The Growler List: 125 Places to Have a Beer Before You Die

Beer

All about beer posted “The Growler List“.
It’s a listing off their top 125 favorite beer places in the world, and of course there are also some Belgian bars on the list:

  • 2. Grand Place, Brussels, Belgium
  • 7. Abbaye de Notre-Dame d’Orval, Orval, Belgium
  • 66. Delerium Café, Brussels, Belgium
  • 74. De Hopduvel, Antwerp, Belgium
  • 78. Halve Maan Brewery, Bruges, Belgium
  • 80. Le Bier Circus, Brussels, Belgium
  • 90. Cantillon Brewery and Gueuze Museum, Belgium
  • 93. Bruxellensis Festival of Characterful Beers, Brussels, Belgium
  • 112. t’Bruges Biertja, Bruges, Belgium

Although Belgium gets mentioned 9 times out of the 125 places, I still think they should have included “De oude markt in Leuven“, The biggest bar in Western Europe, and my Hometown Hoegaarden.

Movie Review: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Movies and TV shows

We had to wait 19 years for this 4th release in the Indian Jones franchise (like so many people, I bought the trilogy on DVD, thinking it was a complete set), but Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones is back!

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull really takes us back to the good old days, and I must say, I loved it! The whole 2hours and 4 minutes of it! I went back in time and into the future again.
Not everybody agrees with me, and although sometimes it really showed they were shooting in a studio instead of on location, it really catches the vibe you’d expect from an Indiana Jones movie: the thrills, the bull whipping , ancient secrets, hidden treasures, native people with blowpipes and the typical Indy humor.

A must see for all Indiana Jones fans!
