I'm taking some baby steps towards exploring Belgian beer.
Whenver I drink in the Daily Pint I order Chimay. But, admittedly, that's not all that often.
Then, the other day I went out looking for some PIlsner Urquell (a longshot in my neighborhood liquor store where imported means from Mexico -- which is not a bad thing to this Modelo drinker) and while they had no PUrq, they had a sixer of Stella Artois. (FYI - It was nine bucks for six bottles.)
Which was.is delicious and in a different way than Chimay.
So, I've done a tiny bit of online research and sure enough, the Belgians have an excellent beer repuation. I'm two for two in loving them
Are there bars have a great selection of Belgian beers?
Are there any liquor stores where nice imports from Belgium are discounted?
What other Belgian beers do Chowhounders recommend?
Is there such a thing as Belgian cuisine in Los Angeles -- a Belgian restaurant (that doesn't just server waffles)?
P.S. - I've read the Wikipedia entry on Belgian beer ... but I want Chowhound advice, not encyclopedia advice.
