Re: I've Been Sitting Here Biting My Lip ....

>>If I am being "unwise and not intelligent" by having "no proof", can I ask you what proof you have Filip ??<<

Mark, we don't have any proof, so we may not accuse people. No proof = No accusation. If you nonetheless do, then I think it's "unwise" and not "intelligent". One thing is sure, the ribs with oerbier are NOT on the menu anymore at Dickie's. I've seen it with my own eyes ! Still, I don't dispute Jeremy's integrity, because first there are no proofs and secondly there's most probably some misunderstanding going on.

>>Yes, I know you have not written the words "Jeremy is a liar"<<

OK !

>>You said that you believe Sabrina. Therefore you don't believe Jeremy<<

Mark, you fail immensely here. Yes, I believe Sabrina. No, this has not as result that I don't believe Jeremy. It's a conclusion "you" are making. A wrong one, no doubt. Sorry Joris, I have to repeat myself again: IMO nobody is lying ! Why ? Because a misunderstanding is the reason for all this hassle. A misunderstanding which is a mystery for me. And frankly I will not look for it neither.

BUT, and this is far more important. The comments Jeremy gave on Dickie's disturbed me alot. The report itself in it's totallity was nonetheless a great joy to read, a good promotion for bruges (thanks Jeremy!) and made with a very good sence of reality and objectivity. ONLY, when Dickie's was described, I felt the info lacked completely accuracy and some 'heart' for Belgian beer. Jeremy did never mentioned the "90" different beers they offer. 90 different and well chosen Belgian quality beers. Nothing was said about that, and the draught Avec les Bons Voeux was the only positive note in his comments. I personally think this is doing Dickie's some major injustice when we're talking promotion Belgian beer. When I think Dickie's, I immediately think Belgian Beer Pub . A pub that does some great and admirable efforts to offer some 90 different Belgian quality beers. Dickie's is honorary Zythos member via the Oostendse Bierjutters. I am also member of that organisation but NOT honorary member. I can proof this by showing their membercard: http://www.geocities.com/belgianbeerboard/dickiesdob.jpg

For me this is a first priority that pubs that 'care' and 'stimulate' the selling and "making available" of Belgian beer do need upper attention and promotion. Jeremy failed immensely because he did nothing to show the people that this place is a wondeful "beery" place. One of the few still existing here in Brugge. Jeremy, hope you don't feel offended by that. Most probably you must have forgotten that Dickie's is a beer pub in the first place.

And like you probaly already know Mark, when Filip sees that there's injustice done towards belgian beer, he GOES for it.....

Cheers,

Filip
