Previously from this brewery: Their own St. Stefanus Grand Cru, and house beers they produce for bars: de Garre, Klokke Roeland, and Monk's Flemish Sour
After spending our first night in Ghent (great town, by the way), the next morning the Beercycling crew was headed north to Brouwerij Van Steenberge. In a trip filled with behind the scenes access to brewers and brewery owners, this one may have taken the cake. The father-in-law of the current owner gave us the least safe, most in-the-machinery tour of the trip, and we drank beer with the owner, all of which made for a truly unique experience. More about that soon enough....

Thing to Think About Today:
Yes, I dropped a Counting Crows reference in this post title. You don't get that here, I regret to inform you. As August(ijn) turns to September, sweater weather is soon to follow. The other song currently rolling around in my head: Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood. Hey, it's a close of a connection as I can make, and I fully admit it's not a great one.
"One love, two mouths / One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse / Just us, you find out"
