I invited three of my oldest friends to be my guests on this month's Thirsty Thursday LIVE!!! One of my very first friends, Chris Flint, who I met in kindergarten and was in my first band Nixtasm. Vince Berardinucci, who I met in high school and I went to my first concerts with, drank my first beers with & discovered metal with. And finally, James Arsenian, the vocalist of Endast, who taught me a lot when I first started playing shows downtown in the early years of 3 Mile Scream. No topic was off the table & we had a sick time indeed!! Throughout this hang, I enjoyed Ras L'Bock x Boire Grand - WJW Saucissier Ahuntsic's "Sainte-Justine". This non-alcoholic brew was created to give back to CHU Sainte-Justine. This killer n/a Berliner Weisse was brewed with pineapple & lime. It was delicious & ultra refreshing! I followed up with L'Apothicaire x Augury's "Illusive Golden Ale" which was brewed as a part of Brewtal North America. This Belgian Golden Ale was hopped with a mixture of traditional & new world hops. This killer brew was slightly sweet, crisp & insanely drinkable. I finished up with Le Fermentor x The Agonist's "Brew As My Guide" which was brewed as a part of Brewtal North America. This 7% DDH IPA was ultra crushable & had an enjoyable resinous finish.  Make sure to check out Vox&Hops' Brewtal Awakenings Playlist which has been curated by the Metal Architect Jerry Monk himself on either Spotify or Apple Music.

Chris Kells & Mihaela Petrescu & I have a conversation about how they coped with 2020, their 1st brews, joining the Vox&Hops Crew, working on Brewtal North America & if they could create their own unique collab for themselves. Throughout tonight's hang I enjoyed 2 very special brews: Ras L'Bock x Microbrasserie À la Fût 's "L'Anse de Mékinac" & Microbrasserie À la Fût x Ras L'Bock 's "Rouge de L'Anse". This is a unique Collab. Both breweries blended their own version of a Flanders Red with Wild Cherries with the others & then aged the results in Oak Barrels. "L'Anse de Mékinac" pours out with a deep red orange veil, slaps earthy oak on the nose, rips a tart acidic fruity finish & clocks in with a 6.6% ABV. "Rouge de L'Anse" pours out with a cloudy orange veil, radiates oak laced cherries on the nose, smashes a tart smooth funky finish & clocks in with a 5.4% ABV.
