Today is international beer day. Am certainly no connaisseur when it comes to beer. Am not much of a drinker. However, here is one tip.

If you are in Belgium go to a bar called De Dulle Griet at the Vrijdagmarkt (Friday Market) in Ghent. It’s a lovely city to visit anyway.

Order Kwak. They will make you take off one shoe and they will tie it to a chandelier. In return you will get a unique beer served in a unique glass. Just don’t break it. It will cost you. Don’t drink it too fast or the beer will splash all over your face. Hence the name Kwak – I think – because ‘kwak’ is – it has many meanings actually- the word for a splashing sound in Dutch.

If you don’t want to risk breaking an expensive glass go for one of my favorites: Orval, Barbar or la Chouffe. For example. In De Dulle Griet alone they serve more than 200 different beers.

Enjoy!

Treat us to a cup of coffee

It's a great joy and honor to be able to create content for our readers. It's nothing short of a calling and if it would not be rewarding we would of course not be doing it. That being said it's also true that it sure doesn't come easy. Thousands and thousands of hours go into providing this website for you. Countless hours of research, reading, studying, discussions, brainstorms, some heated arguments between the driving forces behind this site about the content offered. Honestly, this website costs blood, sweat and tears. Ok, maybe not blood, but plenty of sweat and tears. It’s not cheap either. It’s safe to say that this site is like a full-time job on top of our regular jobs. So what we are asking is this: If you’ve had some fun on our site, you could spread some joy of your own and support us. We are hell bent on improving the quality of this site. If you treat us to just one (hopefully more than one) cup of coffee (3€) we will feel energized to raise the bar. Every donation will strictly be used to improve this website. So no, we won’t actually buy coffee. Thank you very much! PS Yes, this is a picture of Zuzi.
