Belgium — Part One

In what seems like a lifetime ago, I had the opportunity to document a trip to Belgium (and a tiny bit of northern France) with the owner/founder of Hill Farmstead Brewery, Shaun E. Hill, as well as the owner/founder of Three Penny Taproom, Scott Kerner, and the owner/founder of the soon-to-be-open Suarez Family Brewery, Dan Suarez. My camera slung across my shoulder like a bandolier, I shot thousands of frames over the course of seven days, taking in landscapes, beer and brewing, tradition, happy travel.

Looking back, it was one of the most enjoyable week's I can remember. Travel, beer, food, new friends, amazing hospitality... everything that nourishes a human soul. I'm breaking these up over several posts for easier enjoyment and viewing. If you are interested in prints of these, please contact me at info@bmmimages.com for more information.

Part one includes the arrival day and a special visit to Cantillon, where we were hosted so generously and wonderfully by Jean van Roy, who has become a great friend over the years.

Dear Belgium,

I look forward to a return someday. So much more to see, so many friends to embrace.

Please enjoy and sante!
