It’s a beery hot day for International Beer Day

International Beer Day 2015
Representing England, Italy, Brazil and Hawaii. Got beer? Picked up last night at Auchan Merate (with the exception of the Wold Top Brewery beers)

Chestnut, sour fruit, elderflower, and even a saffron beer! We’ve been downing several brews (other than our belgian trappist stash) since the month of May, but there is no better time like today to unload all of it on International Beer Day. The forecasted 90-plus degrees finally reached us in the chestnut forest and we are prepared and all beered up. The beers in the top photo have not yet gone through a taste test, but these here all come with my 2¢ worth.

Another beer that I had hoped to feature today is one made in Norcia. Produced by monks, Birra Nursia came to my attention thanks to a reader (grazie Nonna T!). The clip below is all about the beer, but another (in english) gives a glimpse into the lives of The Monks of Norcia and this exquisitely beautiful area of Umbria. Link:
