I don't visit as often as I would like, but I love sipping the barrel-aged spontaneously fermented wild & sour ales at the taproom at the Referend Bier Blendery. The indoor picnic table theme and the flavours of the ales invites one to bring a basket of deli cheeses, crackers and grapes. Some of the tables can seat up to eight encouraging you to bring along some close friends.

You sit surrounded by wine barrels while vinyl spins on the turntable.

The Referend specializes in the production of spontaneously fermented beers, as practised by ancient cultures and ushered into modernity by the lambic brewers of Belgium's Pajottenland.
