As I am sure you are well aware, it turns out that this Saturday is going to be Judgement Day. "O.K." you are saying, "but where does The Bayou fit into this whole end times thing?"
Well, if you, like much of our staff, could use earning a few extra brownie points during these last few days, we have got your back. We have not 1, not 2 but 11 different Trappist beers from 5 of the 7 Trappist breweries!
Now, I'm not saying that drinking lots of Trappist beers will guarantee your Rapture, but it can't hurt.
So, hurry on in an try a beer from Orval (pictured on the left), Chimay, Rochfort, La Trappe (Konnigshoven) and Westmalle.
You only have 3 days to consume enough Trappist beers to offset all your bad deeds from the last 21+ years.
We have a backup plan
O.K., for the sake of argument, lets say that your bad deeds turn out to be simply too much for even trappist beer to overcome. Well, being ones who remember our Boy Scout training, we at The Bayou have a backup plan. Lucifer!
Yes, if you find yourself stuck on earth on the 22nd we have stocked up on Lucifer.
Now, while drinking Lucifer won't give you the brownie points that the Trappist beers will, we feel that it just might help you get on the dark ones good side and should lighten your pain in the days to come.
Regardless it is a great beer to help forget the bad things to come and at only $6.66 it is a great deal!
Now, I hear you asking yourself, "But who will be at The Bayou to pour these beers on the 22nd? All those wonderful employees are sure to be raptured!" Au contraire, I won't name names but there are a few of us for whom the Trappist monks couldn't possibly brew enough beer to save. So that's good news for you! We will be open promptly at 5:00 pm on the 21st and 22nd to start cracking open the Lucifers.
Mikkeller's Funky e*star is a wild fermented Belgian ale brewed in a similar vein as their It's Alive.
Compared to the It's Alive the Funky e*star is higher in alcohol and fuller in body.
If you are a fan of the wild ales then this one should be on your list. We only received 72 bottles so don't wait too long.
If you have had many Mikkeller beers then you know one thing. These guys are not afraid of experimenting.
This beer, adorned with a strip of bacon on the label, is brewed using the same recipe as their Beer Geek Breakfast Stout but with all the base malt replaced with smoked malt.
Only 4 pallets of this beer came into the US so we are quite lucky to have gotten our hands on the miniscule 5 cases we received. Staff is likely to drink this one down quickly so don't say I didn't warn you.
