I was just down in St. Augustine. As usual, I got a night to sample the local beer scene. It was a slow night for many businesses when I got out. I had the opportunity to chat with the you bar tender at Rendez Vous. He had a good deal of knowledge but learned some more from me. At the end of the night he said he was very glad I came in.

The find came at JP Henley's. I spent most of the evening there discussing beer with the two gents behind the bar. I announced it was time for me to leave and one said hold and try this. What a wonderful beer he had for me. The beer he had poured for me was Duchesse de Bourgogne. It was very good. He offered to sell me a pint even though they were not to start serving it until this Sat I believe. I could not pass it up. The beer scene in St. Augustine has gone from a just ok to slightly above average in the past 3 years or so.

A taste from the well of the Duchess is a good find indeed!
