Here’s something kind of different. The Belgian Beer list I subscribe to says the Belgian postal services has published a “limited and temporary edition” of This is Belgium stamps. The sheet of 10 stamps shows various aspects of Belgian food.

But among the stamps are two dedicated to beer, one to Orval the scrumptious Belgian Trappist ale, the other to gueze, the blend of old a new Lambic beer, made with wild yeast, that when properly done is sour, but declicious.

Here are the stamps. Follow this link to order. (Hint, being able to read French is a help, although the site is kind of in English.)
