Some time ago, Simon Johnson, “Mr Reluctant” and I were poodling thru France and the Belgian border lands, searching for fantasy monastic brews, but Steve was back at the BrewWharf knocking up a little English ale, to see what’s what. Continue reading

About: Good Beer Guide Belgium – 2009 –
In the Good Beer Guide Belgium 2009, Tim Webb does a superhuman job chronicling the staggering array of breweries, beers, and bars in the Benelux region. I have referred to my weather beaten, beer stained and thoroughly thumbed copy on many a trip to Belgium, for me the book was indispensable. You probably can’t afford not to use this guide. Not all beers or bars are created equal, even in Belgium. With a limited time and traveller’s budget it would be impossible to have savoured as many beers as I have without Webb’s help.
Because the Benelux countries are among the most pleasant in the world and easiest to get around and travel in, you will not even need a Lonely Planet or Rough Guide–the important stuff (the beer!) is in Tim Webb’s book. You can easily find hotels, sightseeing info, and food when you are there, because the region is highly traveller-friendly. However, many of the local beer menus include thousands of offerings and so you can imagine how a guidebook like this might come in handy.
The Good Beer Guide Belgium 2009 will also help you decipher those book-long beer menus and select the right brew for you. With the guide in hand you also might find yourself in towns and villages you never would have visited otherwise, because you were drawn there for a Trappist monastery or a special little bit of brewing history. There are a smattering of other beer guides to the region but none even come close to this one!
Here you have an opportunity to grab both the book and great beers for a very special price!
Now in its sixth edition, CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide to Belgium is the essential guide book for any beer lover travelling to Belgium. Its outline of breweries, beers and bars is so impressive that it is acknowledged as the standard work for Belgian beer lovers, even in Belgium itself.
The book includes comprehensive advice on getting there, what to eat, where to stay and how to bring beers back home. The new edition is suitable for both leisure and business travellers as well as for armchair drinkers looking to enjoy a selection of Belgian brews from their local beer shop.
As well as describing over 1,000 beers from every Belgian brewery and a guide to over 600 quirky cafes in Belgium, the book also gives a comprehensive listing of the best UK outlets for Belgian beers.
This is a must for any lover of Belgium and its beers.
Well done Tim!
