Guide Alcohol in Belgium

When it comes to beer, Belgium is king. In Belgium, a glass of beer can easily be thought of as part of the meal, and beers across a dizzying spectrum of hues are popular here. Drinking beer and spirits first developed in Europe as practices which promoted good health. Belgian brewing practices are second to none, and brewers produce beers that carry strong fruit overtones, are strong in alcohol content, and are a terrific swill from the first aroma to the aftertaste.
