Horror / fantasy themed beer bottles.
The drinks are on TVTA!
And it’s never too early to start celebrating Halloween is it? September being the warm-up to my favourite ghoulish month? Add a beer or two, and all is good 🙂
Without further ado, here are the beer bottles I’ve saved since the beginning of the year. There are 13 of them, and they all feature a horror or fantasy theme.
La Bière Du Demon / Demon Beer. France. 12%. A design to induce nightmares, and coming in at 12% this is the strongest of the bunch and not to be taken lightly. A diobolical pleasure.
Bière du Corbeau / Crow Beer. France. 9%. An impressive design and a strong beer. I enjoyed this one.
La Chouffe. Belgium. 8%. I love this beer so much. It’s strong, blonde, and tasty, and with a delightful design of a gnome riding a unicycle. I often buy this beer, and would rate it among the best of Belgium blondes. I also dedicate this beer to my good WP blog buddy Be Kitschig 🙂 If you like a bit of kitsch in your life (and who doesn’t?!) then check out that link.
Bonus: also comes with cool bottle cap!
La Cuvée des Trolls / Troll Beer. Belgium. 7%. A tasty one as I recall, and another cool fantasy design.
Slash Origin. France. 7.5%. This design rocks. Who’s gonna argue with a badass tattooed unicorn? Not me. A decent tasting beer though not one of my favourites of the bunch.
Black. France. 6%. Another unicorn themed beer. Simple design. Decent taste, but like the unicorn themed one above it… not a favourite. Sorry unicorns.
Belzebuth. France. 4.5%. A fun design and name, but tastewise not on my favourites list.
Don’t Panic. France. 6.5%. Completely bizarre design and name. I like just how leftfield this is. And not a bad tasting beer.
Judas. Belgium. 8.5%. A serious beer. With a simple design. But that all-important name ‘Judas’ sure packs a punch. So does the beer. In second place as strongest – 8.5% – sink a few of these and you might easily forget your loyalties.
Rince Cochon / Pig Rinse. Belgium & France. 7.5%. Fun, fun, fun! I was more than happy to take a rinse. A strong beer, yet deceptive, as it’s a red and the fruity flavours soften the blow. Excellent for helping to keep one’s spirits up during a pandemic. Oink.
Foudroyante. Belgium. 3.5%. A most enjoyable fruity tipple. Plus skull design = win!
Pecheresse / Sinner. Belgium. 2.5%. Not strong at all, but a simply delicious fruity red. In fact, I even added black pepper to another I tried, as it reminded me of a beer called Frulli which is often sprinkled with pepper to counter the fruit. As for the Art Nouveau style ‘sinner’ design, it’s quite beautiful, and for my sins… I recall enjoying a fair few of these during lockdown.
La Bête / The Beast. France. 8%. Strong taste and a wicked design. A decent beer.
… drumroll …
