While walking around the farmhouse brewery built by Sidy Hannsen’s grandfather, I stumbled upon this pile of half-labelled Geuze.

Hannsen’s Artisanaal has two employees: John and Sidy Hanssen.  These bottles are hand-labelled, the beer is hand-bottled and hand-made.  A lot of hands have been all over this place.  By the looks of it, a machine hasn’t ever been introduced to this place.

That’s the kind of beer I dream of, the kind of beer I defend whole-heartedly and the kind of beer producers you should be supporting.  Now, go forth into your weekend and drink the good juice. That’s my Friday soapbox.

    I, sir, shall heed your charge, as I sally forth into the world of Fort Collins micro-breweries and imbibe their non-corporate libations and drink to your good name. Cheerio.
