Where I stayed
Anyway. After the tower I did a brewery tour of a brewery here in town. What a cool experience. Tons of maxing history and info on the Belgian beer. Good beer to finish up w as well. Oh yeah I had a traditional belgian waffle while I was waiting. :)
From there I went to the saturday market and ate like a king for less than 6 euro
After that I stopped by a couple of cafes and had a beer at each.(pics of each as well) Very nice! I then ended up in a small little bar where I had a few pints of beer where there is no where else you can get this beer in the world. VERY NICE. Except they get you messed up. The reason you can't get it anywhere else is the monks that brew it limit the quantities so much and select where it goes Most Belgium beer is very strong like 10 or 12%. Alcohol. Sneaky little buggars. Beer was called Garre. I did end up talking to this local Belgian couple for about 5 hours about everything! Again this is an experience just like the party train that you can't plan and will stick out to me the most. I sat, talked, laughed, and made some great friends. Locals to boot! Learned a ton. Talked politics, life, love, and people in general. They come to this. Bar every sat for drinks w friends. I guess I picked a good one ;) Good times.
Last but not least I heard about this restaurant that is only open on the weekends that serves traditional Belgium/ Flemish meals.
Here I am in the bar next to my hostel trying yet a dif type of beer and about to watch the euro cup game. Cheers!
Tom I am headed to Ghent Belgium for a couple of nights. Before I leave I will be stoping by this bar here in Brugge that supposedly has more than 2000 beers. Have to try a couple. Damn beer is so good and cool. :)
Sleep we'll you guys!
