Day trip to Brussels

We went in to Brussels for the day to get our sour beer fix. A La Becasse, Cantillon and Chez Moeder Lambic.

If you don't know where to look for A La Becasse, you'll probably miss it

This narrow alley and the mosaic are all you see from the street.

The Lambic here is served in a traditional pitcher. Lambic Doux, Kreik and Lambic Blanc

We then went to the Anderlecht district of Brussels to visit the Cantillon Brewery. I didn't take pictures because I have a ton from previous visits.

Next it was Chez Moeder Lambic, my favorite pub in the Brussels. Its located in the St Giles district. They are opening a new, much larger pub in central Brussels, but we missed the opening by a week.

Even in Belgium the beer can be too cold!

Taras Boulba from Brasserie de la Senne

A delivery van from Cantillon pulled up while we were there. They almost got a ticket for parking in a crosswalk.

Saison de la Senne -- a mix of Taras Bulba and Cantillon lambic. Delicious.
