    Order a Duchesse de Bourgogne. Take a sip. Say nothing. Take a second sip. RESERVE JUDGEMENT! Take a third. If you still don't like it, I'll buy you a beer next time I see you.

    Like a library for beer nerds. History buffs will love it to, as it’s got a great story dating back to 1868. You’ll go for a beer after work but stay all night.
