Beer Post: Chimay Première
This is just a quickie for any of you who like beer. Chimay makes some great trappist ales. I like both of the ones I've had, the red (Première) and the blue (Grande Réserve). I like the blue a bit more, it's darker, richer and a bit bitter. And a bit more expensive. But the red is also very good, just a bit lighter in taste, color and alcohol content. Plus it's also what I happened to buy most recently. They go great with anything grilled or seared like burgers, steaks or sausages, but are also light enough (in flavor, they run 7-10% alcohol) to have with chicken or pork. So go out and get a bottle or two, if you like beer chances are you will like this.
