Although I prefer wine in the first place, Duvel is my favourite beer. It's quite strong, with an incomparable taste. You should try it when visiting one of the many cafés in Antwerp! But don't let it take you by surprise...or rather,yes !

Fun Alternatives: Lots of other good Belgian beers!
That is no small beer matter…(Flemish turn of speech)
Strong beers can be a trap!

Stricly for tourists I think. And very popular with German girls, or so I understand :-)
Unique Suggestions: Don't let anyone know you like this beer. Pretend that it's terrible and that you only drink it for a laugh, or say that you have to be "very macho" to drink this beer.
Fun Alternatives: There are hundreds of great beers to choose from in the bars and cafes of Antwerp. Pick something less macho than Banana beer :-)
(thanks to Bigs for the picture of her coveted and much loved banana beer).
Be careful! VT tourists seem to develope weird habbits of photographing another vt-er photographing!
Though it made a lovely photo, please don't waste your time in an Irish Pub when in Antwerp, there are just too many great beer cafes with local flavor and much better beers too.
