About Zwanze Day

Once a year, Brasserie Cantillon orchestrates a worldwide event featuring a beer made specifically for a few select accounts around the globe for a simultaneous toast of this fleeting beer. This magical fun day is known as Zwanze, a word that refers to a sarcastic style of humor, often noted in the specialty beer’s playful nature and ingredients.
