Biere de la Muese
« on: February 12, 2011, 05:53:10 PM »
I spent last week in France for my mother in law's funeral  After everybody went home or to bed my wife and I sat in the kitchen talking and of course drinking.  I brought out a  6 pack of Jenlain Ambree I had in the cellar and as we drank it she told me that it reminded her of the "biere de la Meuse"(beer of the Meuse River) that her father drank back in the 60's and 70's.  It came in wooden crates and the bottles had porcelain flip tops.  I suggested to her that it was probably Belgian since the Meuse is one of the most important rivers in Belgium but she was pretty sure it was a French beer.  Has anybody ever heard of this beer?
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Thanks.  So she's not crazy, it was a French beer. 
Her family lived on a farm and someone would deliver crates of the beer along with crates of lemonade for the kids.

I'll be going to my good friend the beer shop owner today to pick up a fresh supply and will see if he's heard of it and if it's still in production.
