Assis Toi: It’s five o’clock somewhere…

For the latest episode of Assis Toi, I sat down for a beer with Chris Reynolds from Stillwell Beer Bar.

Located on Barrington Street, Reynolds and the rest of the crew have a great devotion to beer in all its forms. In their infinite wisdom, they decided that a form that might work for me is a lambic beer.

Essentially, lambics are beers brewed with wild yeasts that are present in the air. In this case, it was an Oude Kriek Vielle, a fruit lambic made with cherries.

The instant I tasted it I understood it, or rather it understood me.

My brain didn’t register that I was drinking a beer – something generally malty, yeasty – but something dry and crisp, with a mild sourness in its finish, but not unpleasantly so.

Take a listen to Chris wax poetic about beers in the latest episode of Assis Toi, which you can stream here. or download the podcast here.

Cheers!
