Sedona Taphouse Belgian Independence Day Glasses Still Available

Sedona Belgian Independence Glasses4

Somehow I missed that Sedona Taphouse had joined in on the Belgian Independence Day fun yesterday.  They were giving away the cool glasses pictured above but luckily they still have a few glasses left and will repeat the giveway tonight Thursday July 18th. 

Here are the earlier details from Sedona; they are already out of the tulip glasses so I crossed it out.

Tomorrow, Sedona Taphouse, Belgian Independence Day.

This one’s special.

Taplist (to be updated/added to):

Ommegang Belgian Independence Day Double White Ale
Ommegang/d’Achouffe Gnomegang
Brasserie d’Achouffe Biere de Soleil
Brasserie d’Achouffe Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel
Liefmans Goudenband
Maredsous 10 (Tripel)

Now for the special part (for those still reading)…

We have a very, very, limited supply of stemmed Liefmans glasses, Maredsous chalices, Brasserie D’Achouffe Tulips, and Duvel Tulips to take home.

These will begin to be distributed at 5PM, SHARP, and special pours will be served in the appropriate glassware when you purchase your beer/glass. One per person, and when we run out, we’re out.

They’re really awesome btw…

Hope to see some out!
