We’ve had a few comments about how we know which Belgian beers are vegan and Eric is going to write something about that in the next day or two. He will provide a much better explanation, but for the most part, all Belgian beers are vegan.
Alright, I am going to try to wrap up this trip! We took the train back to Brussels Saturday morning. Even though we stayed in Brussels for the majority of the trip, we hadn’t spent much time there.
We booked a hotel through Priceline for the last two nights and it worked out quite well.
I named my backpack my turtle shell for the trip because I thought I looked like a turtle while wearing it.
As soon as we dropped off our bags we headed back to the Cantillon Brewery. We wanted to pick up a few things to bring back with us. But of course we had to have a beer or two.
When we were at the beer festival last week some people gave us the name of a bar in Brussels to try out. We didn’t know where it was so Eric asked the nice older lady at the gift shop for directions. Well next thing we knew she offered to partially walk us to the bar. We are thinking she is just crazy but decide to go with her and follow her. We’re talking to her and then she tells us that she is the grand-daughter of the founding Cantillon brewery. How awesome is that? And that she still works at the brewery and it’s still all in the family. It really makes you appreciate it even more.
So the bar we headed to was called Moeder Lambic.
They had a pretty large amount of beers on tap and a lot were breweries we had yet to try.
And I might have had my favorite beer of the trip!
If you are in Brussels and like beer I highly recommend Moeder Lambic.
After finishing up we headed across the street to eat falafel. If you haven’t noticed, we did eat a lot of falafel on the trip. And we ate a lot more than I even posted. Mainly because it’s inexpensive and fillings.
Anyways we headed to Mr. Falafel, it was good, but it was no Sonny’s in Amsterdam.
After eating we had one last bar on our mind, the Delirium Cafe!
It was Saturday night so the bar was pretty crazy. It’s probably best described as a college bar, except with really, really nice beers. Eric and I luckily scored a table and were able to hang out for most of the night.
It ended up being a pretty late night but we woke up Sunday morning and explored a lot of Brussels.
I’m so, so, so happy Eric and I took this trip. When I was in college I took advantage of being able to travel often. As I got older I just kept making excuses, it costs too much money, I’d have to take too much time off work, etc. Then it hit me that it’s just going to get harder and harder. I love travelling and really want to make it a priority as long as I can.
