Bollekes

Two bolleke of Antwerp’s favorite, De Koninck. For anyone local, “this is the standard by which all other beers are measured” [1].

The scene is De Pelgrim, which, in the words of Michael Jackson, is “[t]he best place to sample it on draught”. Sadly, we missed the yeast shots.

The brewery dates back to 1830s and is part of the association for Belgian Family Brewers.
