Somewhere in Beersel
November 5, 1998
OK, so I don't always keep track of the name of the pub I'm in. At
least I know what town it is. Anyway, this place is just up the streen from Tres
Fountanous, which also makes it close to the Centrum. The reason we stopped here is
that they serve (and possibly blend) Hansens. We tried the Kriek, it was only
slightly sour, very strange, sweetness as well.
Fortunately, they have a very good range of bottled beers. In fact, I recall seeing
a lot of scotch ale pass by, and some of it might actually of been consumed by yours
I also consumed a fair number of Orvals. Very hoppy, with a dry hop kind of nose.
It has some of the same character as the Sierra Nevada Ales, although you won't
mistake one for the other. 6.2%
Anyway, we stayed here and drank lots of beer and ate some nice bar snacks, and had a
great time with our new friends. According to the guide books, the place should have
closed about 10 PM. As we were the only people in the place, we felt somewhat guilty
about them staying open for us. That was, until about 1:30 AM, when several other
people started wandering in.

Paul has had a rough night!
