Sipping free draft Duvel at Metropolitan Coffeehouse and Wine Bar
Wednesday night, Amie and I headed over to Metropolitan Coffeehouse and Wine Bar (902 S. Charles St.) for some post-dinner drinks.
We ran into some friends at a table outside, who told us there was a tasting of the new Duvel Green, a draft beer, going on.
They had lovely beer glasses with the Duvel logo on them (pictured), and told us even though the tasting was technically only supposed to be using small glasses, if you sweet-talked the waitress, she might bring you some Duvel Green in big glasses instead.
We did just that, and our server brought us two Duvel Green "tastings."
Duvel Green is lighter, crisper and has less alcohol per volume than to the Duvel I'm used to drinking out of the bottle. It was good stuff ...
The owner, Bruce Dorsey, also came out with a rubber Duvel coaster thingy. You can see it in the middle of the photo. I'm not sure exactly what the heck it's called. But I see them all the time on top of bars.
I also discovered that I've been pronouncing the name of the beer wrong. According to the Duvel rep, it's pronounced Doo-vle, not Doo-velle.
Either way, I thought it was dee-licious.
