May I ask what bar and when they're having this? Baltimore is not too far of a trip from here and it may be something I would be interested in doing.

There are 2 places here with around 100 Belgians, which is great since most of the beer places here suck.

The strategy I use when drinking at those places is to avoid anything I can get at a store. If you can get it at a store, you can drink it at home. Drink the unusual ones you never see in the store.

That being said, there's a ton on that list I've never even heard of. Hopefully the menu has some info so you can make an informed decision.

Enjoy!

Definitely try the Scaldis beers. They are dynamite.

Anyone been to the Fest yet? I'll be there around 4pm today, hoping it's not completely crazy.

I've heard Cantillon is amazing, I'd love to try their beers.

The De Glazen Toren Canaster is my favorite scotch ale. Their saison is very good, too.

That would put me into a coma if I tried to sample each one. Would be a great coma though.
