If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 1,700 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).

Holiday by the Loire

Well I had a week away down in the Loire area of France and had some really nice beers, that was not a big surprise as I have done this many times now.  Our Holiday blog

Lets start with a typical French beer

St Omar, Biere d'Or Des Flanderes from France

4.0% gold in colour with a thin head, just a plain ordinary hot weather French beer but not bad. I think I actually bought this one when I got back home.

Les Brasseurs De Gayant (Saint-Omer), Itinéraire des Saveurs Biere Blonde de Garde du Nord from France

6.0% gold in colour with a nice head, a nice slightly sweet aroma and a good Blonde taste, very nice. Another photo taken in England but I did buy it in France.

Saint-Omer (ALDI), Kusterbier from France

4.5% gold in colour with a poor head a very typical French beer, even though RateBeer say it is made in England this was bought on the Loire in France and I do not think it was from home.
