My first Kwak ever - and naturally in Brussels inside the good café Gecko

This was actually the first picture I took of a couple of beers on the table in Belgium; in the beginning I had never thought about this but lately I found it funny and it gives me also a lot of good memories associated to the situation.

I had been out walking with my friend Jacob in the cold streets of Brussels for the first times in many years, when we saw a strange very student like place; we went in to the bar called Gecko, which is a great cafe and a place where I have been coming many times since.

I remember at this occasion we tasted some of their beers because we found their beer selection huge and very different from what we were used to in Copenhagen; it actually turned out to be pretty small collection compared to other places in the city centre. We had a good soup and some chilli con carne which really gave us the heat back on this cold day.    

If you drink a big Kwak beer in Gent you have to leave your left shoe as deposit for the glass. :-)
