First stop on my Belgian bar crawl in Brussels: A la Bécasse
My brother Doug recommended this bar, along with most of my stops along the way. A la Bécasse is famous for its waiters dressed a bit like monks serving the house beer, Lambic Doux, which was maybe too sweet for me. It tasted like I was drinking a gummy beer. Not a bad beer, just not my favorite, and the only beer in Belgium that left me even mildly disappointed.
