AUGUST 21, 2017: BREWERY SPOTLIGHT ON UNIBROUE – CHAMBLY, (QUÉBEC) CANADA

Depending on how long one has followed Belgian Beer Journal and its history these past 4 years, most readers will note that is has been 8 months since we have written a BrewView on any Unibroue beer.

Since that time, we have debated (and re-debated over and over) which Unibroue beers should have a new BrewView on them? Do we write about more of the classics available in our market (which there are still 3 that richly deserve one), plus two more to try and obtain that are not immediately available to us? Or, do we wait as new releases make themselves available?

HAPPY 241ST BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!

FREEDOM’S PRICE

Today we celebrate freedom
thanks to those who came before.
Those brave men who fought and died
in each and every war.
Freedom always comes at a price,
And while we celebrate
We should tip our hats to the heroes
who made our country great.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

JUNE 25, 2017: BREWERY SPOTLIGHT ON SIPHON BREWING – DAMME, BELGIUM

By very special arrangement, we bring you our third installment in our new BrewView series called “BREWERY SPOTLIGHT”! For June 2017, our spotlight is on SIPHON BREWING from Damme, Belgium.

Siphon is part of a collection of new brewers in Belgium who are taking time-honored Belgian brewing traditions, and using other outside brewing influences (English, German) and putting their own spin on classic styles…

REMEMBERING D-DAY: JUNE 6, 1944

On June 6, 1944, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline, to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, the Allies gained a foot-hold in Continental Europe. The cost in lives on D-Day was high. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 Soldiers to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Adolf Hitler’s crack troops.

BELGIAN BEER JOURNAL remembers the brave soldiers that gave all in the defense of Liberty and Freedom against evil and tyranny. We would like to honor all those who gave up their lives for the ultimate sacrifice. We also salute those who survived that fateful day and still are breathing today. All of us owe you a TREMENDOUS debt of gratitude. We thank you for your bravery and service to your country… May GOD bless you.

Sincerely,

Belgian Beer Journal

 

MAY 29, 2017: BREWVIEW ON CAULIER 28 IMPERIAL STOUT

Now this is a treat for us! About 2 weeks ago, our good friend Stu Stuart of BELGIAN BEER ME! BEER TOURS OF BELGIUM informed us that a care package was on its way to us. He said “I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but the beers I am sending you are very special.”
