Beer at the molecular level

Florida State University's Molecular Expressions Web site -- which showcases a large collection of color photographs taken through an optical microscope (commonly referred to as "photo-micro-graphs") -- is a site, and a sight, to behold.

A most interesting feature of the Molecular Expressions site is the BeerShots page. Here you can find photomicrographs of the World's most famous beers, including one of my all-time favorite brews, La Fin Du Monde:

If you want to know more 'bout La Fin Du Monde beer, check out this bit o' text from the label on a bottle in my frig as we, ahem, speak:

"Triple Fermentation 9 percent alcohol. The excellence of triple fermentation through a blend of special yeasts gives this malt beverage LA FIN DU MONDE (The End of The World) an exquisitely robust flavour of exceptional refinement. This 'liquid gold' could only be brewed in the High Lands of America. Brewed and bottled by Unibroue, Chambly, Québec, Canada."

I have never seen La Fin Du Monde beer. Where do you buy it?
