sea nerd blog — arlon

We visited Arlon yesterday. It’s a sleepy little town, a complete contrast to Trier. It does have one key advantage, though: we stopped at a random cafe, ate cheaply, and I drank the local beer. What’s so good about that? Well, the food was very good, but that’s not it. The key word is “local”. You see, Arlon is in Belgium, and the local beer, La Chouffe, lives up to the country’s beer reputation. It was delicious. To cap the day, the town cheeserie had some Shropshire Blue.
