Dulle Griet

The Dulle Griet is simply the place that all beer enthusiasts must go to if in Gent. The large brick bar is superbly decorated and the ceiling has a number of hanging bits and pieces including some macabre effigies of people hanging by their necks. The most well known article hanging from the ceiling is a wire basket with a bell attached to it. Look closer and you will see that it has a pulley attached which runs behind the bar. For about 9 Euro they will serve you with a 1.2 litre MAX house beer that comes in a large round-bottomed Kwak style glass, complete with wooden stand. There is a catch though because as a ransom for the glass you will have to surrender one of your shoes which gets placed in the wire basket and hauled back up to the ceiling. You get your shoe back when you return the glass intact. A word of warning, it is difficult to drink out of these glasses so unless you want to risk walking home with one shoe don't try it after a long drinking session
