GOLD OR OR?
Peter's parents live on the east coast of Canada right on a big lake called the Bras d'Or. There are quite a few towns around the lake with French names, but pronounced in English; L'Ardoise (Lordways); Main a Dieu (Manadoo); and Louisbourg (Loose Berg). The problem was that we had a beer with a french name already, so we were stumped. Anyway, we spent weeks agonizing over what we were going to call our British Golden Ale until we realized that "Or" is French for gold, and then we were like "oh."
