Beyond Banking and Chocolate...Beer from Switzerland...La Meule

We all tend to associate countries with their main activities, for Switzerland it would be banking, chocolate and pharmaceuticals.

Add to this list a different kind of beer, La Meule, a blond beer infused with sage.Lameule

It is brought to us by La Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes .

Their US distributor describes these swiss beers as "flavorful top-fermenting beers, brewed according to ancestral accounts of master craftsmen brewers. Double Fermented before bottling, they are unfiltered and unpasteurized to preserve their flavors and smoothness."

A couple of food paring ideas would be to "try La Meule with poultry in a tarragon sauce. Salty hard cheeses or just good old fried fish do the job just as well."

Now I need to put my hands on one of these and taste it first hand.
