Pop over to Poperinge
Tucked away in the Belgian province of West Flanders is the small town (about 20,000 residents) of Poperinge, almost touching the French border.

I went there to visit the Hop Museum and the area produces around 80% of Belgium's hop crop. If you're a beer lover, then you know this is a fact: no hops = no beer.

Every September the town holds the annual Hop Festival to celebrate the harvest, just has they have done (celebrating hops, that is) for centuries.

An interesting fact: Poperinge also the home to Belgium's very first astronaut - Dirk Frimout.
