Breweries "Visited"

Bounce, Bounce, Bounce....

Beer #115 Blanche de Bruxelles / Brasserie Lefebvre, Quenast, Belgium

I'm always in awe of great writing, and Spencer Hall from the college football blog Every Day Should Be Saturday has done it again.  Sadly we share a common bond, as he had to put his dog Isis to sleep today. The comments in the thread have become both a makeshift memorial for the furry friends lost and a celebration of those still by our side.  Plus lots of pictures of dogs, which I could stare at for hours.

Today I'm drinking a Belgian White, or witbeir, from Brasserie Lefebvre.  Feels like I haven't poured a Belgian in ages.  In the glass, this beer shows off a cloudy yellow color and thick white foam.  The aroma has soft of yeast and citrus.  A mellow beer at 4.5% ABV, Blanche de Bruxelles has flavors of orange peel, grain, and yeast, and has a light sweetness.
The brewery dates back to 1876, and the sixth generation is now running the daily operations.  Definitely worth a try for those looking for a lighter option.

Thing to Think About Today:
For those who have been reading this blog for a while, you know of my current obsession for music performed by artists from other genres.  I'm still waiting to form that rap cover acoustic group, but responses from other interested parties (who actually have musical talent) have been slow in arriving.  Someone has to be with me on this.

If you need more motivation and want to see YET ANOTHER example of the awesome crossover appeal, please check Young the Giant's take on R. Kelly.  Yes, you read that correctly.  If we do form a group, we're getting fur coats for when we perform, as I believe that really enhances the feel.  The first minute of this video is talking - either sit patiently and listen, or fast forward through the first 60 seconds to a glorious cover.  Now let's all think about.... that toot toot... that beep beep:

"And after the show it's the after party, and after the party it's the hotel lobby"
