Barrel of Monks Celebrates the Birth of the Muscles from Brussels
On October 18th, be prepared for a whirlwind of roundhouse kicks and cheesy one-liners as we are hosting an action-packed party to celebrate the birthday of a Belgian legend. In honor of Jean Claude Van Damme, the Muscles from Brussels, the brewery will be filled with specialty beers, kickass food pairings from Tucker Duke’s Boca Raton, movie spotlights, photo ops, hero moments and more. Come help us toast the most glorious Belgian (maybe human) in the history of mankind, as we celebrate Van Damme Day!
What better way to celebrate JCVD’s b-day, than by admiring his impact on cinema and culture, his Belgian heritage and his awesome ability to do the splits with a bold celebration of beer, food and fun?
Jean Claude Van Damme is an international action film icon. The Belgium-born star has showcased his patented splits and acrobatic kicks in such movies as Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Street Fighter, Lionheart, The Expendables and many more. Born on October 18, 1960, in Berchem-Sainte-Agathe, Belgium, he became a champion martial artist and bodybuilder, going on to use his beautifully gifted physical abilities to become the star of American action flicks, kicking up the kick-o-meter and retaining is stardom through the 80s, 90s and 2000.
