So i'm trying to keep up with all the posts about people visiting Belgium but I have some additional questions that I'm hoping for help with. I'm looking to spend about 4-5 days in Belgium, So far my list includes: Sint-Sixtus De Struis Cantillion 3 Fonteinen I'm mostly a stout/barleywine/barrel-aged/sour fan, any other suggestions? Transportation: I'll eurostar from London, but the question is where to end up. Brussels seems the most obvious home base, then rent a car (I see the regular US rental companies, Enterprise, etc) and go traveling to places outside of there...would it make more sense to take the eurostar to say Bruge or Gent and then drive from there, or does it really make a difference? Should I assume average travel times for the distances I see on google maps (80kph)? Accommodations: Suggestions on affordable places to stay? I'll need at least 1 night out by Sint-Sixtus/DeStruise and the rest will probably be spent in Belgium. I'm looking to head out there last week of sept/first week of Oct. Any recommendations on special events or special releases during that time? Food: Any must-try restaurants? I hear Belgium has good Chocolate too Goodies to share: I think beer is best when it's shared, so I'm planning on bringing a beer or two with me to share with the local bar/taprooms. Any recommendations on US beers or at least styles that seem to go over well?...Aside from the obvious Bud Light w/Lime p.s. just read about Borefts, sounds like it would be worth the trip. Suggestions on how to get there?
