" Belgian beers!" Top 5 Page for this destination Belgium Local Custom Tip by belgianchocolate

Belgium Local Customs: 245 reviews and 238 photos


Belgian beers have got a good reputation?
True , but I can asure you that the best beers aren't
for export. There are still a lot of breweries
that don't produce that much. Some breweries
owned by a family or one singel passioned

Anyway , I don't know that much about beer.
And most of the beers , I don't like them either.
But I do love fruit beers. (crickets and peaches).
'Lindemans' is my favorite 'Pecheresse and Kriek'.
Give it a go....I also love cooking with them.
Try to find out what you like.

Some of the beers can't be produced
anywhere else...They need a certain bacterium
to start the process of fermentation etc...

On my Brussels page you will find some great
tips. One restaurant 'restobieres' uses beer in
almost all of their dishes and the best 'kriek'
can be found 'A LA BECASSE'.
