I finally traveled to Belgium for a personal holiday and had a fantastic time. Some photos will pop up in future posts but I wanted to share some of my favorites.

Highlights:

  • Night of the Great Thirst 2014
  • Cantillon Quintessence 2014
  • Zythos Beer Celebration 2014
  • Visiting Fantome Brewery in Soy, Belgium
  • The huge Pannepot Tasting w/ Mathieau
  • De Heeren van Liedekercke

Drinking old Oude Gueuze pretty much everywhere we went was incredible. Some of the stuff from the 80s was terrible but it was an incredible experience!

DanyP, easily one of the most kind brewers I’ve ever met. Chatted with us for 2 hours sharing beers and giving a tour. Very open and interesting to chat with.
