    Here's the grand daddy treat for the most philanthropic effort: We'll take you to BELGIUM! You'll get to relive the beginning days of Pipeworks! We'll take you to where it all started, a tour of Belgium and probably a stop in the Netherlands. Not only will you visit and experience the most holy of brewing sites (Westvleteren, Cantillon, De Struise, The Kulminator, etc...), but if we're lucky you'll get to be a part of a collaboration brew with one, or more, of our European brewing friends! Oh yea, we'll throw all that other stuff in there too, probably by the case (glasses, shirts, hats, key chains, dinner, tap handle, and maybe if there is room a sticker or two).
