Give a Dog a Cantillon.

This was Cantillon Iris on draft last week at Moeder Lambic. Not on hand pull, but á la pression. American geek cafés get this stuff fairly often, the bastards, but you never see it in Belgium. Nerver erver.

Jean said to wait 15 minutes so the beer could warm up, but it was a really nice day. There's something naughty about drinking serious lambic chilled on CO2. So wrong and so right.

Moeder Lambic is currently the best beer café in Belgium. I want to be clear about that. The other contenders can contact me personally if they want to sway my opinion. But they have a long way to go.

The latest on their planned downtown location: late September or early October. We are optimistic again. Stay tuned.
