Beer Tour of Belgium – Day 9: Achouffe and Liege

Today was another successful day filled with beer tasting. We drove southwards from Liege to Chouffe to taste beers (and ice cream!) at their Brasserie. From there we backtracked north to Malmedy to visit the Brasserie de Bellevaux. Our third and final brewery for the day was the Val Dieu abbey, just east of Liege. We finished off the day in Liege at the Fete de Wallonie, making friends with some of the people who ran the food booths. It was a night filled with blueberry beer and liquor!
