All-You-Can-Eat Mussels Belgian beer Happy Hour from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Black Squirrel

2427 18th Street, NW

From an email:

“Flex your beer mussels at The Black Squirrel on Tuesday, April 28th, when Belgian breweries L. Huyghe, Het Anker, and Oud Beersel meet Mussel Night for All-You-Can-Eat Mussels Belgian beer Happy Hour from 5 to 8 p.m.

Wetten Importers’ Bernard Van Order will be on hand to talk beer and distribute free Delirium and Lucifer glassware.

We will be pouring four Belgian ales for the event:
· Delirium Nocturnum (L. Huyghe, Belgian Dark Ale, 9%)
· La Guillotine (L. Huyghe, Belgian Strong Blonde Ale, 8.5%)
· Lucifer (Het Anker, Belgian Strong Pale Ale, 8%)
· Oude Gueuze (Oud Beersel, Gueuze, 6%, 375mL bottle)

Three types of mussel sauces (white wine and tomato, cream curry, and Andouille sausage) will be available to pair with your Belgian ale. It is a forgone conclusion that you will consume both beer and mussels in extremely large quantities.

To be fair to these breweries, they do have pretty great histories. Het Anker has been brewing in the city of Mechelen since 1369. That is the year Jan in den Anker paid his penny membership to the St. Rombouts Chapter of the Brewer’s Guild. The Brewery Oud Beersel started in 1882 on the outskirts of Brussels. It is one of the last remaining authentic lambic breweries of Belgium. And at the L. Huyghe Brewery the real action started in 1985 when the brewery was revamped, and by 1988 they were brewing the famous pink elephants of Delirium Tremens.

If you have a chance, stop by and have a swig of Belgian history along with a steamy pot of all-you-can-eat mussels.”
