    Were you able to get Fou Foune or St. Lam to go? I think they were releasing it around that time.

    I forgot the name but I'm sure I took a picture. I'll post a pic later. I do remember getting a beer that was quite bitter/sour and low on carbination. Wife didn't like it much even though sours are her favorite.

    Total Wine stores have been a godsend to find Belgians, and well, anything.

    My wife and I went to a Brewers game this weekend and had a couple of hours to kill before checking into the hotel. I hadn't been to Milwaukee in almost 25 years so we wandered down to the historical riverwalk area to see what was up.

    We walked into the Lakeside Brewery and did the tour. http://www.lakefrontbrewery.com/

    The tour was great and very reasonable which came with tokens to try anything available which was a lot. I'll bet they had close to 20 beers on tap. Between the two of us we tried the Hop Jockey, River West Stein Amber Lager, a single IPA, the East Side Dark Lager, some kind of Scotch Ale, and the Organika.

    While I loved every one I tried, the Organika was a real surprise since it's an organic, Gluten Free beer. I tried this since it was a little lower alcohol than most of the beers and I was trying to not be completely bombed by 1 pm. I wasn't expecting much, but the Organika was REALLY good. It is a white belgian and had a great flavor. I had been drinking some Trippel the night before and this one tasted like sort of a light version of a Trippel. Tour this place and drink lots if you're in the Milwaukee area. They had some great food too. The best fried cheese curds I think I've ever had.

    Eyyyyy, welcome to my neck of the woods! Glad you were able to squeeze a brewery tour in; Lakefront has some real characters running the tours and some very good beer. Cheers.

    "Belgian style Amber Ale". Whatever it is, it's delicious. Haven't had a less than excellent beer from this brewery.
