    All the Belgian beer you can think of. The Trappist are my personal favorites.

    They have too many beers. And I tried to drink all of them. Also the ribs are very good, you'll need the fat to absorb the poison.

    Very nice Belgian bar with nice bartenders, good music and lots of different beers - bottled and on tap. You should try the Duvel Triple Hop, that's the best Duvel around!

    For a place that serves only beer, not impressed with the selection (mostly InBev brewery draft and bottles). Plenty of bars carry more authentic Belgian and craft beers. Price is middle to high.

    Feel like being in Belgium in New York, try BXL East - typical Belgian restaurant menu (try the mussels or the bouchée-à-la-reine) and a good choice of beers (draft or bottle)
