Count of Cristo

Count of Cristo, Brouwerij Bosteels’ first bier release since 2002, is globally exclusive on tap to our Grand Cafés. Like its literary namesake—Alexandre Dumas’ Count of Monte Cristo—this specialty bier is a treasure. Each sip crafts a memorable journey with flavors that are intricate and exciting, layered yet approachable and, unlike the elusive Count, hold nothing back.

This behemoth of a Belgian Strong Dark ale pops with notes of caramel, vanilla, and milk chocolate balanced by a touch of boozy heat and a mellow base reminiscent of a rich Port wine. Count of Cristo’s complex character pairs well with steak, coffee cake, and chocolate.

At 12.5% ABV, Count of Cristo is meant to be thoughtfully sipped and thoroughly savored. Bier lovers—you won’t want to miss your chance to try this small but mighty bier. Swing by your neighborhood Café Hollander or Café Benelux in the Third Ward to try this exclusive bier!

Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month is a yearly reminder that as human beings, our capacity to hope, to fight, to work together, to persevere, to PERSIST, to resist, and to prevail, even and especially in times of uncertainty and strife, is our species’ greatest asset.

The month-long celebration is a chance to acknowledge women’s contributions to history, culture and society and we’re doing that in our favorite way: with bier!

Every year (*not including 2021), 15 women from all over the world gather at Huyghe Brewery in Belgium. As a way to celebrate women in the industry in preparation for International Women’s Day, the group helps brew Deliria. Last year (Pre-pandemic), our very own Chief of Operations/Girl Boss/Beverage Director Extraordinaire, Ileana Rivera, was selected to take part in the special tradition. We are celebrating this month in our Grand Cafés by tapping into the exact Deliria kegs that Ileana helped brew.

Also this month, we are toasting to women through a special partnership with Pink Boots Society. This nationwide nonprofit organization assists, inspires, and encourages women professionals in the fermented/alcoholic beverage industry through education. For every Deliria sold at our Grand Cafés in March, we are donating $1 of proceeds to help fund scholarships for the Pink Boots Society. 

Stop by your neighborhood Café Hollander or Café Benelux in the Third Ward any day in March to try Deliria! This Blonde Belgian Strong Ale with spicy, mild hop notes bursts fruity tones of apple and chardonnay grape.

“Who run the world? Girls!”
