In honor of our Belgian National Holiday, I made a traditional Belgian Beer Stew with fries and a chicory salad. For beer, I used Kasteel donker, a dark Belgian quadrupel, and Rodenbach, a Flemish red-brown ale. Other dark beers that work very well are Leffe dark, Gouden Carolus Classic, and Rochefort 10. For the stew,..
