"When Belgians head down to the..." Information & Sources Tip by Krystynn

Information & Sources, Brussels: 94 reviews and 92 photos


When Belgians head down to the local cafés/ pubs, they really take their drink(s) very seriously. If you were to take a good look at a drinks menu, you'd inevitably notice that BEER is the most popular choice here. <i>But...<i>er</i>... which ones are good</i>?

You must excuse me if I'm not too knowledgeable in this area.

Anyway, we were also told by our Belgian friend that Belgium has the best beer in the world (<i>and he swore he was really being objective</i>). So, your stay in Brussels is not quite complete if you don't take time to visit one of the many typical cafes/ pubs here. Do try the local beers of Brussels - Gueuze or fruit beer (cherry beer, raspberry beer, peach beer...<i>et al</i>) or a wonderful Trappist beer made in one of the Abbeys of Belgium. But do be careful when you're drinking a Trappist beer because they tend to be very strong (<i>between 8 and 11.5% of alcohol</i>).

Favorite Dish: BEER! BEER!! BEER!!! ;-)
