Sounds like they went shopping in the cheese aisle by accident.

Had a big bottle of Chimay for new years. Mmm, Mmm! When everyone else was popping their champagne cork, I got to pop a cork too.

I can never really figure out the true defition of "ironic" and good real-life examples, but it might be something like being too hung-over to make a batch of homebrew.

No, grodney, it's meeting the man of your dreams and then meeting his beautiful wife.

We did the same thing only with a 1.5 of Gulden Draak. It went over very well and I think I got some new people hooked on Belgians.

I got to drink the Westy 12 alongside of my favorite beer in the world Rochefort 10 the other day, and let me say it was very impressive and might be even better than the Rochefort. Further tastings will have to be done to be sure.

That label makes me think I would be ingesting something other than beer. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

The last beer from the cheese aisle:

Alba Scots Pine Ale.
Ingredients: Malted Barley Bree, Scots Pine and Spruce sprigs.

That's it. That's the list.

Now I'm thinking Euell Gibbons. "Ever eat a pine tree? Many parts are edible."

Probably need to be on the edge of old to remember that commercial.
