It’s been a while since I’ve been in Stockholm, and it is very much on my “to go” list for this year. When I do go, I will check in to the attractive Nobis Hotel and will eat at Frantzen/Lindeberg which, I am told, is a wonderful experience. The food is excellent, says my friend who dined there this week, but it is their knowledge of wine and beer – and even their ability to make great beer pairings – which impressed him.
What blew his socks off was their magical ability to produce a bottle of aged L’Abbe de Saint Bon-Chien, one of the rarest beers around. And if you are not familiar with this unfiltered, unpasteurized, limited-edition ale brewed by Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes in Switzerland, for about $35 a bottle you should indulge. It’s an experience in itself.
And speaking of experiences, check out the video on F/L’s website..it’s pretty great too.
