Long-ish but excellent stuff: thanks Jacob

>>Straffe Hendrik Exclusive. It is 8% and it has a picture of a man with a head shaped as a half moon and it says "Celebrate the year 2000". Is this a special brew?<<

Yes, they had this on sale at the brewery for couple of years from 2000 onwards - I never got round to buying it, though, so have no idea if its any good.

>>He said it would be too expensive to brew and that he wouldn't be able to sell it to the Belgians beacuse of the price<<

We need to start telling Armand that he can easily sell it to the Brits, the Yanks, the Danes, and Joris: surely if he could do a deal with someone like Dan Shelton he could arrange for the whole lot to be shifted, reducing his risk to zero and making a lot of us very very happy. Similar to what happened with various other beers such as DDB Reserva and others that pretty much went to the US only.

Excellent stuff on Cantillon, sounds like you found some great, rare beer there Jacob.

And how was the organ thing at Grote Dorst?? - did Paul Girardin play?

Where are you going on your next trip in two weeks?

Cheers

Jeremy
