Last autumn, Khiran and his friend Will helped me with the Blind Bad Beer Tasting. This autumn he has selflessly volunteered to go to Eastern Europe for me, sending back all kinds of interesting (and occasionally useful) information about beer.
“The best beer I’ve had was on tap in a hostel in Albania, and apparently it’s only served at that hostel. I had a good wheat beer last night, but I have no clue what it was because my method of ordering consisted of pointing at the (unlabelled) tap. Most beers in Bulgaria and Romania come in 2 or 2.5L plastic bottles… mmmm. Will continue to do research.”
He also included this photo, explaining, “here’s a bad photo, but I had to take it cause I couldn’t get over the price of a Westmalle Dubbel in Serbia – about $2 Canadian.” Good to know, although I know from personal experience that the price of Belgian beer in Belgium is even more mind boggling for us Canadians!
I’m kidding that he went to Europe just for me. Stay tuned for more updates from Khiran.
Spoon It On Khiran!
