Click. Way too young. And let's not forget his great whisky writings.

I'm not a huge fan of the Oberon but it seems the most accessible for the masses so it is the one that is most often on tap. It is a summer beer most change out to Pale Ale for the fall/winter (I lik

Foret saison from Brasserie Dupont. This is a really interesting beer. Saisons are odd enough as it is, but this is like hippie saison, all organic with notes of rootbeer disguising the 7.5% ABV. Nice. I was at a baking class with Peter Reinhart at A Southern Season (jumbo-sized Gourmet Hut in Chapel Hill, NC). They have a great selection of imports & oddities so on the way out I stopped by the beer section. There was a 4-pack of Foret and the price tag on one of the bottle caps said $5.15. Seemed like a bargain. I hadn't had Foret before so I thought I'd give it a try. It wasn't until I hit the register that I noticed that the $5.15 price tag was on each of the bottle caps. I didn't feel like trudging all the way back through the store, so I bit the bullet. I'm glad I did. This is good stuff.

Ommegang's Three Philosophers. The first lambic I've ever had that didn't make me gag.

 

This is a good brew.

 

Ommegang's entire line is well done, IMHO. How could you say something bad about a place that offers Chocolate Indulgence .

Allagash Grand Cru, which was nice, but I didn't like it as much as I like their White, and the legendary Hobgoblin. The Hobgoblin is pretty darn wonderful. I like it a lot. It's a lot milder than one would expect, but with a roasty note that ties it all together. I'm brewing a version of this sometime early next week. If I get even close, it will quickly become my house beer.

Chimay (blue label) - worked so well yesterday with dry roasted mussels (no wonder of course). And pretty good tonight on its own while i'm waiting for the dinner to be cooked.

Chimay is THE beer to use in a beef carbonnade. We tend to use the brown label because that is what we can get.
