Belgian beer!

So, I think it’s obvious from the photos that we drank quite a lot of beer on this trip and very rarely did we come across something that we didn’t like. Here’s the entire list and where we tried each beer.

L’Estiminet (Bruges)
Leffe bruin

De Garre (Bruges)
De Garre Tripel (house beer),  Gulden Draak

Cambrinus (Bruges)
Duchesse de Bourgogne, Gauloise, Tongerlo Bruin, Petrus Dubbel Bruin

Oud Brugge (Bruges)
Brugse Zot (blonde and bruin – only beer brewed in Bruges)

Smatch Grocery Store (Bruges)
Lindeman’s Framboise, Timmerman’s Peach Lambic

O’Reilly’s Irish Pub (Brussels)
Guinness, Strongbow (what? it counts!)

Delirium Cafe (Brussels)
OMER., Trapistes Rochefort 10, Delirium Tremens (house beer), Floris Kriek Lambic, Buffalo Belgian Stout

Poechenellekelder (Brussels)
Nostradamus, St. Bernardus Abt 12, Forestinne Primoria

Royal Brasserie (Brussels)
Bourgogne de Flanders, Maredsous Bruin

A La Mort Subite (Brussels)
Grimbergen Bruin, Westmalle Dubbel, Ciney Blonde, Mort Subite Framboise (house lambic)

That makes a grand total of 27 different beers!  We paced ourselves well and I’d like to think that all the walking we did counteracted some of the alcohol. :) My second favorite part (drinking beer is the best part, of course) was getting a special glass for each beer.
