Hello !!!! I have some questions for you ! My bf and i are planning a trip to Belgium oct 18th to 23rd. He's the beer fiend, i have a very little beer knowledge but getting slowly better and i'm really excited about this trip ! Anyway, our plan, so far, is to go to: near brussels: -Cantillon on the 18th, -3 fonteinen, maybe oud beersel (does anyone know what oude opening hours are, i couldn't find anything online..?) and Hanssens on the 19th. Is the trip to both breweries (beersel-dworp)possible on the same day ? I mean we won't have a car, we'll catch trains and buses... -Girardin to buy bottles on sat 20th morning near Brugge: -De Dolle-visit of the brewery on sunday 21st and Lindemans on the 22nd... Can individuals visit the brewery ? I checked the website but it only mentions group... Do you think that plan could work ? He would also love to go to Fantome... I contacted Dany the brewer who told me that Soy was the very far end of the world haha but that we could catch a train to Hotton... but from there ? ...its like an hour walk :S So i was wondering if anyone from BA located in Belgium that owns a car would be interested in a trip to Fantome brewery ? of course, we would split gas. maybe on sat 20th afternoon... just let me know maybe we can change a few things in our plan. I believe my bf left a thread about some beer trading/meeting beer aficionados a few weeks ago before leaving the us but he posted it too late so he was already gone by the time people answered... Anyway if people wants to meet up somewhere in Brussels, in a pub for example and drink some beers with us, send me an email ! (same for those interested in checking the breweries i mentionned above) About the sleeping situation, i believe there are some not too expensive hostels around Brussels and brugge but i was thinking of checking couchsurfing instead... Any BA member here that would also be a host member on couchsurfing ? if not any recommendations (hostels)? It's his first trip in europe (im from france) so i'm trying to make our trip to Belgium as cool as possible ! Thanks for the help !
