Of course, I don’t have to tell you that Belgium is famous for its beers. A typical Belgian beer that is only brewed here in Belgium is Lambic. The special feature of lambic is that it is fermented by exposure to wild yeasts present in the air and the building.
If you like beer and aren’t afraid of a challenge, you have to participate in the Great Breweries Marathon. Don’t let you scare you with the word marathon because there are also other options; you can run 25 km or walk 25km or 42km. The first edition in 2016 was a success and was completely sold out with 1500 runners and 4000 walkers.
Belgium is famous for its beers. I am not a big fan of beers but my boyfriend is a real beer lover. Although I don’t drink a lot of beer, I find the whole brewing process very interesting, so visiting a brewery is something I really like. In the past, I already visited a few breweries, often as part of a brewery class during my education. But in Belgium, there is no shortage of breweries that you can visit.
When we were interviewed at the airport in Amsterdam about our trip to the US, we got the question why Des Moines? Why? Well, we were invited to celebrate the wedding of friends. It was a very nice and lovely experience to be part of. We had a very good time in Des Moines and had the chance to catch up with old friends.
