A Night of Belgian Craft Beer Premiers with Christine Celis

On Thursday, January 23, 2014 I headed to Clinton Hall, a recent addition to the plethora of NYC craft beer bars for an event organized by Artisanal Imports and Authentic Beverage Management, which featured the premiers of a variety of Belgian beers that have recently become available in the US. While there I sat down for an interview with Christine Celis (daughter of the famous Pierre Celis) and Alex Forbes of Artisanal Imports / Authentic Beverage Management and Mark McCarter of SKI Beer (distributor) to chat about the Belgian craft beer revolution and how it fits into the US craft beer scene. Being that Christine had flown in from Austin, Texas to spread the word about the Belgian craft beer revolution, I took this opportunity to ask her some personal questions so that you and I could get a better picture of her contributions to the US craft beer community.

Furthermore, as a lover of Belgian beers that I’ve tried from the breweries that ABM is importing for have opened my eyes to a new level of potential for Belgian beers. I hope this video inspires you to seek out some of these unique and special beers to get a taste of the beers being brewed nowadays in Belgium. Cheers!
