Beers of Belgium | Beer is Food

Beer is a culture in Belgium, and very CHEAP compared to the prices in the United States. There is over 800 varieties, each with their own specialty glass to enhance the flavor of the frothy beverage. Our favorite thing to do while touring, and after touring, was to stop off at a local beer house to enjoy a delicious glass of beer while watching the local life pass you by. For a country so small, Belgium has an astounding amount of breweries and beer styles. Even though Belgium has 3 official languages (Flemish, French, and German) it’s not hard to converse with bar mates after a few beers :)
