After a few hours of walking on the rough trails above the villages, you certainly will feel thirsty and even wouldn?t mind having a bit of something! In Calacuccia and other villages of Niolu, you can sit a café terrace and enjoy the ?exotic? Corsican beer;?exotic?, as it is a beer where chestnut flour is used as a base ingredient, brewed with barley malt; this beer is not just flavoured with chestnut, but chestnut flour is really brewed, and it makes a big proportion of base ingredients (with the sweet crystalline waters coming from the granite mountains). Pietra beer has a unique taste, a bit surprising when you do not know, but really good, this amber coloured beer (picture 2) slightly bitter, full of aroma makes the rest after the walk even more enjoyable.
At least two other beers are brewed in Corsica; Colomba, is a white (wheat based) beer, in the style of the Belgian Hoogarden (a glass of Colomba on the first picture, but the beer in the glass is Serena, the ordinary beer of Corsica, the third one).
Serena beer on the picture 3) in another type of Pietra glass.
Not everybody drinks beer, and you certainly noticed on picture 2, the presence of a Cola bottle: Corsica Cola. I cannot tell you if it is better than more famous brands of cola, but the boys had to enjoy, as there is no other Cola type available in many places of Corsica! At least, when you drink, you support local production.
Ah! A bit of something! If dinner is still far you can try a bruschetta, (picture 4) a sort of antipasto, here in the café of Calacuccia, a big grilled bread slice with ham tomato and molten cheese; that helps for waiting for dinner! Enjoy!
