Default Unibroue!

I am heading to Fermont, Quebec for supper tonight (Best Pizza Ever at Zonix Bar) and a Hoegaarden (can't buy it here in this town). While I am there, I am gonna hit up the grocery store and pick up some Unibroue Beer. Still not sure which one I am gonna pick up, hopefully they have a sampler pack, because I want to try them all. I have had Fin Du Monde and Ephemere Pommes (and the Raspberry version of this) and they were all good. Here are the links to their beer styles.

Blanche du Chambly

Fin Du Monde

Trois Pistoles

Don De Dieu

Ephemere Pommes

Seigneuriale

Chambly Noire

Maudite

The SWMBO is gonna be pissed when we get there and I start filling shopping carts up with beer...lol

Has anyone tried any of these beers? Comments?

You can't go wrong with any of those. Good finding them all though!

Every store in Quebec will have pretty well all of them. The grocery store in Fermont has a full section of shelves dedicated to Unibroue, then another section dedicated to everything else.

Anyone from the area know how to properly pronounce Unibroue? I've been wondering about this for a while.

Uni-brew I would assume.

Don De Dieu is in my top 5 favs of all time (although I haven't tried Trois Pistoles yet and I think I may like it too). I had a bottle of Don in my fridge that I didn't know about for over a year, it was perfection (and even more smooth and rich than what it tastes like relatively young).

I saw the reps from Unibroue at a beer festival here in Chicago, they pronounced it "Oo-knee-brew." I've seen many festival representatives who are often less informed about the beer than half the attendees, so take that with a grain of salt.

I'm a big fan of the Maudite and the Trois Pistoles. La Fin Du Monde is really good too, but you've had that before.

I have a question. I've drank Fin du Monde and it was really good. I kept the bottles for hombrewing but I noticed the top has a thread like its a screw-top. Of course, they condition in the bottle so I think this can't be true. Am I safe using the bottles for my homebrewing? Oh, by the way, both Fin du Monde and Trois Pistoles are very good.

It's true, the Unibroue bottles are screw-top. I didn't notice until i had already shed their labels and the annoyingly hard to get off gold foil. You can use screw-tops for bottling, but you risk not getting a good seal. Better off using the pop tops.

All the Unibroue Beers are top notch. I had the opportunity to try all of them side by side at a brewfest and they all rock. My favorites are is the fin du monde and Don de dieu, but SWMBO loves Ephemere and Blanche de Chambly. Buy them all if you can get them or try to make a clone. Speaking of, does anybody have any good clone recipes for any of these?????????
