Nice work area, @itsratso,
Just make sure you don’t spill your wine😂
You may wreck your music sheets.

My favorite brew in the entire world is a good Belgium Ale. Here in the States, my favorite is Chimay, but I’m sure there’s better stuff that I can’t find here. I don’t drink much, but when I do it had better be flavorful. A good Belgium Ale fits the bill.

Well, Belgian beer is hard to find in the US. The Chimay tastes good, but if I remember correctly, it is brewed in the US. There might be issues with importing it directly, cost most probably.

I’m lucky that I live not far from the real place. Supermarkets have a more than decent choice of Belgian beer :grinning:

Yes. I remember when I was in college decades ago, and I took a PE class “Exercise for Health and Fitness.” Our instructor was a British lady who had been finalist for the English Olympic team (track). Good instructor for sure, but I remember her telling us, “Guinness? No, the Guinness you have here is very tame. If you had Guinness in Great Britain you’d know what I mean.”

So, yeah, I never read the bottle, but I loved that stuff form the first time I tried in in a tavern with my Grandpa. I’ve tried others like Maredsous, but Chimay was the best for me. I was going to visit this year and hoped to sample some good brew and dust off my rusted German, but that which cannot be named destroyed our plans to visit Europe (amongst other things).

At least I can get a bottle once every now and again, and dream…

This is actually a homebrew clone of gulden drak 9000 quad because my wife loves gulden drak. Turned out really nice. Here in Chicago we have a Belgian bar, hopleaf, that is known around the world for its extensive collection of belgians.

I should probably investigate that angle! Houston is nearly as big as Chicago, and we have a very diverse restaurant / bar scene.

Looks great!
Experts say “don’t call it practice, just play your heart out.” Great advice.
