French Fries, French Toast and ... French Beer?!

I know what your thinking, most people think of Red Wine and Champagne when they think of French libations. What most people don't know is that they also make delicious beer. I am not typically a beer drinker. I prefer a glass of Red wine with dinner but there are occasions when a nice cold beer sounds better. My favorite is Fischer beer, made in France. I knew this beer was going to be something special when my German DH introduced me to this French beer (for those of you that know my DH, I am sure you are as surprised as I was!). I think he was determined to find an alcoholic beverage that I liked that wouldn't turn my teeth purple.

They make an Amber and a Blonde. Both come in a traditional flip-top bottle that makes drinking this beer even more fun! (I prefer the Amber but both have much more flavor then most U.S. beers)

This beer is not always easy to find but I have been able to enjoy it at Sun Dried Tomato Cafe in Laguna Beach, CA and purchase it at The Wine Pavillion in Lake Forest, CA.

So, what is your favorite beer?!

Pretty much all beers are better than the American beers, but I can say may favorite beers are my husband's home brews! I love his hard cider and his oatmeal stout...and I don't typically even drink beer. Other than the home brews, I found that Chimay is pretty tasty too. If we run across the French beer, we'll have to try it out. My husband loves trying different beers.

You are another person who has now told me about Chimay. I am going to have to try it. Thanks for the tip. A close 2nd for my fave beers is Asahi. A Japanese beer you will soon become well acquainted with. :)

And with their new and improved menu it is even better now!!! Mmmmm.

Hi, thanks for stopping by and sorry I have been so slow on blogging. :(
