Beer importers Vanberg & DeWulf are almost single-handedly responsible for introducing Americans to Belgian beer. Husband and wife Don Feinberg & Wendy Littlefield began bringing the flavorful ales over to the U.S. in 1982, when the beer scene here was totally dominated by pale, macrobrewed lagers.
Last year the company celebrated its birthday with the first ever Coast to Coast Toast, and the nationwide event is back for another round. Coast to Coast Toast 2 takes place Thursday, November 15, at bars all over the country. Where can you join in the Belgophile drinking fun? Check out the official list, by state, of participating bars and bottle shops here (PDF). Let us know how you plan to celebrate in the comments.
