On the Table

We do not have enough Belgian-style table beers in the world, so I am glad to see that The Bruery has canned up their La Petite Provision, an “easy-drinking and full of flavor thanks to additions of Thai basil and lemongrass to the brew. Herbal, floral, and slightly sweet…”

Wisconsin Brewery # 1 – Funk Factory Geuzeria

Maybe those intrepid Beer Bloggers that went to Milwaukee for the Beer Bloggers Conference got to try beers from our first Wisconsin stop, Funk Factory Geuzeria.

They brew a beer style, Meerts. Another “forgotten” style in the lambic family. The FFG describes it Meerts thusly, “meaning March, is the low alcohol (2-4%) “table” or “field” beer traditionally made from the second runnings of lambic’s turbid mash. I refer to it as Lambic’s baby brother.”

So, obviously, I would focus on the original and variants in my first taster tray….
Cherry Meerts
Peach Meerts
Blood, Sweat, and Unicorn Tears (Cranberry sour)
Cervino (Chardonnay/Sour ale hybrid)
