In most countries there is an age limit for buying and consuming beer. With Fuck Art This Is Advertising Denmark’s To Øl are really pushing a few boundaries simultaneously.
Today I ventured as far as Mullingar in my quest for beer (well I had to go there for a work meeting but two birds were killed with one stone). A fellow beer aficionado recommended The Old Stand’s off licence. They have a pretty eclectic selection of beverages. This is where this label caught my eye.
And then I read the somewhat provocactive name! Apparently these labels have been censored in certain US states. The beer? Oh yes! It’s a Belgian style quadruple. It’s very rich, another Christmas pudding! There is fruit and brown sugar which go nicely with the hops. It’s a good beer for the time of year but it is a little syrupy for my taste. Almost worth it for the ‘artistic’ label alone! Oh and by the way I am against censorship for the most part…
You’d like Seattle – they have a slew of micro-brews – there was a corriander ale which was out of this world!
That certainly sounds like one I’d like to taste! Seattle is on my list of places to visit, I grew up in the grunge era…
It’s great, not very big – but the beers are numerous!
That’s good enough for me!
