Voll Damm

This is probably certainly my preferred non belgian beer.

In 1871 when the Franc-Prussian War starts August Kuentzmann Damm settled down in Barcelona, once there he decided to live on which better knew to do: produce artisan Strasbourg beer. Years later, on 1876, he founded the first factory of Damm Beers. My favourite beers on flickr.

Beer #3 - Kasteel bier

It's very difficult to continue the "beer" series without being very repetitive.
With three photos only, my composition abilities are almost dried.
This time I took a diferent aproach to this great --perhaps my very favourite- beer

Kasteel bier made by Brouwerij Brasserie it's a dangerous (11% ABV but taste as 8%) Belgian-style ale ... it has a shelf life of several years. The castle of the label is known as The Castle of Ingelmunster


Tarantula the brand-new ride of Parque de Atracciones Madrid was inaugurated last Saturday. Thanks to I was one of the few that enjoyed some rides before the official opening.

Typical still live photo, dont' like it too much, very easy ...

ufff!!! this was very dificult, one hand for the bottle and the other in the camera.

Brugs is a Belgian White beer made of a particular blend of pure wheat, hops, orange peel and coriander. These ingredients give it a special refreshing taste that it's perfect for summer time. The light yellow opaqueness is because it is not filtered.

Beer - Duvel

Beer is one of my other passions, yesterday while I was watching the extras of the DVD of Alien --another passion, too much information about me for only one post- I realized how much photogenic beer glasses are.

In 1871 Jean-LĂ©onard Moortgat set up the Moortgat brewery at Breendonk (Belgium). After the first world war the son of the founder wanted to brew a Belgian beer similar to British ale. He travelled to Scotland and after overcome a lot of hardships he finally managed to get a jar of yeast on which his success would be based. Today yeast from the original culture is still used. The people that first tried the brew, described the beer as 'nen echten duvel' (a real devil). Duvel means devil in dutch
