Ding ding ding. Rochefort, Belgium. Couldn't get into the Abbey to watch the monks brew but we had some beers in town and then some more at the train station in Jemelle. For a train station it had an awesome beer menu and the bartender was cool as hell. He kept bringing local wursts to the table and gave us a free bottle of Orval and Chimay each. If you're ever going through Belgium stop at Jemelle's train station and visit the stout, cheerful Belgian bartender with the mullet.

Some pix from the station:

the menu



some local brews made about 2 km away from Jemelle

How was the selection at the Oktoberfest? Was it mainly mass produced stuff?

The big six was all I saw. My favorite was Augustiner, by far. The Hofbrau was pretty meh. Lowenbrau was somewhat meh as well but their tent was a lot of fun.
