In keeping with this whole consumption thing I've got going on here I'm compelled to make yet another suggestion. You know that no-mans-land time of day on Thanksgiving, pre-dinner? That time of day when you've caught up with relatives, you've busied yourself with mundane details and you've checked/basted/looked at the roasting bird a billion times and you can't do it again? Time crawls and it's only 2 o'clock in the afternoon. We usually serve the big feast around 5 or 6pm, so this staring-at-the-ceiling time is now met with a little diversion.
Discover Life - Discover Leffe.
Dorky tag-line if you ask me but it's a really good beer. Best six pack money can buy. High quality Belgian Abbey beer. Pictured left is the high-octane Tripel which is crazy rich and potent. We prefer the Leffe Blonde. For a mid-afternoon cool down. Can't tell you what a good beer this is. You need really only one, just to smooth out the rough edges. Any more and you're likely going to chop a finger with those onions or celery.
Originally brewed by monks near Dinant, Belgium, Leffe Blonde continues to be brewed to the traditional recipe created in 1240 in the monastery. Leffe Blonde with its distinct heritage and appealing taste is without doubt the number one among Belgian Abbey beers, or so they say.
And then right after the beer you have a cup of coffee, just in case.
