Uniquely Paired Meals and Beers
One of your favorite moments in life is unwinding with a nice, fresh beer? Or perhaps you enjoy simply sipping a beer from time to time to quench your thirst. But what if you were to actually drink a beer slowly to enjoy the taste, like a good wine? What about savouring the flavours of a new beer with each course served in a restaurant? Enjoy wheat, red, dark or black beer. Sip ale, lambic or lager. Try top fermented, bottom fermented and spontaneously fermented beer. Beers with varying degrees of alcohol content are here for your enjoyment as well. Our advice for you today is to come discover the Mets-Bière meal at Bloempot, where you will be surprised by the luxuriousness and harmony of this experience. These meals will be enjoyed by both men and women alike, and we are certain you will be entirely won over by the idea once you have given it a try. Just wait and see — as your very unique and pleasantly surprising dinner begins to wind down, you will be most certainly asking yourselves when you’ll be able to come back for another such event.
