Another piece of Mail Art from my sister! This is her fourth submission; I challenge you to beat her total.
So Stella Artois decided to release a cider. Although I suspect that it was AB InBev who decided to release a cider, and they chose the Stella Artois brand as the route they would take for marketing. Unfortunately this cider—which by virtue of being a cider brewed in New York has nothing to do with the famous Belgian pilsner—is a rather dull tasting affair.
Another Mail Art item sent to me by my sister. This one is a collage of four different beer labels/boxes and one wine label.
After two months of tree planting I am once again in the position to post somewhat regular blog updates. Like many people, I have been watching as much of the FIFA World Cup as I possibly can, and along with my blood allegiance to England, I took a fancy to Belgium’s team this year. Alas neither team is still with us, but for one brief afternoon Belgium helped me to a wonderful level of intoxicated bliss. That’s right; during Belgium’s Round of 16 battle with the United States I decided to drink Belgian beer until they lost, or if they won, until it was no longer a good idea. At the beginning of the match I poured myself a Rochefort 8. This delicious beer is one of the finest ales on earth, brewed by Trappist monks and extremely complex. I really ought to write a post about Trappist ales sometime, but suffice it to say for now that every Trappist is worth tasting. As they say in Belgium, “a Trappist a day keeps the doctor away!”
