Gord and I celebrated his birthday today by ending up at Smokeless Joe's.
I treated him to some Deus Brut des Flandres ... a champagne-style beer that was $51.25 for a 750ml bottle and is 11.5% (it's the second on this list).
Here's Eddie, our bartender, getting ready to pour it for us.
It's poured into a champagne flute.
It was tasty. Had I been blindfolded, I never would have known that it was beer. It felt like champagne but didn't taste like it. It was a different taste ... but good.
