Locally, there’s a new brand of beer in town. It’s a French-style brew that carries the image and name of our royal namesake … King Louis IX. In case you didn’t know the name of the local statue of St. Louis is The Apotheosis Of Saint Louis. I really don’t know what that means, but it sounds rather mystic and impressive.
There are several gazillion statues of Louie in France, and they all show him mounted on a sturdy stead. (Actually, the most impressive one is our local statue.)
And that’s the one that’s on the bottle of brew.
Now, I usually limit myself to one bottle of brew each year, and I usually drink it on the hottest day of the year. So my bottle will probably chilling in the fridge until July arrives.
