drinking beer in the South of France and then writing about it

Craft beer of the month : March



"They can't lock me in here forever" 

France's mandatory confinement has made it difficult to support local businesses this month. Good news is, most cave à bières are open during the lockdown as they are considered as an essential business (hooray for beer). In addition to this, many bottle shops are, while reducing their hours, accepting pre-orders online and over the phone with the possibility to deliver.

This craft beer of the month was purchased at the Allez Hops cave à bière in Nice, France. 

#StayAtHome but remember to #ShopLocal . 

What: New England Pale Ale

Who: Boundary, Belfast, Ireland

Where: While I infinitely agree that life and beer are "best when shared and enjoyed with others", as stated on the can, I gleefully enjoyed this one alone in my garden.

When: March 2020

Why? After a long day of finally tending to the garden, there's no better taste than a cold and bitter beer. At 4.5% , this session beer was easy to drink between pulling out weeds, without falling into them. 

Dear Craft Beer Drinker in Confinement,
Craft beer of the month : February
