Best drinking town in Belgium

Posted by Jeremy Gray on 12/08/2004 01:42:02 PM

Yes, IMO Gent has that title right now. At least 6, possibly 8 beer cafes with over 100 beers each on their lists.

Waterhuis, Hop Duvel, Dulle Griet, Trollekelder, Trappistenhuis and Deus are the 6 that I am more or less certain about; Brouwzaele and Business are two more listed in Webb that appear to have over 100. I haven't been in those last two but would be interested to hear about them.

The first six I mentioned are all, IMO, superb: Deus and Trappistenhuis are also just a few minutes walk apart; and you can get from there to Hop Duvel easily if you know your trams (21 and 22, IIRC). Then in the centre the Waterhuis really does have a superb list and its a superb setting by the canal - and Abajour is another really good option not far from there.

Never been in A Capella, can anyone help with that?

And what other options are there? - would love to find even more, but the above are the reasons why Gent stands out right now for me.

Hope this helps with your trip planning, Steve, I know you'd love Gent!

Cheers

Jeremy
