Apparently when Belgian monks would fast for Lent, they would still allow themselves to drink beer. If they were drinking anything like this delicious meal in a glass we doubt they would have gone too hungry, much less remember fasting at all. Leave it to the clever branding gurus in San Francisco’s 21st Amendment Brewery to create this perfectly packaged and named Belgian Strong Ale. Waves of vanilla, toffee, and macadamia nut complement the yeasty nose and round body of this ale. This mahogany colored ale would pair perfectly with anything from Mom’s crockpot. Especially some hardy beef stew and a guilt trip about not going to medical school.
