free beer, yes, FREE BEER


I get free beers then write a little bit of nonsense about them, all in the hopes that this will lead to more free beers. Christoffel here from Holland, reviewed at my friend Alan's beer Blog.

Would that all beer reviewers write like that. I'd read more of them. Well done, my friend.

Remind me to pick you up a bottle of Maudite or La Fin du Monde the next time you're here.

I would like to set the bar very low for beer reviewing. I have no idea what I am doing, but do it anyway. With pencil and paper for notes!

gr said...

Heck, forget other people's brews, Gord, I want your homebrew.

I'm sure Gord's is great but if you have never had Maudite you must try it - my current favourite, and considering that there seems to be an embargo on Chimay Red, it's the only dubbel readily available in these parts.

It's like liquid steak in a bottle ... Texture aplenty. :-)

would that be last month's pilsner Gord?

BR-an embargo???? OK what is Maudite, must look....

br said...

not a real embargo - it just seems that the flow from Belgium to the LCBO (ontario gate keepers of imported ale) has been stopped. I have no idea why, the local manager says supply is limited, so I've decided that there is a conspiracy afoot.

maudite, as I understand it, is brewed in the trappist/abbey tradition by a bonafied Belgium working for Unibroue in Quebec. La Fin du monde and Blanche de chambly are also fantastic examples of Quebec/Belgian ale.

br-as Alan has surely told you, there are seven hundred brews here at inger Lakes bevs. Yes, they have these guys, no probs, but they are quite pricey!!!!

br said...

What is pricey? Don't pay alot. we can have one when your up here for lunch. 2 bucks a bottle here.
