Kush Hosts Miami Heat; Taps Rare Chimay Red Keg

Kush in Wynwood is having a big week.

First, the beer and burger joint played host to Miami Heat's "big three" and friends after Saturday's win. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Gabrielle Union, Adrienne Bosh, and friends chowed down on burgers, ordering "two of everything," according to a source.

Now, owner Matt Kuscher has scored his own win -- the first (and possibly only) keg of Chimay Red in the state of Florida.

The dubbel-style beer brewed at the Notre-Dame de Scourmont Abbey in Belgium has been brewed since 1862, with the current recipe crafted by Father Theodore after World War II. It's been distributed in kegs in Belgium but, until now, has only been available in the United States in bottles. This is one of the few authentic Trappist beers, with only ten monasteries currently brewing.

But, Kuscher says, his distributor wanted Kush to have the first keg in Florida. Kuscher describes the beer as cooper in color with a white, creamy head that's "nutty and sweet" in flavor.

If you want to get your hands on some, better make it quick. Kush just tapped the keg last night and expects it to run out before the weekend ends. Ten bucks gets you a glass.
