Real Belgian girl drinks Duvel

I don’t know if you’ve ever tasted Duvel but it’s the Belgian gold, we call it! Every time I drink it, I feel so Belgian myself!

Summer rooftop bar

Duvel is my favorite beer, I love it! It’s a strong beer, although not the strongest beer in Belgium, enough to make me drunk after two Duvels! Efficient right?

If you haven’t tried it yet, I recommend it to you, certainly won’t be a disappointment!

Cheers!

Ramen and Japanese designed Belgium beer

As you’ve probably already know, I love Japan and Japanese everything 😀 especially food. But it’s not so easily to find much Japanese food other than sushi, bento box or ramen in Belgium. Not so many choice here. Even for ramen, there aren’t many good ones. The one in Zacentem called Nanaban is great, probably because Toyota company is based in that village and Japanese employees go there for lunch and dinner. 

The village is between where I live and Brussels, so sometimes I drop by for lunch or dinner too. It’s not that easy though since they only open something like 2 hours for meal time haha. 

Sencha 😀

Oh, and this beer company called Rio Brewing & Co. is interesting. At first glance, I would think, another Japanese beer that I’ve never tried. In fact, after looking it carefully, I figured out these beers are designed by Japanese beer designer and brewed at breweries in Belgium.

They taste very Belgian 😀 You can find these beautiful designed bottles in some Japanese restaurants in Belgium and there is also this RIO BREWING & CO. BISTRO & GARDEN in Tokyo midtown, looking great! Next time in Tokyo, I’m going to check it out. 

 

Berliner Weisse and some other refreshing German beer

The heatwave in Europe becomes unbearable lately, soon next Tuesday it will hit 35 degrees Celsius. Scary! And, the mobile aircos in all shops are already sold out. While thinking what I can do and where I can go to escape the heat. I just collected some beer pictures from my trip in Berlin. Hopefully they can make you feel refreshed too, if you are in Europe 😀

Berliner Weisse

I was fascinated by the neon color of this Berliner Weisse, the green one is with herbal woodruff taste and the red one, raspberry. When I read about the origin of these Berliner Weisse, I discover originally these beers are made to resemble the Belgium sour ales, like kriek. Although I have to say, the Belgian similarities taste a bit better in my opinion 😛 The green one is still special, for its color and unique taste. 

If you ever visit Berlin, give it a try, many bars offer it.

Eschenbräu

Eschenbräu is a bar and beer garden in Wedding (yea, nice name I know) district in Berlin. They have its own house brewery next to the beer garden. They make all different kind of beer, the one I ordered was great. It tastes a bit similar to the Belgian’s Best Duvel Citra triple hop (not that strong though), fruity and fresh. My favourite beer garden in town!

Address: Triftstr. 67, 13353 Berlin

 

More tasty German and Berlin beers: Gosser and Schofferhofer. I tried these three together with Steem Team Berlin @future24 @lex030 @datristan and @kathybell. It was great fun!

I hope you survive the heatwave, cheers!

最近欧洲大暑,热的不太正常。好像连北欧都热,加上这里大家都没有空调,太艰苦了。本来打算去买个移动空调救急,结果都实体店网店卖光了,想想那还是算了吧。这种大热天据说还有延续一周,下周还有几天热得不行,我正在想怎么避暑哈哈!

现在先分享几张德国啤酒图解解暑。德国啤酒全世界有名(偷偷说一句:其实我觉得我们比利时啤酒更好喝)。在柏林我也尝了不少有意思的啤酒。首先必须一提的是Berliner Weisse,尤其是绿色的,绿色的是不是很晃眼,颜色有意思,味道也有意思,是一种草的味道。红色比较常见,是树莓味。据说这种啤酒最初是模仿比利时的酸味啤酒,所以味道有点像比利时的樱桃酒的意思。

在柏林有很多“啤酒花园”,其实就是露天酒吧的意思了,其中有一家叫做Eschenbräu,是柏林人最喜欢去的一家,除了有自酿啤酒,还有一些德式披萨和面包,可以在这里做一下午避暑。他家的自酿啤酒很好喝,清新有多重hop的感觉。后来见了Steem的柏林帮,又尝了其他不同的啤酒。

你们要是去德国,别忘了尝尝这些啤酒哦!

 

#BeerSaturday – Belgian Kriek beer with friends 和朋友喝樱桃啤酒

Kriek is one of the most famous Belgian beers. It’s made of sour cherries. I first drank it back in China, in a Belgian beer bar. I loved it from the first time I drank it. It also give me a refreshing felling. I drink it often in Belgium, it’s so common, you can get it from normal supermarket, night shops, bars. In Belgium, drinking is super cheap. I remember in a Belgian bar in China it costs around 7 euro while in Belgium, it costs no more than 2.5 euro.

Every time when my friends visit Belgium, I take them to try all kinds of Belgian beers, from Duvel to all the fruit beers. This photo was taken in Brussels, close to the famous Grand Place while meeting up with an old friend of mine.

比利时有一种有名的樱桃酒叫Kriek, 说到比利时啤酒,她也有着很高的地位。Kriek是由一种酸樱桃发酵而成的果味啤酒。我第一次喝还是几年前在苏州月光码头的一家比利时啤酒吧。当时就喜欢上了这个啤酒,酸酸甜甜,非常清爽。来了比利时以后,我更是经常喝。Kriek真是随处可见,路边小超市,卖酒的专门店,任何酒吧……在比利时,喝酒真的非常便宜。我记得在苏州的酒吧里一杯买将近50块,在比利时这里即使在酒吧买也不会超过2.5欧。

只有我有朋友来玩,我就会带他们到处尝各种比利时的啤酒。从最有名的Duvel到各种口味的水果酒,樱桃,蜜桃,红梅,柠檬……这张照片是老朋友来玩的时候,在布鲁塞尔大广场拍的。
