Some people’s idea of a beer adventure is checking out that pub two streets over from the local. The true beer connoisseur, however, is a different breed. Designed with the fancy suds aficionado in mind, this 8-day trip takes you to the ancestral home of Trappist, one of the world’s finest brewers. In Belgium, you’ll visit the six Trappist monastery-breweries in Belgium (including the chance to taste Westvleteren, one of beerdom’s most celebrated brews), explore Brussels and Bruges, and stuff yourself with mussels, waffles and chocolate galore. (Hey, beer-tasting is hungry work.)
