From left to right:
Brasserie Au Baron – Saison Saint Médard
Amber Bière de Garde, 7% ABV
Brasserie d’Annoeullin – Lepers 8
Brasserie du Caou – Kaou’ët Brune
Biere Brune, 7% ABV
Brasserie du Caou – Kaou’ët Triple
Belgian Triple, 8.5% ABV
And a bottle of sweet farmhouse cider, just for good measure.
