OK, so while we all wait in eager anticipation of the Thanet Guzzlefest I thought a little tasting session might be fun. I've been promising to introduce you to the wonders of the spontaneously fermented Flemish beer style that is Gueuze and it's a promise I'll fulfill next Saturday, 1st of March.
Oude gueuze is a blend of lambic beer fermented by the natural inoculation of a host of diverse micro-beasties. The result is a stunning complexity and I want you to experience it.
So, an early (midday to 2pm) informal light lunch it is then. I'll provide a red & white cheque table cloth, some bread, veggie spicy sausage (sliced), perhaps a little smoked fish, maybe some silver outjes and obviously a little gouda. Oh, and the beers on me too. You bring a little cheese and some cold meat (if that's your bag). With any luck the sun'll be cracking the flags and we'll have a pretty chilled out lunch, the Flemish way........
Oh, and absolutely no obligation - I love this style of beer and I want to persuade you to love it too.
