In Bruges

I watched In Bruges the other night. I started watching hoping to catch a reference or two to Belgian beer and got hooked. Bruges is a medieval Belgian city with gothic churches, old architecture, and small plazas, all built around a canal system. The movie pays homage to the city's charm and it would be a must stop on a Belgian beer tour. There were a few scenes with Belgian beer, and in each the beers were in a beer-specific glasses, most of which were chalices. The movie takes place just before Christmas, and one scene has two actors sitting in a plaza at night drinking their chalices of beer, apparently oblivious to the cold of a Northern European winter. This movie makes you want to visit Bruges and have a chalice of a Belgian tripel.
