beer bars, cafes, and shops pour into the gothic, gabled splendor
of Brussels' central square.

Arrival & Departure
Trip Begins in Brussels, Belgium
& Ends in Antwerp, Belgium
Both cities are served by Brussels International. Tranfers
by rail or direct airport shuttle are easy and convenient.
The overall style of the trip is best suited for somewhat adventurous,
beer-loving travelers who want the camaraderie and structure of
a tour, as well as the opportunity to explore independently. Planned
events and excursions will, for the most part, be informal. Guided
touring is generally the exception, though travelers can always
rely on the support and assistance of the trip leader.
** Please note also:
This itinerary is subject to change based on brewery or hotel
availability, force majeur, acts of dieties, common sense or bad
weather, etc. Smaller breweries, as well as the Trappists, are often
unable to commit to hosting groups until a couple of weeks before
we arrive. Substitutions, when necessary, will be as good or better
than what we replaced. And, don't worry, the beer is always good!
