So I flew in a day early to Brussels and hit Cantillon and then Moeder Fontainas for Zwanze celebrations.
Met up with some folks at Cantillon via another beer forum (not BA, not RateBeer) and split bottles all afternoon. Crazy stuff.
Really enjoyed Jean van Roy opening bottles of Zwanze '11, Menu Pineau, Cuvee Florian (oak aged), and the like.
We then headed up to Lambic O Droom (Drie Fonteinen). Ok spot, but out of the way. Had some really good beer then headed back to the city.
Cleaned up and hit Moeder. What a place. Taps were fantastic and my only disappointment came when they kicked the St.Lam.
Otherwise the pours of Rhubarb, Mamouche, and Fou set the plate nicely for the Zwanze.
Jean and his team were there. Lots of fun skits and cheers.
Of course this is just a once a year thing so I can only recommend visiting on Oct.1.
Great walkable city. The Grand Place and Mannekin Pis are in close range to Moeder and worth the stop.
