Zwanze Day at the Wild Workshop

Zwanze Day 2024

$80.00 ea

Get ready to raise your glasses! Zwanze Day 2024 is just around the corner, and we're delighted to be hosting the release of this special beer, exclusively in New Zealand. 

Founded in 1900, Brasserie Cantillon has long since been a forerunner of high quality lambics. In 2008, the world of beer welcomed the first iteration of Zwanze; a special lambic bottling made with an addition of rhubarb, which marked a distinct departure from the traditional lambic style. Since then, Cantillon brewer Jean Van Roy has used the release of Zwanze, and the aptly-named Zwanze Day, to bring lambic enthusiasts together all around the world.

Zwanze is the embodiment of Brussel's cheek, and a celebration of experimentation - and you know we absolutely love to try something new! So mark your calendars for Saturday April 20th, as we invite you to come join us for a celebration of beer like no other.

We'll be diving into the world of Cantillon's spontaneously fermented beers, beginning with an exclusive private tasting featuring all of the special brews on offer, including the highly anticipated, titular Zwanze beer - in fact, owing to our timezone, we'll be the first amongst all of the other fantastic host bars and breweries to be pouring it, which means you'll be amongst the first in the world to ever try it!

Strictly limited tickets** available; grab yours now and secure your spot to the hosted tasting, where you'll experience 7x100ml pours of delightful Cantillon specialties, alongside some of our very own Spontaneous creations, and some un-named surprises!

We'll have snacks and nibbles provided on site, plus you'll get first access to any take-home Cantillon bottlings on the day.

Still not convinced? Check out the lineup below! We'll be pouring through bottlings of Iris and Bruoscella, plus freshly landed kegs of:

  • Zwanze, Kriek, Framboise, Fou'foune, Gueze
  • + More to come on the day.

Private Session: 11.30- 1.30pm (ticket holders only)

Trust us, you won't want to miss out! We welcome you to RSVP over on our Facebook page - and remember, tell a friend!
