    I have now read yours & Ali’s posts and am thoroughly excited about trying this for myself. Hopefully we will be visiting Brussels in the near future and chocolate and beer will be mine! Thanks for sharing the foodie/drinkie love.

      Yup, the beer there is really top. If you go while are in Berlin and are going to be lugging stuff back, I might make an order.

    […] I like beer. I do remember the first few times I drank though. It was exciting and one beer got me tipsy and still made me sick the next day. After a while, I learned how to slow down and enjoy the beer. It didn’t make me sick and I had enough tolerance so a single sip didn’t push me over the edge. Every so often though, I get times when I don’t drink again for a couple of months. When I have my first beer after that time, it feels like I need to relearn it all over again. […]

    Yes ! Each beer has her glass ! Don’t drink a beer in a other glass 🙂

      Ah.. i see you did find the Belgian beer post. Good. Yeah, though mostly it is the shape of the glass that is important, not the name on the side.

    Mmm… this makes me want a good beer so badly! I generally like European beers — Chimay is probably my favorite — but I’ve gotta say, craft breweries in New England make the absolute best beer in the world! If we’re both back in the US at the same time, we’ll have to introduce you guys to some of our beers. In the meantime, we’re stuck here in China with not-so-great beers while you’re living the life in Europe! Though we did enjoy a very expensive Chimay this week in Beijing (it was for a birthday!). Cheers!

      I like the small breweries too. We had a brewery restaurant in Raleigh that was great until it burned down. I will definitely take you up on seeing more craft beers in New England. Sorry that China is not such the beer place. Asia seems more of a rice than a wheat culture, which probably has a lot to do with it.

    Looking at that beer just about brought tears to my eye… wonderful stuff – you’re pretty lucky lol

      Thanks. It really was tasty. Just need to head back or find an importer.

    I am not a beer connoisseur at all. However, I’ve heard that Belgians (like Czechs) have a good reputation for beer. When I get to Belgium, I will definitely have to try it. I think I would like chimay the best based on the descriptions. I would definitely enjoy the chocolate!

      The Chimay was very tasty. I have seen it in the States, at least in NC in some form, so you can try it if you want. The chocolate though may be more difficult to find.

    Most Americans I know prefer Belgian beer. Too bad it’s so hard to find in Germany. (I am not much of a beer drinker so I don’t care either way.)

      I would love to find some imported from Belgium. I have found plenty of Czech beer imported, but not yet Belgian.
