LOL! Yes, I finally completed the challenge of drinking 180 beers in 180 days! How did I do it? With Tsjeesus! Ha ha! Yes, the Sturdy Brewers produced this great Christmas beer … and I just had it.
In their own words: “Deep to orange blond abbey triple winterbeer which has been lagered for 8 months on different stonefruits. Tsjeeses was born out of a 5 year brew experience regarding x-mas beer without being capable of finding a suitable name up to now. With the name came a face, a caricature actually, that was drawn on the day Urbain, our brew master and master brewer, drank too many Tsjeeses’s. Every time he drinks one, he says “Tsjeeses, what a beer”. Therefore the name is more an expression of stupefaction than a curse. We have had already many discussions around the pronounciation of “Tsjeeses”. Very close would be that you say “cheeses” or cheese in plural.”
If you get the opportunity, go for a bottle of this! I picked this beer up at the Delirium Cafe in Brussels a couple of weeks ago … oh, and happy birthday Jill!
