A Taste of Quebec in Philadelphia – Unibroue Beer Brunch at Local 44

In Philadelphia, Wine and Beverage by Daryl & Mindi Hirsch2 Comments

We don’t know what came first – our love for Quebec or our love for Unibroue beer. In many ways, the two are intertwined. We even have a favorite pub in Montreal that serves Unibroue beer on tap. We love the intense flavors created by the brewery’s traditional yet innovative bottle fermentation process. Fruity, spicy and complex all at the same time, Unibroue beer packs a flavorful wallop in each and every bottle.

Noord Eetcafe – Going Dutch in Philadelphia

Until recently, Philadelphia was behind on this culinary curve. Not so any more, as Chef Joncarl Lachman has brought the Netherlands to the city of brotherly love with his relatively new Noord Eetcafe.
