Cantillon, Part 1
Cantillon, Part 2
November 7, 1998
Took the train to Brussels to check out the Cantillon Brew day.
They served all the beers, some from bottles, some directly fron the cask.
We shared a table (old cask) with a group of three, who attend all the brew-ins, and sit
at this particular table. They (with a little help from the beer trekkers) drank
mostly gueze. Lots of gueze.
We also tried the Kriek, which was served from the cask, and the Iris, which is
essentially a gueze made from all malt.
On the tour we met a brewer, Mike, from the former Norwester brewery, who is now living in
Jean Pierre signed a poster of the Rose de Gambrinus
label. The text is in French, so we will need to get an exact translation,
however, he alludes to the label being a picture of Bill and Monica, and the cigar.
Jean Paul also signed a poster of the Kriek label
for us, roughly translated as "your friend".
Shoveling the mash tun is hot work
We're getty artsy now.
