Beerz, in Cherbourg has only been open a month, but you’d never know it. The owner, Christele Zamprogno has created a wonderful welcoming celebration of world beers.
Michelle spotted this oasis to beer (I was single-mindedly marching us towards a brewpub I had spotted earlier when we had a mid morning coffee).
Black Ale India Stout at 8% was the standout beer (we tried a few between us), from La Debauche. Light in taste, and texture, but dark of colour. Easy drinking stout (4.25/5). Michelle absolutely loved this one, so much so we bought two home.
Feeling a bit peckish, we decided that cheese and bread would be a very good idea (meat was also available).
There was a small tap list and a range of beers available to drink in store, and as you can see a vast range of beers to buy to take away.
Neatly arranged by style, there were also some local ciders available, I tried a nice light 4% one from Normandy. However, all good things must come to an end (we easily spent three hours in there, during which time a steady stream of beer enthusiasts came and went).
So, we bid farewell to Christele and wished her all the best for the future. If you are in the Cherbourg area in the future, pop in, you certainly won’t regret it.
