This post is a continuation of the 2015 New Beer Every Day Beer Diary Challenge, #ottbeerdiary. Over the course of 2015, I drank at least one new beer every day. Please read the background in the link above, and enjoy reading about the most recently tasted beers below. This year I may deviate from the diary format in some posts, hoping to concentrate more on the locations and the breweries I am enjoying. If you’d like to join the challenge as well, let me know in the comments below. You can catch up on all of our posts as part of the challenge under the tag ottbeerdiary.
Day 871: May 20, 2017
After a trip to Amsterdam Schipol Airport this morning, I traveled down to Brussels in the evening to meet up with my cousin who has been in Europe for the past week for a friend’s wedding. A nice dinner near the Atomium at Brasserie de l’Expo, and then a trip to the original Moeder Lambic in Saint-Gilles for a final beer or two.
