But when one gets beyond mere ignorance and truly decides to explore both Belgium and its wonderful beers, the countryside is bound to beckon you. With a surplus of charming towns and villages not to mention some picturesque monasteries, it is a country that will quietly seduce even the most jaded of travelers. Westvletteren is one such excursion where a quest for some of the world’s greatest beers becomes intermingled with a drive in the countryside that culminates in an age old monastery.
