After a while, it gets boring naming your French and Belgian beers after types of mice, so I thought I'd name this one after one of my favorite mice in literature. This is a Belgian blond that is going to be brewed for the Brewer's Heritage Festival on June 11th and 12th in Forrest Park. Last year's ale went very quickly and so I hope this one will be just as popular.
