If you're new to the Battle of Belgium, we promise that it will be an unforgettable beer experience. The Battle of Belgium is a 4 day, 32 beer single elimination blind taste-off where customer votes determine the King of Belgian Beer! Last year's champion was St. Bernardus Abt 12 and as the overall #1 seed in 2012, we think there's at least a decent chance for it to repeat, but just like last year, we'll let the tastings decide...
The Battle of Belgium is March 7-10 from 6-8pm at Kahn's North Willow, 2342 W. 86th Street.

The Tastings: Initial matchups are based on seeding. All matchups will be conducted blind. At the tastings, customers vote for their favorite beer in each matchup, and the beer with the most votes will advance to the next round. In the event of a tie, a Kahn’s staff member will break the tie by tasting and voting for their preferred beer in the tied matchup. At the end of each day, brown bags will be removed and the beers will be revealed. In the event of a tie in the final round, the winner will be the beer with the greatest number of votes throughout the tournament.
