Gabriel Dulong of Bière Boréale & I have a conversation about how he coped with 2020, his 1st brews, how he became a brewer, if he ever listened to metal, his 1st show, IPA du Nord-Est, freedom from flagships, keeping the beer fresh, collabs & his hangover cure. Throughout this interview, we were enjoying Bière Boréale x Messorem Bracitorium 's "Tourbillon Polaire" the DDH Double IPA. This gorgeous brew poured out with a milky hazy veil, smashed juicy tropical fruits such as mangoes & pineapple on the nose, ripped a slightly sweet, fruity, dank, delicately boozy & enjoyable hop burn on the finish. It clocked in with a 8.6% ABV.

Chris Kells & Mihaela Petrescu & I have a conversation about how they coped with 2020, their 1st brews, joining the Vox&Hops Crew, working on Brewtal North America & if they could create their own unique collab for themselves. Throughout tonight's hang I enjoyed 2 very special brews: Ras L'Bock x Microbrasserie À la Fût 's "L'Anse de Mékinac" & Microbrasserie À la Fût x Ras L'Bock 's "Rouge de L'Anse". This is a unique Collab. Both breweries blended their own version of a Flanders Red with Wild Cherries with the others & then aged the results in Oak Barrels. "L'Anse de Mékinac" pours out with a deep red orange veil, slaps earthy oak on the nose, rips a tart acidic fruity finish & clocks in with a 6.6% ABV. "Rouge de L'Anse" pours out with a cloudy orange veil, radiates oak laced cherries on the nose, smashes a tart smooth funky finish & clocks in with a 5.4% ABV.
