It’s been quite a while since we’ve published a Belly Beer. Believe it or not, I’ve had one complaint basically saying, “who gives a crap what’s in your belly!” and 4 or 5 requests to know what sorts of beers Mrs. Beerbuzz & I are drinking. Since I’ll be heading down on vacation shortly, I thought I’d published some timed-belly-posts to keep the blog somewhat active while I’m away (assuming we have little or no internet access on the beach). Today’s belly beer was very tasty and my only regret is that I didn’t “Garde” it a little longer. Southampton’s Biere de Garde French Farmhouse Ale came to me courtesy of the NEPA Beer CLub’s Stockertown split and I really enjoyed it. Great flavor and it just felt like it was going to get even better. This style is meant to be cellared and even after cellaring it for 10 months, I think it would be even better after 12. In any case thank to Phil Markowski & the rest of the guys in Royersford PA for a yummy brew.
For those that are wondering about the odd looking bottle photo…think frosty bottle looking through the cooler door!
