I am going to force myself to type something positive even though I really want to type something negative. The positive thing is that my negativity does not stem from my personal life. But, I guess, that is the case with most people right now. So, here goes.
I never thought I would love drinking beer. Then again, the beer I knew growing up was swill: either European stuff that was meant to get you drunk or American stuff that had as much flavor profile as the cardboard box it came in. I thought I would not have a taste for it; that is until I had a short stint as a beer buyer at my place of employ. It's kinda like wine. You have to try a lot to learn how to taste it. And like wine, I enjoy the lighter stuff. Not calorie-wise. I prefer the pale ales. My suggestions: Delirium Tremens, PorkSlap, Blue Moon. If you want something more caramel-like and deeper in flavor try Delirium Noctornum or something if you want something more amber try De Koninck.
There is a restaurant in the City called Markt
. They sell a lot of great beers
. I highly suggest you sit by the bar and down a few. I also highly suggest their moules and frites. Always a tasty good time. My friend Janice and I have spent a few evenings there imbibing and dining.
So there, I wrote something positive. As a matter of fact, I have no plans tomorrow after I teach my classes, so I may just stop by the bar at Markt for lunch and enjoy some time being by myself. Later.
