Ypres, a small and Gothic-style city in the northern part of Belgium, offers a great taste of the true Belgian tradition. The best way to experience a new environment and make new friends is to do a tour of the cafes and bars around the city. Here are six of the best in which to grab a great drink and mingle with the locals.
If you want to taste the local flavors, then The Times is the perfect place for you. You will have the opportunity to try the famous ‘Trappist Beer’; this beer is legally protected, and the name should only be used for beer brewed by Trappist monks in their monastery. Of all Belgian beers, there are only six Trappists that may bear the name – Achel, Chimay, Orval, Rochefort, Westmalle and Westvleteren. Only these six beers are brewed within the walls of a Trappist abbey. To make the right choice, Alain, the owner, will tell you with great enthusiasm the secrets of the local history and guide you to the best beer to suit your tastes.
