What’s better than brunch? A brunch with bier at BierCraft!
After considerable deliberation I selected a Mc Chouffe as my brunch bier. This is a Belgian Strong Ale brewed by Brasserie d’Achouffe in Achouffe, Belgium. ABV is 8%.
This bier pours a good cloudy brown with a decent beige head. The aroma is raisins, figs, honey, jasmine. It is full bodied, sweet on the palate with a long, slightly floral finish. Taste is honey, dates, figs, caramel.
I very much enjoyed this bier, and because it was on the sweet side it paired very well with my meal – the Oktoberfest Breakfast.
The Oktoberfest Breakfast consists of pancake-batter wrapped sausages, scrambled eggs, potatoes, and of course maple syrup. Everything about this was delicious and it definitely makes for a good bier-accompanied brunch.
