Trappist Tour in Progress...
The Lonely Monks Trappist Tour is entering its final day. We've covered a lot of ground, visited a lot of beery places and tasted some world-class beers. I had intended on blogging along the way, but there just has not been time or access to a computer. I'll spend some time writing about both tours when I get back. In the meantime, follow Bryan Falman's Tweets ( twitter.com/beerodyssey) to see current pics and updates. We have six Trappist Abbeys down and one to go: Westvleteren! Tomorrow morning we also tour the In Flanders Field WWI Museum in Iepers, where we are spending the night tonight. Tonight we attended the famous WWI Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate. The tour is drawing to a close, but these great memories with a great bunch of beer hunters will last forever! Above is also a pic of part of the group touring the brewery at Orval.
