Just a heads-up, we'll be in Brussels twice (picking up & dropping off rental car) so the odds have doubled ;D

The sauces shouldn't be a problem, heck Cholula Chipotle is my house sauce and I'll look around for Uncle Brutha's #9.

I'm looking to find this beer> Viven Imperial IPA couldn't find it this past april in Antwerp but did find Troubadour Magma IPA

Would you be able to look around for a bottle of each?

ciao

Way cool.

I don't know those beers, but they sound yummy. I'll do some searching. After an initial bit of research, it looks like distribution is not widespread. Still, I'll see what I can do.

One minor rant - more freakin' Proef beers. Doesn't anybody have their own brewery anymore?

August,27am  we'll be leaving Amsterdam  heading  to Brussels Zuidstation(Midi)  to get our car before heading to  Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.

So we'll be in arriving there around mid-afternoon +/-, before heading to Spa-Francorchamps.

I'll have more details later & hope my vodafone number is still valid.

You're getting the car at Midi? Huh, interesting. That's an easy run to Moeder Lambic Fontainas from there.

Look what I found:


Notice that the bottle is empty. There are 2 left. Better hurry.

Wife says thats the station we get off to go pick up the car.... which means we could be walking to find the rental shop.

So how was the beer?  :D  We had the Troubadour Magma IPA on draft but wasn't able to find Viven Imperial IPA in Antwerp.

I called the wife to confirm the car rental shop was at or near  Midi station, she'll get back with me later tonight.

How eager are you to head to Spa? I'm off work at 4pm and can be in the Midi area in 20-30 minutes. Have you been to Cantillon? If you're not in a hurry and looking to kill a little time, it's a must, and a pretty easy walk from the station.

The beer was good. Excellent, even. I'd say it compares with the better American IPA's. If you live in the USA, I'm not so sure it's worth the effort to find it. But for me, it's good to know there's something like that around when I'm jonesin' for the flavors of home (and I'm out of homebrew). Thanks for pointing me to it. I'll be sure to save ya one.

Details,details, it depends on how long the drive is to the Spa region. The maps says 114k. If theres time than we would love to visit Cantillon as we didn't have time in 2007, just enough  for a few beers at Delirium Café.


If you live in the USA, I'm not so sure it's worth the effort to find it. Thanks for pointing me to it. I'll be sure to save ya one.

We're in hot & sticky Fla. & the heat index right now is a cool 46.ºC   ;D  Viven is  just another hard to find beer to add to our list ;D

So was the package of green plant material any good :o :D 

So lastnight I sampled the IPA... not bad for a Belgian take on the classic west coast style of IPA ;D The only probelm was the flavor wasn't as strong as the damn fine aroma, nit pickin I know.



Tonight with dinnner we had the beers from
BRASSERIE DE BELLEVAUX and Brasserie de Malmédy(blond-brune)

Tonight we're drinking more beers ::)
something from some guys  from sweden.

How was it? I keep wanting to go there, but never seem to make it. They have some hiking trails leaving from the place I'd like to check out as well.
