    I never heard of it but the date will be easy to remember as I have a sister born on the 6th. There aren't many Belgian beers in town but I'll be sure to hoist a glass of a few of them that day.
  3. My view is that they need a web designer.
  4. Yes it is a bit clunky
    and utilises all the colours of the migraine
  5. Where it says it as about 'habits' do I get to dress up as a nun?
  6. Corporal Jones lives on!
  7. Don't tell him your name Bevis!

  10. This is just a fun event designed to encourage people to toast the original craft brewers - the Belgians. Worldwide, every 3 hours people are asked to raise a glass to Belgian Brewers. Some places are organizing special events but the gist of it is for the entire world to toast Belgian Brewers. It is on a 3 hour basis so that all time zones can participate.
    Just for fun :)
  11. Belgians - original craft brewers?

    Think you'll find it was the Egyptians or Mesopotamians!
  12. Mesopotamian beer used rice so it tasted like Budweiser
    & Egyptian beer was all keg made with very little hops to appeal to the lager lout Pharaohs
    So Belgium has the right to first craft beer brewers :confused:
