Useful French Phrases: Gueule de Bois = Hangover

Not much time to blog for the next few days. I hope to resume in full force after the New Year.

Meanwhile, I thought you might enjoy this loose translation of an invitation from Moeder Lambic, received via Facebook (that name in italics because it should always be whispered, per the policy of the gents at the Brewing Network):

Between December 24 to January 1, we lack pretexts to throw a party. So the Moeder Lambic, in its infinite goodness, is organizing a soirée on December 30.

Every year we close for the first week of January. It would be a shame to waste all those open kegs! This is where you intervene: Starting a midnight, the draft beers go for €1.50! And just so the party doesn't end too soon... we'll open more kegs!

To commence the hostilities, we will hold a raffle after midnight.

The Moeder Lambic team wishes you a joyous hangover!

Want to know what's on tap? The regular stable is Senne Taras Boulba, De Ranke Guldenberg, Cantillon Lambic and Faro, St. Feuillien Blonde, Grisette Fruits des Bois, and Dupont Biére de Miel Bio. Current featured beers are La Rulles Triple and Gouden Carolus Christmas.


  1. That party was terrific, by the way. Props to Jean, Nassim and their team. After midnight the staff was going round with trays full of beer from the kegs they were emptying. You'd ask what it was and hear them scream, "Westmalle Dubbel!" or "Biolégère!" Plus one guy brought a bag of wigs for people to wear.

  2. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I have been studying to learn French language. I have gathered many useful recourse as well as taken various French courses such as French for dummies courses , pimsleur Comprehensive French Level 1, Level 2 , Level 3 etc to learn French language.
