Gueuze Mega Blend

How about this for some news, that I got at work.

About: Creation of a new lambic beer, especially for the 2009 Toer de Gueuze. The event will occur on Sunday April 26, at nine of the eleven remaining lambic producers: all except Cantillon and Girardin.

The new beer is called “Geuze Mega Blend.”

This brew is a blend of lambics from eight of the 11 remaining lambic producers; namely: Boon, De Cam, Drie Fonteinen, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Timmermans and De Troch. Geuze Mega Blend was bottled October 15, and is currently maturing in 75 cl bottles.

I am intrigued. I really should look at my email inbox more often.

*edit – highlighted on, seemingly this text has come somewhat edited to me, from Chuck Cook’s blog – here –  he goes there a few times a year; bumped into him on occasion.
