This weeks word is CAN
Maybe you know that Belgium is the biggest beer producer in Europe.
There are approximately 125 breweries in the country, producing about 500 standard beers. When special one-off beers are included, the total number of brands of Belgian beer exceeds 1000.
Of course the special beers are not sold in cans but like wine in bottles. The most popular once are Jupiler, Stella-Artois, and Maes and you can buy them in cans or bottles.
About 100 km from Brussels in Lustin near Namur is a Beer museum.
18.000 bottles of Belgian beer and other items about Belgian beers, like glasses, posters etc are exposed here.
There you can try and buy more then 800 brands of beers and drink about 11 on tap.
The museum also exposes a book with more than 16.000 Belgian beer names and their breweries !
And to give you an idea you have the whole list of Belgian Beers here !
