I know I’m jumping ahead a bit here, but we had a guest on our honeymoon.  George Bailey-Penguin comes with us wherever we go.  And our honeymoon, I learned, was no different.

By the end of our week in Bruges, George  was being recognised by waiters and bar staff, who asked us, ‘Does he go everywhere with you?’

Apparently so.

Here’s George sampling some Belgian beer, so we didn’t have have to.  But we did anyway.

P1010746

Smiske Extra.

P1010750

Westmalle and Mystic Kriek.  George looks happy.  I’m not so sure.

P1010782

GBP’s favourite Belgian beer is Kwak.  Which is, coincidentally, the easiest beer for a penguin to pronounce.

P1010779

Steenbrugge Wit and Kriek Boon

P1010784

Neil’s favourite beer, Préaris Quadrupel and me, his favourite wife with my new favourite beer, Pecheresse.

P1010785

George and Hercule.  I approve.  My kriek beer, on the other hand, smelled like feet.

P1010803

St Bernadus Abt 12 and Vedett Extra White, the only white beer I’ve had that doesn’t taste like piss.

P1010788

La Chouffe, highly recommended by gnomes … and penguins.

P1010808

Karmeliet Tripel, George says pay no attention to the woman blinking behind the beer.

P1010797

We think this was Duvel … it was a long week.

P1010799

With mussels to soak up the booze.  The fries were good, but not as good as advertised … they haven’t lied to us.

Straffe Hendrik Quadruple and Brugse Zot at De Halve Maan brewery.  The brewery was completely inaccessible, but the beer garden was not.

George Bailey-Penguin reminds you to drink, and blog, responsibly.

What’s your favourite beer?
