After my long, and might I add superb, lunch at Le Cabaretier I went for a bit of a walk through old Lyon and eventually ended up at Place Ennemond Fousseret where there’s a bar called BerThoM. The same chain I drank at in Montpellier. Knowing the selection of beers would be good I headed on in.
I honestly thought I’d pop in for one beer and then continue exploring – that was not the case as BerThoM has a very, very good selection of beers so I was spoiled for choice and settled in.
My first beer was a Belgian Blonde called Maredsous 6° Blonde. It was a run of the mill sweet and strong blonde.
Next I tried a Bavarian Celebrator a very rich, dark, malty dopplebock – this was probably my favorite beer of the day.
Lastly I had a Belgian Trappist Pale Ale, Orval, a sweet, dry beer that I really enjoyed but came in as second choice today by a whisker.
After 3 pints I began the trek back to my hotel a little worse for wear but it was a nice, and sobering, walk to the tram.
