Beer In Brussels

Beer has been around for ages. It is a popular beverage all around the globe. One place in particular that is known for its beer is Brussels. Travel Writer/Photographer Sergi Reboredo writes about his experience beer testing over there:

"Beer runs a close second to chocolate as the Belgian passion. After testing it in various places, I settle on Halles St-Géry as my own preferred drinking den. Saint-Géry was a Gothic church built in the late Middle Ages but demolished during the French Revolution of 1798 to leave a public square and market. In 1881, a market hall was built that has now been transformed into a center and exhibition hall dedicated to the heritage and environment of the city of Brussels. The bar inside offers shelter from inclement weather, while the terraces are the perfect place to enjoy a sunny day.

I sit outside to sample some of the recommendations the friendly staff are happy to make. Some of the beers are mild, such as Blanche or the famous Kriek, made with sour cherries, and Framboise, made with raspberry. For those with a stronger or more adventurous palate, brands such as Orval, Rochefort or Chimay pack more of a kick. I am very impressed by the Abbey beers, especially the Grimbergen Double. Although no longer made by monks, the beers are based on their original recipe."

 

The annual Ommegang Parade, which honours the coming of Charles V to Brussels in 1549 and involves 1,400 actors in medieval costume, can be hot work in the July sunshine. Belgians each drink an average of 74 liters of beer per year, putting them in the top 20 of a league dominated by the Czech Republic at 149 liters.
