This fun night in Benin also came to mind when a friend of mine today pointed me to this following map which includes La Beninoise. (you may have to click on the map to open it to readable size):

Their fresh Double IPA has a tang like citrus peel in the first sniff and sip, followed by a pine sort of bitter toward the finish --v ery nice for a Saturday afternoon on the deck.

Lila p'o means "very foggy" in the native American language Lakota. P'o is an extremely interesting word, phonetically speaking. It's pronounced with an extra puff of air from the lips between the "p" and "o". I'm relaxing after several hours of driving through the fog this morning to pick up my mom from the airport. I can't say the fog was quite as thick as pea soup. Rather, I'd say it was as thick as this pleasant Blarney Brown Ale.

Thanks to Roger and Julie DeSloover for bringing me back this souvenir beer from their recent trip to Florida.
I got the idea and recipe for the cocktail from the blog lifefoodandbeer.com
