Unibroue La Fin Du Monde

WARNING!!! THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS TO THE AMC SERIES “THE WALKING DEAD”!!!!!

 

A few weeks ago Silvio came up with a great idea. We are both huge fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead. He suggested that we do a beer brainstorm during the season finale with a themed beer. He did some research and we decided to go with Unibroue Brewery’s La Fin Du Monde (Translated “The End of the World”). Thanks Silvio for coming up with a cool concept! Below you’ll find our chat which occurred live during the finale which aired last night.

@silvio_marcacci: Brains….
@silvio_marcacci: Brains…..
@Lost_in_Beer: Excited? I am!
@silvio_marcacci: Seriously. I love this show.
@Lost_in_Beer: If we have to wait until Oct 2011 for season 2, I’m going to flip.
@silvio_marcacci: The shootout at the camp at the end of the episode when they returned from Atlanta is perhaps the best single zombie fight scene I’ve ever seen

Show starting

@silvio_marcacci: Here we go!
@Lost_in_Beer: Rock and roll
@silvio_marcacci: Great opening scene
@silvio_marcacci: Love how they tied it together
@Lost_in_Beer: They definitely [previously] made his buddy out to be more of a bad guy
@Lost_in_Beer: Looks like he tried to save him
@silvio_marcacci: He defiitely thought he was dead, though
@silvio_marcacci: I think this guy at the CDC is going to try and infect them with zombie virus to get fresh samples.
@Lost_in_Beer: yeah, based on the preview last week he infects the blond since he lost his “fresh” samples last show.

@silvio_marcacci: Glad to see all the smells pull through to the flavor

Commercial break over

@Lost_in_Beer: This blonde chic is getting sick rather slow
@silvio_marcacci: I don’t think the doctor poisioned her

The Dr shows video of the brain MRI

@Lost_in_Beer: This must be an MRI of the virus infecting someone?
@silvio_marcacci: Did you hear that last line?
@Lost_in_Beer: decontamination
@silvio_marcacci: Whole place is probably set to blow up

Commercial break

@Lost_in_Beer: Hey, did you buy a six-pack of La Fin Du Monde or the big 750ml?
@silvio_marcacci: No, just one bottle, you?
@Lost_in_Beer: 750, More than enough at 9%

Commercial break over

@Lost_in_Beer: Here we go…
@Lost_in_Beer: The characters are asking the same thing…WTF does decontamination mean?
@Lost_in_Beer: If you’re right, they are going to find explosives
@Lost_in_Beer: [a moment later, no explosives found] I have no idea where this Fing episode is going…
@silvio_marcacci: I think he’s going to kill himself

Dr. reveals that the CDC will explode when backup power is exhausted.

@silvio_marcacci: Knew it
@Lost_in_Beer: yup. Makes sense…it’s the friggin CDC. How the crap are they gonna get out of this one?

  1. Hmmm. I’ve never see that show, but I have tried that beer. Unibroue is one of my favorite breweries. I pretty much approach each beer (unfairly) skeptical and they always deliver. I don’t think they get enough recognition for their beer overall either.

    One thing I’ve notice about them too is that they sure know how to carbonate their brews. Wow!

    Talk to you later.

    1. You MUST watch the Walking Dead series Rob. Absolutely the best show on TV. Although season 1 is over, you should be able to get all 6 episodes on demand for free.

      -Lost

  2. Unibroue have to be one of my favourite breweries – everything I have had from them has been very good. Even the Ephemere which I was very skeptical about at the time.
