A Tip I Got From The Belgians On Beer.

Beer, well I think among country people it is probably the drink of choice after a long days work in the hot summer months. I know it is in this family. My husband is a Belgian and they invented beer, raise their young on beer, and drink it like water.  When you are 12 years old you can go into a Cafe' and have a beer if your parents are present. If you are 16 you can have a beer without them present. Agree or disagree, that is not the point. I am just saying they know their beer and there must be over 300 different kinds here from dark to light and everything in between. Here is a tip I learned from my Belgian guy. If you pour a beer and it goes flat like this one:

All you have to do is get a small piece of cardboard, like tear a piece of the coaster they give you or use a corner off the matches, or just tear a piece off a card board box. Swirl it in your beer a few times and Wa La You have foam. Like this:

I have tried it and it works every time. But I must say the better the beer the better it works. Coors light will have less foam than say a  Stella Artois. If you know your beer you know what I am talking about.

This is my tip of the week. Now back to my favorite beer, Karmeliet a nice blonde beer made by the monks.  Yes this country girl likes beer. Like they say when in Rome or better Belgium, do what Belgian's do, drink lot's of beer.
