Vanberg & DeWulf 30th Anniversary Coast to Coast Toast
A big birthday is coming up for Don and Wendy, the founders of Vanberg & DeWulf. Yes, 30 years of bringing Belgium's finest beers to the U.S.
Don and Wendy have been an integral part of the Belgian beer community for a long time, and virtually created the market for Belgian beers in the U.S. What began as a hobby turned in to a pioneering effort to educate the American population, and certainly provided a key component in the overall success of craft and artisan beers in this country.
To celebrate, they are doing a "Coast to Coast Toast" on November 15th and would love for you to get involved. They've started a blog to post updates with their thoughts and ideas as the November 15th date approaches: http://belgianexperts.com/blog/. There are also some exciting updates and news regarding awards and accolades for their fine beers on the same page.
Already, over 100 of the country's best Belgian-friendly bars, restos, and stores have signed on! It wouldn't hurt to refresh your memory on their history and accomplishments (http://belgianexperts.com/about/) and peruse their web site, which is a wealth of information about Belgian beer, travel, food and culture. Encourage your friends to like their facebook page: facebook.com/vanberganddewulf and to sign up for their mailing list.
Hope to see you there!
