I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Trappist Beer

3 Comments

I’ve always loved my beer, and have tried/experimented with easily well over 100 brands/names. And those who know me, know that my two favourite beers of recent times are Creemore and Pilsner Urquell … both very high quality and both easy to drink, and drink … and … lol. But since my self imposed beeratorium … and raising a glass with increasing infrequency (I’m somewhat embarrassed calling myself a beer drinker now … I feel like an excommunicated member, lol), I was prompted purchasing these. Trappist beers are a select group … only seven Trappist Monasteries qualify and are permitted to brew beer to be sold as Authentic Trappist Product. Inasmuch as I’m drinking less … hell, I might as well drink the very best … AND these beers (unlike my aforementioned beloved pilsners) are meant to be consumed at a much warmer temperature and really aren’t favourable to drinking more than one or two at a go … you ain’t guzzling, you won’t be pounding these back, lol. They’re meant to be savoured and enjoyed sparingly … which is exactly what I’m doing on this lazy hazy Sunday afternoon. Cheers y’all!!

The obligatory LCBO receipt …

Loved the champagne style corked tops on the 750 ml bottles …

Don’t own a Chimay chalice (working on it, lol), my Leffe beer glass substitutes …

And a halfsack of Anchor’s Liberty Ale (old habits die hard, lol) …

  1. ever tried la fin du monde?! it’s a belgian triple and it is out of this world delicious.

    • No Audrey I haven’t, but I have had Blanche De Chambly (white wheat beer – same brewer) and later on today am going to my favourite pub/restaurant for dinner (with quite an extensive beer list – hope they have it *fingers crossed*) and will ask for it because of your positive recommendation!! Thank you Audrey, cheers!!

      • oh yes, i’m familiar with de chambly. goodness, if you get la fin du monde on draught, you’ll have to let me know. i’ve only ever had in the champagne style bottles. i find it particularly delectable paired with a gruyere cheese. have fun and enjoy whatever you try! 🙂 cheers to you
