Namur, Belgium A new beer-centric café that celebrates not only traditional Belgian beer styles and breweries, but regularly showcases the offerings of newer breweries
What it is: From the outside, there’s no mistaking what’s on offer inside Barnabeer. Large windows facing the sidewalk are stacked with beer bottles of various sizes and styles. Inside is a sprawling bar that leads to a large courtyard. Comfortable chairs and solid tables invite long drinking sessions with friends. Edison bulbs and wood give a classic-yet-modern feel to the bar that is helped along by great service.
Why it’s great: Visitors to Belgium can be overwhelmed by beer choice and experience FOMO (fear of missing out) when it comes to trying as much as possible. Pours of various sizes from a diverse lineup of the country’s brewers make sure you can try a little bit of everything from a lot of places. With Barnabeer’s rotating list, it’s hard to stop in for just one. —John Holl
