Belgium's National Day


Today is Belgium's National Day, celebrating its independence from the Netherlands in 1830. You may have read that it is in danger of falling apart, with the Flemish speaking Flanders and the French speaking Wallonia, seemingly drifting further and further from each other in both aspiration and attitude.

Constitutional reform seems to be the only hope. It won't affect the beer though will it?
