Beertography of the Day - Monday August 29th
Today's photo comes to us from Eric San Juan and features La Trappe Isid'or from the Netherlands. Eric took this shot at a quiet spot on the Jersey Shore.
Here's a little info about the beer taken from the La Trappe website:
In 2009, it has been 125 years since friar Isidorus Laaber hesitantly, with successes and setbacks, started what is now a stunning product. To commemorate this fact, we are releasing a special-occasion beer for the international market in this jubilee year. It is obvious that the beer will carry the name of our first brewing master. It is a homage to this simple friar with his golden hands, who made our brewery, and thus also our monastery, famous.
As always, part of the profits of La Trappe will go to the monasteries in Indonesia and Uganda, which were set up by Koningshoeven. The profit of La Trappe Isid’or will go entirely to the co-friars in Uganda. Since they fled the violence in Kenya in 2008, they have had to start from scratch in Uganda. With the profit of La Trappe Isid’or, the community there will be able to build a new monastery and find a new source of income.
La Trappe Isid’or is a lightly sweet amber beer with a hint of caramel. The beer tastes softly bitter and has a fruity aftertaste. La Trappe Isid’or is brewed with the self-cultivated Perle hop.
7,5% alcohol, pouring temperature 10-14 ºC

Don't forget, I'll be posting 1 photo submission per day followed by a poll at end of the week to determine everyone's favorite. That photo will then be crowned Beertography of the Week.
