Rasp-beer-y


The snow ‘storm’ in DC brought a government shutdown.  This was the first time I’ve ever been able to actually have a paid snow day!  So, come 1pm, the snow was gone, the sun was out.  What did that mean? Time to go (Christmas) shopping.  I only had the intention of finishing off getting gifts for those on my list but when I went to the mecca of grocery, kitchen gadget, wine and beer store, things changed.  After some discussion with the beer man and other shoppers of the current offerings, New Belgium’s (new) Frambozen came up.  Nobody had actually had it for several years.  The name itself screams raspberry then the description lures you into a brown ale.  You can’t leave that poor thing sitting on the shelf!  Had some a bit later.  Very nice, smooth, nice hint of the fruit, but not overwhelming.  Pick some up for a friend, yourself, or to take to a party to celebrate the season.  Happy Holidays!
