Euro Beer #20: Westvleteren 12

In the fall of 2007 my wife and I traveled through Europe for 10 weeks. We ate a lot of food and drank of a lot of beer (and wine). Not enough food, not enough beer. Still tripping around in Brussels:

Beer has come a long way (even since 2007). Westvleteren 12 was back then, and even now mostly, considered the best beer in the world. I bought one in Brussels. I should have bought more. But again, we were still being cheap; it was still early in our trip.

We drank it at our host's apartment. It was good. The photo, not so good.

Here is some other stuff we did the following day:

Coffee and croissants at Gusti D'Italia. It was quite pleasant until a delivery truck came up and idled by us for 5 minutes. That was not so pleasant.

Then we went walking in the forest. I was the tour guide.

On our walk we scarfed some of our Pierre Marcolini chocolates (do not click this link unless you want an insane web experience). So fancy.

Then Oups for soups. This place is awesome. Definitely go here if you are ever in Brussels.

My soup. I got a big bowl. Sofia got two small bowls. I win.
