Belfry

We spent Christmas 2006 in Brugge. This was the first time we'd spent Christmas abroad, and it was a fantastic experience. It was cold (alot colder than in September!) but the atmosphere was great. The streets were nicely lit, there were stalls selling food and hot drinks and there was ice skating on the Markt. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.

After all the excitement of Christmas Day, it was nice to sit down and relax with a nice Belgian Christmas special beer.

We chose Stille Nacht, a beautiful 12%ABV brew from De Dolle Brouwers.
