In honor of St. Arnoldus Day, which celebrates the guardian of Belgian hop-pickers and beer brewers, Santa Monica's Library Alehouse will be hosting a Belgian mini-fest tonight and tomorrow. Tonight's festivities will be presented by the Ommegang and the Duvel Moortgat portfolio, and tomorrow will feature beers from the Pacific Libations portfolio. There will be Belgian eats, as well as giveaways like special art glasses by Duvel and Chimay.

The list of brews on offer is incredibly solid; these are the sorts of beers that fans should be handing Steve Nash. Here's a full run down:
