SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Unibroue of Québec, Canada, has been brewing our beer of the week since 1992. Maudite (translates to "the damned one") is a Belgiun-style amber with a legend fit for this Halloween weekend.

Pictured on the label of Maudite are a group of men in a canoe and the devil with his arms crossed. As the legend goes, the men made a deal with the devil to make it home for Christmas. As they were led home through the air led by Satan himself in their flying canoes, one man renounced the deal, and they fell to their deaths.

Drinkers will experience a malty, nutty taste from the rich and warming brew. And a rich caramelly scent will meet the nose.

"Pair this one with red meats or light chocolate deserts," said Doug Albernasky of John's Grocery, 401 E. Market St.

I would suggest paIring this great fall beer with S'mores, a camp fire, and scary stories.
