This is the format. Beer direct from the barrel (vom fass), into small glasses. Then they keep coming round making sure you don't have an empty glass. It's tough being on holiday.

Cheeky stop at the Rewe supermarkt found these. Had the black one earlier today, knew I would like it. The committee has also decided that bottle tops opened whilst off premise ARE acceptable for presentation in the garage.

After a fruitless traipse thru Antwerp, ended up in Bier Central opposite the hotel. They have 300+ Belgium beers, puts POV to shame. Note to self, never come back to Antwerp, it is not nice. It feels very unsafe with a lot of undesirables around. Gent, in comparison, was superb. We would go there again.

Posted: Sept. 9, 2017, 5:44 p.m.

Saturday 9 Sep 2017 18:01

Arrived in Antwerp, which was a bit nerve wracking (traffic n navigation wise). After we found the hotel the tv had the Vuelta on. Well cycling is the national sport of Belgium
