Oscar Meet Charles - Abbot on the Hill Events

I received some news from our friends at the Abbot on the Hill today regarding two events they will be hosting on the 21st and 22nd.

On Saturday the 21st, join the Abbot with friends and family to help celebrate Charles V's birthday. The ruler of the Roman Emperor seemed to have a preference for a mug of beer rather than the more sophisticated wine, which has led to numerous breweries naming beer in his honour. Take part in a 3 course Beligan menu price fixe with three different Het Anker beers, who have commemorated his life with a variety of beers - The Gouden Carolus Series: Gouden Carolus, Gouden Carolus Tripel, Gouden Carolus Ambrio.

Tickets for the event will run you $40.00, a steal for the quality of food the Abbot produces.

There were also be an exclusive beer served just for the occasion, as Het Anker will have their Cuvee Van De Keizer Blauw available, a beer brewed only once a year for Charles the V's birthday.

*Reservations are recommended - Supplies are limited.

Then on Sunday the 22nd, for those that follow the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, the Abbot will be throwing an Oscar bash sponsored by Tuborg Gold. There will be prizes for the best dressed ladies, free oysters and poached shrimp, and a beer basket prize for the best dressed man. There will also be an Oscar pool to take part in while you watch the event from one of the tv's behind the bar.

There is no cost associated with attending the event; however, reservations are a good idea to ensure enough platters are prepared.
