St. Patrick's Day is upon us and while broadcasting this morning the Scranton, PA St. Patrick's Day parade was underway, but the Beer Geeks decided to take a look at quality over quantity this week!
The Belgians are coming! The Belgians are coming! Do NOT be afraid though, embrace them and partake of the fruits of their labor! This week we take a look at Belgian beers, 2 brewed in America and 2 brewed in Belgium (and the special 5th beer of course!)
Brewery Ommegang- Glimmerglass: Brewery Ommegang has built a solid reputation on brewing amazing Belgian beers right here in the U.S. of A. Their has been a lot of hype around their Game of Thrones beers, which the hype is justified, however the brewery is also still putting out some other new and fantastic beers, and Glimmerglass is one of them! This is a Saison, many are familiar with Hennepin, a beer we covered on this show previously. Compared to Hennepin, Glimmerglass is lighter in mouthfeel and ABV and is more in line with a traditional Saison. The yeast strain is really prevalent in this beer and is an absolutely perfect spring beer!
