MAY 21: Orval Day at Guardian Brewing Company

Join us to celebrate the best Brettanomyces beer in the world!

The Orval legend began almost 1,000 years ago, when a princess accidentally dropped her ring into a spring and a trout returned it. It continues now, with a day to reflect on and enjoy this amazing Trappist ale.

On Orval Day, devotees of Orval Trappist Ale – and some folks who maybe have not tried it yet – convene to celebrate one of the world’s unique and highly-respected beers. The next Orval Day is set for Saturday May 21, 2022.

Orval Trappist Ale was the first Brett beer to land on US shores, and has become the favorite beer for many star American brewers. ( “Brett” – brettanomyces – is a yeast variety that adds appetizing, sharp acidity and dryness.) Orval is brewed to exquisite perfection within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery in Belgium. It’s delicious when it leaves the brewery, but also evolves in the bottle for five years or more.

Each year we make a donation to charity based on US sales of Orval on Orval Day. For 2021, our charitable contribution went to regional US hunger-relief organizations Northwest Harvest and Houston Food Bank. If you drank, bought or sold an Orval Trappist Ale on Orval Day – thanks!
