This week on PW online: Big Bottle Mix-A-Six

With at 2 to 3 least holiday parties to attend this month-= you will be responsible for a couple of host gift bottles. Why should it be wine? This week I pick 6 big bottles o' beer- some classics, some novelty, to bring to that holiday party.


  1. Four out of six Shangys beer ! Good choices Suzz :)

  2. I thought it was important to mention that anyone looking for the Gouden Carolus Grand Cru of the Emperor might have trouble finding it because the American bottles of it began using the beer's original name Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van De Keizer with the 2008 editions. There are also two versions. There is the Blauw/Blue version that has the name of the beer on a blue stripe, which is the original version; and a Rood/Red version with the name on a red stripe, but this is a blonde version of the beer brewed for the 10th anniversary of the original and, if you ask my opinion, is interesting but nowhere near as good as the original.
