Re: New Belgian Beer Forum
Thanks for the site.  I'm going to Belgium on a beer tasting trip in
November for 1 week and appreciate the Belgian beer link.

How did that other fellow put it?  Oh yeah ...."I have to hate you, now!"

No seriously, I've just recently decided I have to go to Belgium and suck
suds before I die.  Please, take notes and get back to us.  :)

Belgium Shelgium. Go to Paris. You can walk along the Seine, visit Les
Deux Magots, Le Select, Le Dome, Les Closeries, Harry's Bar, La
Habana, eat fine food, see the various gardens and museums...... and
*still* drink Belgium beer.

I go to Paris for work a few times each year and always enjoy the
city.  Some of my favorite Belgian beer bars in Paris are Académie de
la Bière, Au Trappiste, Bouillon Racine and La Gueuze.  I also like
the Frog and Rosbif, one of Paris' only microbreweries, and The
Bombardier if you are looking for a great English pub.

I'll be there in two weeks and I'll copy these places down and see if
I can find them.

Thanks

Here's some addresses listed in order of how I recommend the bars.  Of
course I'm a Belgian beer fan followed by English ale with an
appreciation so micro-breweries so my recommendation is geared
accordingly.

Académie de la Bière - 88-bis Boulevard de Port-Royal   (great
selection of Belgian beers!)
Au Trappiste - 4 Rue St Denis  (Very good selection of Belgian beers,
very good food)
Frog & Rosbif - 116 Rue St Denis
La Gueuze - 19 rue Soufflot
Bombardier - 2, Place du Pantheon

Also, here's a link to a very good Paris beer guide:

Enjoy!

I like porters and stouts but whenever I travel I like to try the
local foods, wines and beers. You never know what you are going to
find. Key West has Key West Sunset lager and ale, Kalick, and Hatuay.
Or at least they used to have Hatuay. And there is Kelley's
microbrewery which has a good Harvest Red. And there were several good
beers in Paris most of which turned out to be Belgium. (And I like to
sip a pastis at night and see how long it takes to finish).

The saddest thing is to watch someone traveling away from home and
ordering what they normally drink, from Bud Light to even an exotic
German brew. PArt of the fun of traveling is finding new things.

Thanks, again

Of
beers,
good

I agree. It is always better to try the local beverages and cuisine
when on holiday.

Or he could go to beautiful Brugge (Venice of the North), Gent (City
of the Counts), Antwerp (Antwerp!) or Brussels to eat fine food and
see the various gardens and museums while drinking French wine only to
flush it all down with local *Belgian* brews. But of course, Belgium
is boring if you haven't been there to form your own opinion. No doubt
about that.

Any more suggestions?  Here's the itinerary I have booked so far and
I'm looking for ideas on where to spend the 3 remaining open nights of
my trip.

Arrive Friday, November 19th – overnight in Brussels

Saturday, November 20th – overnight in Brussels

Sunday, November 21st – OPEN

Monday, November 22nd – OPEN

Tuesday, November 23rd - OPEN

Wednesday, November 24th – overnight in Brugge

Thursday, November 25th – overnight in Brugge

Friday, November 26th – overnight in Brussels

Saturday, November 27th – depart for USA

 

I was thinking about daytrips to a few cities during the trip such as
Leuven, Antwerp, Namur, Tournai and/or Ghent during the trip.  I’ve
been in Brugge and Brussels twice before and am staying in both mainly
to visit the various beer cafes in each city.  Any other suggestions
as to where I might want to spend the open nights on my itinerary or
for additional cities to see?  I’ll be traveling through the country
by train.

Regards,
Dave

Yes indeed, he could. IF he's prepared to pay between 2.5x up till 6x the
price they ask for the beers in their country of origin. LOL.
