Rant: Belgium
« on: March 04, 2011, 09:03:47 AM »
The country is Belgium, beers(and other things) from there are Belgian.  They are Belgian beers brewed in Belgium.  Nouns and adjectives people. 

I'm sure I'm not the first...

I still to this day have to double check my spelling as I sometimes type before I think.

Spelling is not my strong point.

I'd honestly have to say that New Belgian's 1554 is one of my favorite commercial beers.  Although, it is a little lighter in color than it used to be and doesn't have quite the red tint it used to have.

I had an England beer last night. A Fuller's 1845 which kick the pants off any New Belgian beer. Especially 1554. ;)

Wouldn't that be a United Soviet Solcialist Republic Imperial Stout?
