Beers of the World: Petrus Dubbel Bruin

weather: rainshower
outside: 9.3°C
mood: ...
I was in the liquor store today, getting some booze for the weekend. I was invited to beer with the guys, but at about 1630h I couldn't wait for them anymore. I usually work 0830h-1630h and the guys usually do 1000h-1800h. I was pretty worn and wanting out by 1600h.

Crazy rough week. Good stuff happening, but crazy rough time with it. I wanted to unwind.

While I was paying for some Christoffel and some Bacardi strawberry coolers, the cashier's eyes light up and he says to me, "Oh! Have you tried Petrus Double Brown? It's a slightly caramelized and a bit sweeter than this. I really think you'll like it." He points at my Christoffel.

I was about to say "Oh, no thanks...", but he was way too excited about showing it to me. Before I could stammer out any kind of response, he darted away to the shelves at the back and came back with a Petrus Dubbel Bruin.

I looked at it and decided to try just one because he seemed quite certain that I'd like it. He rang it in and said, "You'll be back for that one." with a knowing smirk =D

Wow, he called it. =) It's pretty amazing, it's made by Bavik, a Belgian brewery. I don't know if I like it as much as the Christoffel, but it's definitely in the running.

I might see if a few people will hang out with me on a software release night and have a small office beer garden so that I'll have company during the release. =)
