Yesterday my topic was an upcoming Fantôme event scheduled at a local watering hole and how the beers were all something I already had in the fridge. I received a comment from Dany Prignon and to me that is just about the coolest thing ever. I started my foray into Fantôme beers back in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. We were going over the saison style and a buddy suggested we get together and try several. He had many different Fantôme bottles and I was instantly hooked. Sure they were outside the BJCP style guidelines at the times and knowledge of how to make a great homebrewed saison was limited because Farmhouse Ales was not published until 2004. One of my dreams is to actually visit Fantôme and meet Dany so to see him make a comment on my blog is awesome. Perhaps one day I will snap a photo of all my Fantôme bottles, but one of my absolute favorite beers from them is Brise-BonBons! Now if I could just find one of their tulip glasses I’d be a happy man!
