This weekend marks the fifth annual Boom Days, Boom Island’s celebration of Belgian heritage and their small brewpub on North Washington Avenue. The understated brewery will have a full lineup of beers flowing, including several made in classic European styles and a few with New World takes. The brand-new brews are Cuvée de Boom, a blend of Belgian blond ale and Chardonnay with no hops whatsoever, and Petite Rosé, which mixes Belgian strong ale with Mediterranean rosé. Available in limited supply, both options showcase the complex, accessible, one-of-a-kind offerings of the brewery. Boom will be celebrating all weekend long; the taproom schedule includes bicycle repair sessions, Saturday morning yoga, a Sunday homebrew competition, electric bike tours, food trucks, live music, and workshops.
