(C) THOUGHT OF THE DAY - Exclusive beer distributors are from hell.

I just got a couple of rants about this trip to Brussels.  It seems they no longer serve Westmalle beer on the Grand'Place -- APPARENTLY because it is not carried by some exclusive distributor, ImBrew maybe??  So now you can only get beers from some "exclusive distributor" - which happen to be the familiar Chimay, Leffe, Duvel line.  Now these are excellent beers, but if Belgians start falling for this exclusive distribution network crap, the smaller brewers of the best beer will go out of business.  And you will not be the "Country of the beer" anymore.  So there. 

AND BY THE WAY, what happened to the late night Leonidas chocolate stand just off the Grand'Place?  It appears to have been replaced by some crappy Godiva store.  Maybe the Swiss make better chocolate anyway...
