French-Style Biere de Garde Beer

French-Style Biere de Garde is a beer that originates from the French region of Nord-Pas-de-Calais. The style is characterized by a malty, caramel flavour and a somewhat sweet finish. French-Style Biere de Garde is usually amber or copper in colour and has moderate alcohol content.

The beer is typically bottle-conditioned, meaning that it undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle. When pouring the beer, be sure to leave some sediment at the bottom of the bottle. French-Style Biere de Garde pairs well with food and is often served with French cuisine.
