I Just Love Belgium

The signs say:
Schaerbeek Museum of Beer
Health Centre
Medical School Inspection

Of course it's not news to me that beer is medicinal. When I was a young boy my father was in hospital for a while and the man in the next bed was given two bottles of Guiness a day on prescription.

When I was hospitalised briefly I was glad to see that I was offered a choice of wines with my meals.

They'll soon have a bar in the hospital.

True, a glass of red wine a day keeps the doctor away.

It's blue label Chimay for me. Belgium monks, beer and cheese, what more could you ask for?

Yeah, we usually fall into the trap of piss... the trappist beer, that is. I just love this Beer Kingdom.
