In special honour of the Tour de France kicking off its 2020 edition in the beautiful city of Nice, la Brasserie Bleue collaborated with their friendly neighbourhood bicycle repair shop, Bicicletta Shop, on a very special, limited-edition beer.
Beercicletta is the brewery's first - but certainly not its last - lager. Brewed with pilsner and a sprinkle of oats, the beer was then dry-hopped with 10 g/l of fragrant Mosaic hops.
Prepared in the brewery's smaller kettle, this special edition beer is exclusively available in 33cl bottles at the Cave à Bière Allez Hops until the stock runs dry !
What : Pilsner Mosaic SMaSH Hoppy Lager
Who : La Brasserie BLEUE (Nice, France)
Where : despite the rain, the face masks, and the city of Nice shutting down its streets for the Tour de France, the beer was enjoyed at the Cave à Bière Allez Hops
When : 29th of August 2020
Why ? Because it's not every day that the biggest cycling race in the world departs from your town !
