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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Part two includes a visit to the legendary Drie Founteinen to meet with Armand, one of the greatest brewers and blenders to ever live. He and his amazing wife Lydie were such wonderful hosts.
From there, it was on to Brugge, where amongst the beautiful sites resides a hidden gem of a bar called de Kelk... visit it!
Please enjoy and sante!
