Gueuze booze and Canadian cheese

Last Friday, Seth and I had the super privilege of attending a get-together at our friend’s house. This same friend recently returned from Montréal with some raw milk cheese that isn’t available here in the States due to the fact it hasn’t been aged for 60 days. Sadly, I didn’t get any pictures (enjoying the company and cheese too much) BUT it was AMAZING. So salty. Much balance.  

 

As would be expected with this lovely group of friends and new acquaintances there were some super tasty beers to be had.  Seth and I brought a bottle of “Oude Quetsche Tilquin à l’Ancienne ” by Gueuzerie Tilquin.

A Lambic of mouth watering purple plums. (Sounds dirty). We first came across this beer during a crazy epic trip we took a couple years ago (which i’ll have to discuss in a post all it’s own). We happened to find a place that had this beer on tap. Seth ordered us two glasses and the bartender looked horrified and said, “You don’t want. Trust me. Is acid beer.” To which Seth replied, “OH, WE WANT!”  While it’s only 6.4% ABV it’s very heavy on flavor and tartness (which we love) and so you can imagine our sparkly eyes when he served our drinks in two large pint glasses.

So, not only was it lots of fun to revisit this beer with that company and that cheese (and lot’s of other vegan/vegetarian friendly amazingness) ……but that was also the same night the Kings played Duck Hunt. >:D  GO KINGS!!!!
