Belgian Beer

Belgium, the home of the European Union, waffles, and damn good chocolate has a land area of only 30,528 km² – less than half that of Tasmania. Despite its diminutive territory Belgium is the forth largest brewing nation in Europe with an estimated 125 breweries in operation putting it behind only Germany, the United Kingdom and France despite all three having at least six times the population. It’s not Belgium’s output that is impressive, however, but rather the myriad traditional styles that are still available to this day.
