When you are alone on an island, any beer is a good beer! This bottle was courtesy of Ian, who brought it out to me a couple of weeks ago as a birthday gift. Now that I have drank it, I believe that I am ready to leave this island and head back to the land of loved ones and beer. Farewell Race Rocks!
With my fellow Belgian exchange student friend James of Newfoundland visiting me for the first time in 5 years, it was merely a foregone conclusion that we would be drinking some Belgian beer… nearly every night. This led to the creation of Stamhuis Week, and more than a few good beers were consumed. On this particular night, we were joined by my father and my friend Gavin. We started off with some Hoegaarden, and it turned out to be the tone setter for a night full of tangy beers that were low on malt and low on hops. Sounds like a wheat beer night to me!
