A bit more (beer) Brussels

Here’s the important stuff: not all beer is great here-I know. It’s mad. But don’t let that stop you from trying to find delicious stuff. Also, hops are on par with the other ingredients not elevated to some celestial throne this allows the Belgium beers more complexity and for me a much better balance of sweet/bitter.

The above beer was really nice and only an 8 percent.

I went out with some cool people after Brugge( you can see Zoë and Marko’s hat in the middle photo). Any fan of stouts is a winner in my books!

So this. It’s in a tiny pop cap bottle. Cutest beer ever. And no, that is not too much head. Stop it. Anyway, I’ve basically had to question my entire beer pouring philosophy but the Flemish man said that’s how it’s done.

A bit of Brussels

Here’s the deal: Beer, Chocolate, Waffels, more beer, beautiful architecture, new earings?

I’m a bit of a fan and I still haven’t tried the chocolate. reason? there is a chocolate shop on every street, chocolate is everywhere. it’s just a bit duanting. Instead of eating chocolate all day I woke up early do do laundry with my new ausie buddies and go on a walking tour of the city. I almost feel too knowledgable now, we walked a lot. this is another moment where I feel I owe you more photos but sometimes you can tell a picture is just too inadequate to cover the scene. So here are some pieces from our tour

PJ: our hilarious tour guide who limped all around with us for 2 hours with a broken toe. Total history nerd with a cheesy personality- one of my favourite parts of the afternoon. And of course, obligatory brussels photo-op with this classy guy
