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?’
Here’s George sampling some Belgian beer, so we didn’t have have to. But we did anyway.
GBP’s favourite Belgian beer is Kwak. Which is, coincidentally, the easiest beer for a penguin to pronounce.
George and Hercule. I approve. My kriek beer, on the other hand, smelled like feet.
La Chouffe, highly recommended by gnomes … and penguins.
Karmeliet Tripel, George says pay no attention to the woman blinking behind the beer.
We think this was Duvel … it was a long week.
With mussels to soak up the booze. The fries were good, but not as good as advertised … they haven’t lied to us.
George Bailey-Penguin reminds you to drink, and blog, responsibly.
What’s your favourite beer?
