OMH - Beer #2000

Beer #2000

Finally, after years of hard work (well...) we reached beer #2000 a night in August 1999 at Akkurat. Great realales such as Ash Vine Frying Tonight, very sweet and unexciting Belgian stouts like Wilson Mild Stout and Leroy Stout, interesting Belgian ales like the creamy McChouffe Brune d'Ardenne or Oeral, the amazing Celis Pale Bock, a brand created by the Belgian Pierre Celis in USA, but license brewed in Belgium, or maybe especially the vinuos, complex and treacherously strong Napoleon, draught the amazing Celis Pale Bock, a brand created by the Belgian Pierre Celis in USA, but license brewed in Belgium, led us up to the last beer of our second beer millenium.

Beer #1998 & 1999 was two outstanding fruit lambics from Cantillon: Cantillon Foufoun, discretely flavoured with peach, and Cantillon Cuvée Lou Pèpé with raspberry flavour.

As beer #1000 with a French bière de garde what could be more appropriate than a beer in the same style. 3 Monts from France suited us perfect. It was discretely malty, very complex and very lively. A perfect beer to celebrate #2000 with!

Celebrations continued later at other places, but with less memorable beers. The most noteworthy thing that happened was the return of long lost member Marie, who attended her first rating since 1994... However a few beers deserves some notice. As it is not usual for us to encounter good Spanish beers, the dark lager Mahou Negra with some decent malt flavours surprised a bit. Same goes for the Portuguese . Kommodori Vaalea Lager is notch above the Finnis everyday lager, just as Moretti Baffo d'oro is a notch above the Italian standard lager.
