Shiner Wild Hare: A Valentine's Day Quickie

This reminded me today that I had not done my post on Wild Hare. The folks at McGarrah Jessee were kind enough to send me a few bottles to "review." The beer was good. An almost solid pale ale. Nice bitterness. Easy to drink. It was bit muddy maltwise. I want to try it on draught. Great packaging as always. A promising foray into ale-hood for Shiner.

Next an IPA? Imperial Stout?

Euro Beer #28: Un Zèbre à Montmartre

In the fall of 2007 my wife and I traveled through Europe for 10 weeks. We ate a lot of food and drank of a lot of beer (and wine). Not enough food, not enough beer. Being cheap in Paris:

We were hanging out in Montmartre and we needed a drink. Duh. This bar looked decent. Busy with a youngish crowd. I had a Kanterbräu, which was refreshing, but nothing special. Sofia had a pleasant glass of Sauvignon Blanc. More sightseeing?

WTF. Self guided tour. I've done that for free at Circle. No offense to Circle, but this is a lame Groupon. I don't really check my Groupon emails anymore. I usually delete them without even viewing deal, but today "brewery" jumped out at me. I'm over Groupon.
