Lots of great suggestions! I am going to do some more research this weekend and then come back to the thread for clarifications.

The tips on reservations required, etc are very helpful!

Ok, skipping Bruges and going to In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst follow by a visit to the Heeren isnít a bad alternative ^^

Why rent a car? There are trains, and a taxi (if need be) from Poperinge to Westvleteren and back canít be *that* much, whereas renting a car will cost time and not be cheap for just a day or two, based on what Iíve heard.

Brussels isnít very beautifull. But it has its good sides, and you lack a lot of time... Iíd say: only do Brussels, do Gent, Brugge and antwerp later on on a second trip. in Brussels, Cantillon is a must see. Pubwise you canít go wrong with Moeder Lambic Fontainas.See the citry centre, lots of great musea

take the bus to the Payottenland (at Brussels Midi, donít know the bus number exactly) Gooik (De Cam) is beautifull, as is Beersel (Oud Beersel+Drie Fonteinen). In Alsemberg there is thevisitors centre for the Lambik, which has gotnice staff and also gives maps of the surrounding countryside. I would suggest walking to Dworp (Hanssens), a very nice walk. Cafť de Zwaan is worth it. Eat in Denderleeuw at De Heeren van Liedekercke

contact the breweries in advance, although Cantillon should never be a problem

cheers!


Agreed with the sentiment that Fri-Sun is precious little time, and staying within Brussels (and the Payottenland if need be on Saturday) is the best way to use the time, rather than spending it either in trains or at a car rental place or in a car. ís what Iíd do.
