Cantillon, Part 1
Cantillon, Part 2
November 6, 1998
On our way to Antwerp, Paul made a "short" stop at Cantillon.
Wel will go there tomorrow for the first brew of the season, but Paul will not, as
he needs to go home and get some sleep.
Jean Pierre gave us a short tour, but he was very busy getting ready for the brew
tomorrow. It seems his hot water tank has chosen an inopportune momement to go on
He introduced us to his son, Jean Paul, who also works in the brewery, as does Jean
Pierre's wife, which makes it a Van Roy family enterprise.
He poured us two beers, the gueze and the Kriek. The gueze is very sour, and most
complex. The Kriek is not as sharp, a bright red color, with an irridescent head.
I told Jean Pierre his beers are the best. I'm sure Paul agrees, as
does the Mad Brewer's Wife.
