This week on Beer Sessions, Jimmy checks in with beer importers BR Rolya and Joel Shelton to talk about their latest venture, Shelton Brothers Insider Tours. Alex Zolli, general manager of Spuyten Duyvil bar in Williamsburg, also joined them to talk about Péché Mortel (French for “mortal sin”), the Imperial Coffee Stout from venerable Montreal brewpub, Dieu du Ciel! Each year, the brewery celebrates the release of Péché Mortel by sending a slew of special variants to select beer bars across the globe. This Saturday, March 23, Spuyten Duyvil will host the fifth annual Dieu du Ciel! Péché Mortel Day simultaneously with the fourth annual Trappist Orval Day. Tune in to find out more about Péché Mortel, this spring’s Shelton Brothers Insider Tours to France, Belgium, and Barcelona, and whether or not Montreal bagels are really bagels.
