    Ron, if that is your button: please try once if you can : "Duvel" and "Palm" , the first is a real devel: bitter but sweet after the drink and the second is very sweet constantly :D

    http://www.duvel.be/
    http://palm.glow.nl/ (not original website but it's nicer)

    p.s. I don't drink a lot but if I drink, I choose these two.

    enjoy

    I heard that in the States a Belgian bear costs like 5-10$...In Belgium is that like 2.5$ and then you'll have a Duvel which is highly regarded around here :)

    can you confirm the price over at Houston?

    Now if I can count that means for 1 beer @ 250ml = 7,19$/3 = 2.4$

    to be honest that's the price here too except if you buy them in the shop.
    I like Miller though too, tried it a few times @ a poolbar.

    Hey Guys,
    I was quite surprised to see these on sale (for $5!) at my local, last Friday night!

    Actually, there are some darn good beers brewed here by regional brewers
    Craft breweries. A lot of them have won awards in International contests.
    You just have to look.

    Hi, :D

    I have been drinking Belgian beers ONLY for some time now ........... mostly Stella, Hoegaarden, & Leffe !! :D

    However, I have not seen Duvel, as yet, here in Canada. :(

    Belgium or ......... " The Land Of Beer " proves ........ at least in this case, that experience produces quality.

    HR :cool:
