On July 1st, from 7-10pm, Bangers & Lace is hosting a casual meet & greet (you know we can’t resist an ampersand!) with Christine Celis, co-founder of Authentic Beverage Management Imports. We’ll even have a few beers from Christine’s portfolio, newly imported stateside and ready for your discerning palate:
- Prearis Quad (Prearis was voted Best New Brewer in Belgium!)
- Ter Dolen Kriek (The world’s only certified Abbey Kriek beer!)
You may recognize Christine’s surname if you’re into legendary beer lineages: Her father Pierre Celis was the man who put the small Belgian town of Hoegaarden on the world beer map. In the 1960s, Pierre single-handedly revived the town’s cloudy wheat beers made with spices and fruit, saving the “white” brew from extinction in the face of mass-marketed lagers.
That passion for beer was passed down to his daughter, who began ABM Imports with a simple goal: to match the love, energy, and passion each of their brewers pours into their creations. Christine seeks high quality and interesting brews with their own signature style and story, and next Monday, you’ll be able to hear (and taste!) for yourself why each of the specially selected beers she’s bringing to Bangers & Lace fits those strict qualifications.
