It is quite an impressive list, my guess before this post was around 50, so it is even more than I thought. And if I made a list of the beers I had tasted before I came to Belgium, I think it would not have more than 5 entries… So this number is a result of three things: 1) I try to integrate well (which also reflects clearly in my chocolate consumption), 2) Belgian beers are quite good (which translates to really great, but – originally – I am not  a big beer-drinker, so do not expect those high emotional words from me when I am talking about beer), 3) the culture of beer-drinking is much more evolved, richer and more important (in a social way) here than in Hungary. Now it’s getting harder to taste new kinds in a normal bar, but I am still far from running out of possibilities…

    Nem feltétlenül a durva másnaposságra céloztam, de mondjuk ha iszom 4 sört (és mind a 4 új), azt már nem tudom megjegyezni… Különben belga kolléganőd mikor itt volt, felírt egy új sört, akkor is néztem egyet, hogy ez biztos vmi belga szokás… :)
