This morning on Beer for Breakfast Alicia and I were joined by the witty and wry owner of Laughing Monk Brewing, Andrew Casteel, for a tasting and a semi-formal education on all things Belgian.
San Francisco’s Laughing Monk Brewing specializes in Belgium style beers with a California twist, as Andrew aimed to marry his passion for Belgian beers with his California heritage. The result was Laughing Monk, which will celebrate its second anniversary later this month with a special release of their Second Gospel Golden Strong Ale. Today’s tasting, however, highlighted a variety of beers they specialize in including Sainted Ladies Strawberry Milkshake IPA, the Third Cycle Belgian Tripel, and their Holy Ghost Pilsner.
