One of the guys in my tasting group has his house up for sale and had asked the group to come over and help him ’empty’ out his cellar, so that he wouldn’t have to move as much beer.  Well, one of the cool things about the tasting group is no one ever shows up empty handed (even when instructed to).  One thing leads to another, then showing up empty handed turned into ‘Let’s have a Loon (Cantillon) Tasting’.

Cantillon Brewery is a family owned operation going back to the very early 1900’s, who is well known for their lambic style beers.  I personally feel that they are the best lambic maker in the world and would be hard pressed to find anyone who can really argue against that point.  Unfortunately, Cantillon beers (or if you prefer the slang term Loons) do not get mass produced and sent to the states in huge shipments, so finding them is a bit of a task and almost never make an appearance here in WNY ever.

You know that the night is getting out of hand when this happens…
