Rodenbach Chalice Night at Toronado

  • Toronado Seattle 1205 Northeast 65th Street Seattle, WA, 98115 United States (map)
3 amazing beers and you keep the chalice! 

Delicious Flanders Red Beers all night in The House That Bonney Built!! We've waited long enough and April 5th is the day. First of the Fruitage, Last of The Alexander, and Old Trustworthy Grand Cru will be the lineup! They are only 20L kegs so get there early:)

Award Winning* RODENBACH Grand Cru (Alc. 6% Vol.) is a blend of “young” beer (33%) and an older beer (67%) that has matured in oak vats. It is the high percentage of the older ripened-in-oak beer that gives it the complex and intense bouquet with a very long aftertaste like a Grand Cru wine. This is a complex beer with lots of wood and fruity esters, wine-like and with a balsamic vinegar aroma. A sharp taste, fruity, refreshing and with a balanced Madeira-like sweetness.

RODENBACH Fruitage gets its name from aged-old brewing techniques, combined with fruit infusions. It's an instant classic – comprised of 25% authentically aged RODENBACH (2-year matured beer from oak standing Foeders) blended with 75% young RODENBACH ale, with added fruit of cherries and elderberries. With an ABV of 4.2%, RODENBACH Fruitage is light and refreshing, perfect for easy drinking and to be enjoyed year-round.
RODENBACH Alexander (ABV 5.6%)is brewed at the RODENBACH brewery in Roeselare, in the province of West Flanders. This mixed fermentation beer consists of two thirds beer that was matured in oak casks for 24 months and one third young beer, and has been subjected to maceration with sour cherries.
This extraordinary beer with its unique, balanced palate, complex finish and subtle fruit and wood notes is undoubtedly one of the best sour ales RODENBACH has ever created. It was brewed for the first time in 1986 on the occasion of Alexander Rodenbach’s 200th birthday and is now back by popular demand to the delight of beer lovers here and abroad. Its aftertaste is reminiscent of a Burgundy wine and its freshness makes this beer the perfect aperitif or accompaniment to cheeses or dessert.
