Brasserie-Brouwerij Cantillon has announced it will be bottling a beer that is dedicated to teachers around the world.
The release is Nath 2017, a lambic-style beer that is brewed with a blend of one and two-year old lambic as well as rhubarb that debuted in 2008 as a draft-only option before being rereleased in both 2012 and 2015. The lambic is named after owner Jean-Pierre Van Roy’s wife Nathalie, who is a kindergarten teacher, and the label was designed by children from her classroom. In addition, the children of her classroom will produce a new drawing for the label every year.
“Our goal was to produce more, but this was impossible because of a lack of beer,” states a post on Cantillon’s Facebook page. “Starting this year, thanks to the Lambic coming from our second building, we can finally make this beer on a more regular basis.”
According to Cantillon, Nath 2017 will be a reoccurring release, with the children of Nathalie’s classroom producing a new drawing for the label every year, and is expected to be released in October.
A message sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
