Very cool! There's a meadery about an hour or so away from me, never thought I would like the stuff, but surprise surprise, I love it!

I bet the end of Friday can't come soon enough, eh Empress? Especially after all the OT you guys had to pull last weekend, lol.

For part of this past week, I was in Russian River Valley in California..... 

I heard from a number of locals that I HAD to try Pliny the Elder (a beer).  Being that neither my wife nor I like IPAs, I decided to check it out on the internet.  Multiple beer ranking sites all gave it a perfect 100 / 100.  So I was like...... ***, alright, I've gotta try it!  So we went to the local General Store, got some sandwiches, and I grabbed 2 Plinys (one for me, one for my wife).  No such luck!!!  The beer is in such high demand, they will only sell 1 per customer.  So my wife and I had to split one instead! lol

I gotta say..... even though I don't like hoppy beers (especially IPAs).... this was pretty darn good!  Big flavor.... and super-hoppy, but somehow not overwhelming and sort of balanced (perhaps because I read that they use 40% more malt in the Pliny than in their traditional IPA..... though also twice as many hops, sooooo?).

To me, IPAs are best on a hot summer day..... And it honestly was a great way of cleansing our palette between wineries.

Pliny the Elder (the Roman naturalist and author) is credited with discovering Hops, btw.

LOL we're in a hop craze are we? This is such a nice topic. Tasty topic too. :D 

Before my vacation I tried this beer:

And I was very delighted how the Duvel brewers managed to retain the typical "Duvel" taste while adding a definite IPA-like taste to it (this year they used an American hop).

Maybe 2017 will be 'Mead Year'?

As 2016 is, to me, 'IPA Year'.

I know I'd enjoy 'Mead Year' a lot [drool]

when I was a youngster, I loved Dinkelacker Dunkel but it is no longer imported into the US [sad]

I went to Oktoberfest in Munich last year. I expected the beer to be fantastic and it was just OK. Still drank plenty of it.

I took this last week. :) 

Every Belgian can recognize this. Beer served in clay cups + cheese sandwiches = MAREDSOUS!!!

It's an abbey where monks used to live self-sufficiently, producing all they needed and selling their cheese and beer.

The abbey is situated in the middle of nature (lot of woods and valleys etc.). The landscapes there are fantastic.Résultat de recherche d'images

(I didn't take that pic. It's from Google :)).

If you want a taste of the Maredsous experience, just take Maredsous cheese, celery salt, 2 slices of bread, and savor it while drinking Maredsous beer from a clay cup! ;) 

(BTW, abbey beers are THE BEST!)

Awesome [thumbup] and it's one of the cheapest special beer in our supermarkets :D

The microbrewerie phenomenon is spreading to France... A local brewer told there were 3 new breweries opening and one closing every weeks... Yet, wheats and mostly hops are still often imported from Czech Republic, Austria, Germany...

The local beer, sweet, fruity yet rich in flavors :

I also like their more intense "Triple".

I also enjoy that belgian trappist :
