Upon the recommendation of Tim Webb's wonderful beer guide Lambikland I dragged myself and my lovely lady friend Elaina to Camping, the home bar of Biersel's football team and some wonderful Boon and Biersel products. I started with a tap Boon Kriek followed by a bottle of Boon Oude Geuze. Next we drank Beerselis Kriek, a very nice semi-lambic beer from the new old Beersel brewery.

60% of the many patrons found here on this rainy weekday spoke French. The rest spoke Flemish. I found this interesting. The bar crawled with excited little children playing on their PSPs while teens sat listening to Emo music and the adults gossiped or watched replays of horse jumping on the Olympics, which were then taking place.

Horse jumping is quite possibly the worst sport ever invented. It goes something like this... 16 odd looking Eurotrash progs on horseback jump over some hedges. 15 of them tie. One is out. The match goes to overtime. This repeats all day long until only 13 are left. Then it goes on some more for about three or four days. Finally, the guy with the weird name from Canada beats all the Eurotrash. What a crock! Still, the Flemish are obsessed with this nonsense. Pimped out horse trailers on a rundown Flemish farm are as common as Nascar hopeful trailers are in the Southern US. Heck I even saw a group of suits from Lloyd's inspecting a stallion when I walked the road from Diksmuide to Esen.

At any rate, Camping offers all a beer drinker could hope for in a sports bar - pictures of pigeons everywhere, trophies and soccer memorabilia, cranky old men, a couple half burnt out old TVs, and all the Boon Geuze and Orval one can drink. Oh, they also have a campground out back and a large function room.

Dirt cheap. Responsive and prompt, albeit cranky and horse jumping obsessed service.
