Weyerbacher Merry Monks’ Takes Honors Again!
Today’s Philadelphia Inquirer (June 2, 2011) has 2, yes 2 Weyerbacher Beers getting top 5 honors out of 38 regional beers tasted. The blind tasting was conducted by Inquirer Restaurant Critic Craig LaBan with a panel of 8 tasters including food critics, wine and beer writers, brewers and beer geeks alike. Beers were divided into two categories: classic beers and new beers.
Weyerbacher Merry Monks’ place number 3 in classic beers showing “…a mastery of Belgian style brewing”. LaBan added its “…at once creamy, pruney sweet, and potent, stoking big boozy lusciousness”.
Weyerbacher Blasphemy placed number 5 in the new beers category. This Belgian-style Quadruppel aged in bourbon barrels, was just brought back by the brewery after a 3 year hiatus, due to intense lobbying by beer fans. Available right now, for a limited time in 750ml Cork n Cage bottles.
