And here's the beer that caused my hangover of today..
Belgium is a country that doesn't excel in a lot of disciplines (however, they recently won the worldrecord of not having a government for the longest period of time). When you hear 'Belgium' you'll probably think about waffles, fries, chocolate and Jean-Claude Van Damme. A lot of you won't even know these few 'typical' things from Belgium.
Belgium has, in my opinion, the best beers on the world. Sure, there are also lousy Belgian beers.. But beers like Westvleteren, Stella, Jupiler, Hoegaarden, Leffe, Duvel.. are beers you must've tasted at least once in your life. I'll go a bit further into that last one: Duvel.
"To commemorate the end of World War I, the Moortgats named their main beer Victory Ale. But during the 1920s, an avid drinker described the beer as "nen echten duvel" (a real devil in BrabantianDutch) - perhaps in reference to its formidable alcohol content (8.5% ABV) - and the name of the beer was changed to Duvel. It has become the brewery's flagship beer. Considered by many the definitive version of the Belgian Strong Golden Ale style, Duvel is brewed with Pilsner malt and white sugar, and hopped with Saaz hops and Styrian Goldings, the yeast still stems from the original culture of Scottish yeast bought by Albert Moortgat during a business tour of the U.K. just after World War I." ~ Source: Wikipedia
