Kings Day at Holy Grale
Apr 27 @ 1:00 pm – Apr 28 @ 12:00 am

Each year on April 30 since 1890 the entirety of The Netherlands has broken out in a flood of orange—the national color—to celebrate Queen Beatrix. Known as Koninginnedag in Holland, it’s a day of celebration, fleamarkets and, of course, Dutch beer! But as of 2013, the Queen has abdicated to her son Prince (now King) Willem-Alexander. So in 2014 we will celebrate King’s Day for the first time in more than 130 years! On this one day a year, Dutch citizens are allowed to have open sales in the streets—flea markets—without permits or taxes. The result is that most people are either buying or selling, everyone is outside and everyone is in the mood to party. We’d like to keep the party going on this side of the Atlantic. Join us in celebration of not only Queen Beatrix, but also the fantastic beers of Holland:

La Trappe Dubbel
La Trappe Bock
La Trappe Witte
Urthel Hop-It
Urthel Saisonnaire
Urthel Quad
Emelisse Russian Imperial Stout
De Molen Cease & Desist Imperial Stout (Bourbon Barrel)
De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis (Bourbon Barrel)
De Molen Lief & Leed
