If you're ever in Ieper (Ypres), as well as the Menin Gate, you really must visit De Hopperei on Diksmuidestraat. A wonderful bar with 7 draught beers and 350 bottled beers. Maybe a Snug outing next year?!!

Anyway enough, what's on the bar at the moment. We have:

Three Peaks-Pen y Gent 3.8%
Potbelly-Beijing Black 4.4%
Lymestone-Stonefaced 4%
Clark's-Tommy Gun 4.3% (WW1 commemorative brew)

In other news we will be introducing a new cider, new to us, from Gwent y Ddraig tomorrow. In July we are expecting a delivery of beers from the Stone Brewing Co in San Diego. Watch this space for news on this and other bottled beer developments.
