Meister brau

I'm drinking less these days, but I'm still enjoying fine beers. Imagine my delight when I came across these items recently in the specialty brews section of our local market:

The Monk-themed Belgian ale was otherwordly. ("Monk." "Abbey." Get it?)

The Zappa beer wasn't quite so good. And how quirky to name a brew after a dude who shunned alcohol. Apparently, it was a labor of love. And apparently, there is to be a whole series of these. Both of which are good reasons to give the brewer a big thumbs up.

UPDATE: Apparently, there is an IJG-related brew out there as well. Yup. It's a pity they mis-spelled the cyber-handle of our lead singer, but considering that we didn't even ask them for this free publicity, I'm not going to complain:

Imagine my disappointment to find out that the Monk beer is only Belgian-style, and not Belgian. Call me a snob, but that kind of strikes me like Australian chardonnay (which I gladly drink, but still).

Yeah. I'd be curious to get your take on this stuff. Next time we're overseas I'll bring you a bottle!
