Just back from a Europe trip. In Amsterdam, check out In de Wildeman - over 200 bottled beers and 17 on tap. In Brussels, Delirium Cafe is a must visit. Guinness record holder for the most beers available - over 2,000! 25 on tap.

From Brussels, you can make a day trip to Bruges and visit the De Halve Maan brewery (fun) and also make a train stop in Gent to visit Brouwerij Huyghe, home of the famous Delirium Tremens - world beer champion in 1998.

Nice, I'll check out the places mentioned outside of Brussels. I'm hoping they have public trans out that way. In de wildeman looks badass. Thanks!

Brussels is a great place to drink beer, agreed Cantillon is well worth a stop. Good Beer Guide Belgium is the guide to get.

The trip was awesome. Had some amazing beers. I lost a day in Brussels due to food poisoning and ended up missing out on some good stuff, but Amsterdam had some amazing breweries and pubs. Thanks for all the suggestions. Cafe Gollem rocked! We hit up some amazing microbrews in Copenhagen. I highly recommend a little place called Brewpub. They had some really great beers on tap. I'm working on getting pics into photobucket.

Next time, if you can make it to Cologne, it's definitely a must-do stop - well worth going out of your way for. It has one of Europe's most unique beer cultures and is a magnificent city. Try the Frueh and Muehlen pubs there.
And, if you are so inclined, Düsseldorf with its Alt beers is just downriver.

Try to make it during the Karneval season, and it's like being on another planet - imagine a million people in costumes parading through the city, singing and drinking Koelsch and Appelkorn. Blows Oktoberfest out of the water.

I really wanted to visit these places too. Sadly, time didn't permit that.

Here's the first set of pics from Copenhagen!

Let me know if it doesn't work.
