Good morning, biéreophiles.
Want to try the new Gueuze Tilquin on draft, from Wallonia's first latter-day lambic blender? Then wander into Delirium this Friday, June 3, anytime after 4 p.m. If you want to meet Pierre Tilquin and ask him why he would do something so completely insane -- or perhaps just thank him for it -- then look for him there around 10 p.m. For more on the Gueuzerie Tilquin, check out Chuck Cook's interesting post here or my previous posts here.
Also new in town: a label from Brasserie de la Senne called Brussels Calling. I'll have more on that for you soon. Shelton Brothers will import it to the States, as they are wont to do.
Speaking of the Sheltons, Dan will be giving a talk on saisons and biéres de garde during Philly Beer Week. Hey, that's next week. The talk will be on Wednesday, June 8, 7:30 p.m. at the Farmer's Cabinet. Dan Shelton is a man of deep knowledge and strong opinions -- two of my favorite qualities -- so if you're in Philly and interested in farmhouse beers then you really need to be there.
Gueuze, Senne, Saisons. Damn. It's far too early to be this thirsty.
