A little late on the link, but the Madison Beer Review is going to be posting a series on French beers during the tour. I think its a great idea, and a good project for trying new beers during the tour. I’m not sure how available these beers will be in Philly, but I hope to find out.

Last night I enjoyed the old standby, Golden Monkey, during a briefly exciting time trial. I say briefly, because by the time that Feillu crossed the line, the winners had long been determined. Not nearly as exciting as stage 3, with Frischkorn inches away from a US win. Go USA!
