579 Beers on the Wall...

...You take 36 down, then fall on the ground...

Our recent trip to the BENELUX countries was one of the most amazing beer experiences of my life. Belgians, especially, appreciate and take pride in their beer, and we were the fortunate to be able to sample many of them. Actually, between the three of us, we tasted over three dozen! One beer cafe in Brugge had a beer menu with over 500 beers in it (see above). Here's what we had:
