten Duyvil. The bar is located at the intersection of Metropolitan Avenue & Havemeyer St. just off the BQE. The bar has six taps and 1 cask tap, to go along with the 100+ bottle selection, which includes such personal favorites as Dogfish Head Burton Baton & Three Floyds Dreadnaught IPA...

On Monday, March 13th at 6pm Spuyten Duyvil presents a very rare opportunity to serve SIX different kegs and other specials from Brouwerij De Regenboog.

Tap beers will be-
1) BBBourgondier: An 11% dark ale brewed with candi sugar, Valerian and Lemon Balm
2) t’ Smisje Blond: A 6% golden ale brewed with challenger hops and lime-blossoms
3) t’ Simisje Dubble: A 9% ale brewed with honey, fresh dates, and dark and white candi sugar
4) Wostyntje Mustard Ale: A 5% ale brewed with dark & light candi sugar and crushed Torhout Mustaard seeds
5) Halloween Speciale: A 10.5% ale brewed with pumpkin and aged on pumpkin seeds
6) t’ Smisje Kerst: An 11% dark Christmas ale

Bottles will include; Wostyntje Mustard, t’ Smisje Blonde, t’ Smisje Dubble, Vuuve 5 Wit (a 5% wheat beer brewed with coriander and organic orange peel), t’ Smisje Calva Reserva (A 12% strong ale brewed with dark and white candi sugar, coriander, grains of paradise and matured in calvados casks)
, Cuvee t’ Smisje 2005 (A 10% ale brewed with dark and light candi sugar, challenger, magnum and cascade hops and dry-hopped with Cascade.

Regenboog (Flemish for rainbow) brewer, Johan Brandt , started this tiny artisanal brewery in Brugge, Belgium at the end of 1995. In the beginning he brewed only once a week with a capacity of 120 litres (1 barrel). By 1999 he started brewing twice a week with an increased capacity of 160 litres (1.5 barrels), meaning non stop brewing, bottling, washing bottles throughout the year.
