Wandering Around Brussels Centrum

When visiting European cities, it is common to walk through a crowded square, and the well-preserved ones would be surrounded by stylish historical buildings. Brussels Grand Plaza is one of the best examples of a historical square, and the buildings that surround the square makes the place very attractive to visitors which are a combination of Gothic and Neo-Classic style buildings.

I have been traveling to Belgium since I was sixteen and the centrum of Brussels is the most beautiful town square that I have encountered so far. The center is always lively day and night which makes me excited anytime I pass there. The old buildings are so attractive that I cannot take my eyes out of them. The buildings are so stylish, decorated with great sculptures and engravings that I am so impressed of the architects of these buildings.

Drinkers Pub, the Oldskool beer factory in Eindhoven

This weekend was enjoyable in Eindhoven despite of the cold and rain. On Saturday evening, I have headed toward Kerkstraat to meet to try out a brewery called “Drinkers Pub, the Oldskool beer factory”.  As it could be understood from the name, Oldskool is a brewery located inside the pub.  

Oldskool  is a Dutch brewery which values brewing beers in a classical way more German and British way, without herbs and sugar.  Their motto is “Specialty beers are good, but craft beers are better.” Recently it is serving its beers for beer-lovers since 2013. From the outside, it is difficult to guess presence of a brewery inside. (more…)
