    Avalon Europe

    Belgium is a beer-enthusiast’s nirvana, with over 1,500 distinctive original beers, many with their own specially made beer glasses in which that beer, and only that beer, is to be served. The silhouette of each glass is made to augment the flavor of the beer for which it is designed. This stringent beer autonomy may seem like behavior usually reserved for wine snobbery, but Belgians do take their beer seriously – and with good reason. Belgium has taken pride in an incomparable reputation for its specialty beers since the Middle Ages. Connoisseurs prize Belgian beers for their diversity, true flavor and character.
