we've been to belgium (pre-blog) and it's the female version of that manneken pis that was hard to find! Now I wanna go back to drink the different beers :)


Hmmmm, horse meat.


Hi Kat - The trip is worth it for beer alone!

I love horse meat Billy! You need to give "old Nellie" a try before she hits the glue factory.


I was just going to ask you if you ate horse when I saw you were in Belgium. Just curious if you get any hate email for eating it.

The Galeries Royale are so impressive. Before institutions like libraries, banks and I guess even shopping malls used to be so gorgeous and grand, I can only imagine how long it took to build that!

Love your travel posts! And am quite fond of sour beers, will have to try to find Mort Subite on this side of the Atlantic :)


Hi Kyle - Oh yes.....some are rather interesting.

Hi JS - I've seen Mort Subite Gueuze at Krist, WF, and Bristol Farm's. Word of warning, none of the beer that we've had in both the US and Belgium tasted quite the same in Belgium. It seems that the beer loses sometrhing when it has to travel so far.


I will definitely try it when ever I'm on that side of town.


I hope you get a chance Billy!


I've not had sour beers before, but Bert is more adventurous than I am in that department. :)

At first glance, I thought that was a REAL dog doing his "business"!


Hi CC - That's a great piece of street really fools you from a distance.


really loving this! =) i'm able to re-live my trip to brussels with your posts and pictures and descriptions! thank you! =)

That's so interesting that the beer does not travel well enough that the taste difference is noticeable. Guess I will have to eventually make the trip there to see what the real deal is :) And makes a great case for buying local/west coast beers!


Hi Lynnea - I'm glad you're enjoying the posts.

Hi JS - We found tthe same thing with regards to Beer Lao and even Tsingtao - that brewery is in my wife's hometown.
