Fresh off being knighted by the Belgian Brewers guild and the Mashstaff of the Knights in Belgium, Winking Lizard Tavern co-owner John Lane will chat with beer drinkers at a special celebration of Belgian beers at 6 p.m. Friday at the Lizardville in Bedford Heights.
The event has been dubbed a "Night with a Knight." It will feature Houblon Chouffe, Liefmans Cuvee Brut, Tripel Karmeliet, Blanche de Bruxelles, Ommegang Gnomegang and DeKoninck Amber on draft.
Each year, the Belgian Brewers group honors people who have represented Belgian beer and their breweries in a positive way. The induction coincided with Belgian Beer Weekend in Brussels. Lane has called the honor "a highlight of my career."
