    The bar we went into in Ghent had a good beer menu. Below is a small selection.

    We spent a few days in Ghent visiting many bars and which was my first serious tasting of the wonders of Belgian beer. Sadly I didn't take notes at the time , so have had to repeat many of the tastings. Our motorbike tour took in Ghent, Ypres (a stunningly beautiful town rebuilt after being flattened by shelling in the Great War, then to the Ardennes. Subsequent trip took in Bruges.

    I really like Belgium.

    One could argue "best beer in the world" till the cows home home but I'd need a lot of convincing it wasn't from Belgium

    We are going back to Ghent in July. We have some unfinished business there. We only got through a few on the first page.:cheers:

    Brew by Numbers 55, a double IPA that they only sell by the half. 2 X 1/2 = 1. So it's a single IPA.

    Can you not just ask for two halves in a pint pot?

    I asked for a half for my invisible friend but apparently she didn't look old enough.

    Aye, 8.2%. but as I'm in my 60s I should be able to choose.

    But moving on, I'm now on another BBNo, a black IPA, which is numbered 11, therefore a fifth of the 55 DIPA. Looks bigger though ...

    Pork cheeks are such a great cut as long as you cook them slowly; cheap as well. I've got a load of Ribs but you need a decent sized rack (calling @Fnaar ;)) as there's not a lot of meat on them. NOPI (by Ottolenghi has good recipes for both in it). Death is a cracking beer, currently on tap at Fell Penrith and I thoroughly enjoyed asking for a half of death:okay: t'other need. On my last visit to Glasgow, I had a 16.5% IPA (Anarchist Alchemist) at Brewdog Kelvingrove...who let the dogs out?:wacko::cheers:The Ferrous Red from Merchant City Brewing, also based in Glasgow, was a most excellent malty red lager -have a Dunkel in this one. Plus I got a load of Beavertown 8 Ball and Goose Island Urban Wheat in Yellow Sticker Land.

    Well @deptfordmarmoset

    The Paradize is bloody lovely

    I love blackberries and there is a subtle hint with this

    Highly recommended

    Howling Hops Street Porter. Nicely roasted barley that's almost bitter but seems to veer off into coffee and licorice territory before it bites. I like it
