Last month I got one of the best Christmas presents ever: I went for a weekend trip to Belgium to visit the Alvinne brewery and watch them brew. It was a special invitation for members of the Alvinne Fellowship. What an experience to see them doing their thing up close! I took some great shots of the brew day, so I thought I would share them with you, including the story of the Fellowship, their excellent beers and why this brewery has become one of my favorites in a relatively short time.
Recently I had the opportunity to tour the Hertog Jan brewery and taste different vintages of their Grand Prestige, including the new barrel aged version. Here is a short recap of that wonderful day with a behind-the-scenes look at the brewery.
There are so many beer podcasts out there; it’s pretty tough choosing one in the cornucopia of beer banter and opinions on beers and breweries. Here are my favorite ones on beer science, beer reviews and behind-the-scenes interviews with beer industry professionals.
