FLAVOURTOWN OLYMPICS: First we beat the Swiss, then we eat fondue!

So, Canada kicks off the men’s hockey tournament against the Swiss tomorrow, but me, I’m still celebrating after we kicked their ass in mixed doubles curling. I was like hurry, hurry, hard all the way home, big bad broseph!!!!

So now we’re hanging out at Bier Markt, this funky Euro craft beer joint on King Street West. Man, this place has everything: weiner schnitzel, smoked gouda, even some duck wings, bro! But you know I’m here for one reason only. We already beat the Swiss, and now it’s time for fondue:

They call this one The Big Cheese, and it’s cheesier than that upcoming Poison reunion tour, bro! You’ve got Raclette, you’ve got Emmental and some white wine, along with potatoes, pretzels and baguette bread for dipping. The only thing missing was an ice cold brewski–oh, wait!!!

Now, I don’t always drink beer from Vancouver, but when I do, I prefer Lions Winter Ale. This seasonal slobberknocker looks like a red beer, but it’s got this totally chocolately taste that would make Count Chocula’s head spin. Man, Team Canada could probably slam a few of these…and still beat the Swiss tomorrow, bro!!!
