National Orval Day

Now this is more like it. Annual beer days should be for Hall of Fame beers. Not a style or a beer that is just released but beers that we should drink more of. I am thinking of Saison Dupont as one example but another is Orval and finally, in 2016, there will be the Inaugural National Orval Day and it is tomorrow!

Orval is an iconic Belgian Ale under the Trappist nom de guerre. It falls under the pale category but with brettanomyces and dry hopping. You can usually find it in better beer stores for $6-$7 bucks for a smaller bottle and if you just drink it once a year, start making it a habit and do it tomorrow.
