Here at Pele Lepew we are all abuzz with the World Cup kicking off tomorrow. No, really. We started drinking already.
But we’re not just drunks with a love for futbol. We are also connoisseurs of the starch and saccharification enzymes that are derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat.
That’s fancy for beer.
Enough of that.
Here’s is what we recommend for tomorrow’s kick off between host Brazil and Croatia.
Beer: St. Bernardus Abt12- Ideal in that Catholicism rules the country and that 130 foot Jesus statue told me he likes it too.
Brewer: Brouwerij St. Bernardus NV
Style: Quadrupel (or Quad)- Just like the Brazilian squad is to many upcoming opponents, this beverage is intended to be stronger than a Tripel, so the ABV (alcohol by volume) strength will be 10% or more (think Belgian Strong Ale with a shot of Hulk).
And like Brazilian women, this blend may refer to an especially strong style of dark ale, with a characteristic spicy, ripe fruit flavor.
Man, I’m thirsty.
