Hi all, I am planning a week-long trip to Belgium, almost exclusively to visit bars and breweries. I will be going with my wife and maybe one or two other couples. I will mostly be driving around. Although maybe I will need to leave the car at some places to be able to drink. I would appreciate any comments on my choices of the places and routes. Also if you have any suggestions on places to stay, those would be appreciated. For example I haven't decided how to stay in Brussels. Since I want to dine at both Drie Fonteinen and DHvL, maybe staying one night each near those places could be a good idea, so as not to drive there and back from Brussels. Or maybe just stay in town and catch a train. Anyways, I thank you in advance for any tips and suggestions. Also, please let me know if you know of any advance reservations that need to be made. Here is my first draft of an itinerary: Belgium April 2014: Tuesday 8: Arrival to CDG 9:40am. Rent a car. Drive (2 hrs. 15 min) to Watou to St. Bernardus Bed & Breakfast and brewery. Check-in at B&B.
