I will be visiting Belgium and the Netherlands later this year

I will be spending two weeks visiting the following cities:

Amsterdam
Brussels
Middelburg
Brugge
Gent

Any locals like to meet for a drink, coffee or perhaps dinner?

I will privately provided dates etc.

I’m in the “Antwerpen” area, if you are passing there i will be happy to introduce you to one off the best beers in the world :wink:

I also make some decent spinach pastas and have a mountain bike background.

I think Gent is the closet I get.

Normally, I would make a detour to meet with a local, but I will be on an organized bike tour. The only full days I have will be before the
tour in Amsterdam and Brussels.

I hear that Amsterdam has the best beers in the world?

That is how wars are started! :slight_smile:

I forgot the name of that brewery in the middle of the Antwerp, but I remember Tuesday 50% off specials. Hoegaarden is my favorite!

Or was it botanicals?

indeed :wink:

Take a tour to the beer museum in Amsterdam

WHAT ??? THATS THE WORST BEER IN THE WORLD :wink:

@ Mike - told ya!

I will be making a quantitative analysis of the situation, and arrive at my own decision. :smiley:

@ David@ Emrol - Thanks David. I will be taking the list with me.

@ patc - thanks for the info! we need to drink lots of beer prior to the trip so we are in proper condition.

@ patc - I only see Cerb40 in the middle. :wink:

Thats a “Dekoninck”, brewed in Antwerpen :
