[b][u]Het Brouwershuis, Grote Markt te Brussel[/u][/b]

Thousands had gathered at the Grand Place in front of the Brewers' House at Gulden Boom, where the Unie van de Belgische Brouwers had its headquarters. The Union of Belgian Brewers, uniting all secular Belgian breweries, is one of the oldest professional associations in the world, being the civilian counterparty to the government-owned alcohol industry. Its most important task is to defend the general interests of the brewery sector in the economic, social and ethical spheres, acting as official spokesman of the brewers with regional, national, international and European authorities. Its action covers all sectors of importance for the brewing industry and is directed in particular at economic, social, national and international regulations, fiscal and legal affairs, agricultural problems and activities for the promotion of beer. This was a very important function, for it helped the Germanic beer industry, one of the few strong economies in the recession that the Union was facing, remain competitive. The building had Baroque and Flemish decorative elements merge in the façade, with an equestrian statue on top.

The people had gathered for one of the largest combinations of food festivals. The Francophones who had moved south during the division of Belgian had slowly started returning to Brussels, bringing with them the "lost" skills of chocolate-making and French cuisine, restoring the greatness of Belgian cooking that had been smothered under the domination of the northern Flemish. To celebrate the return of Belgian multiculturalism, the Brussels Beer Festival was held early, along with the Chocolate Fesitval and a Waffles Fair.

Emma, the chairperson of the Brewers as well as the head of the Association of the Belgian Chocolatiers and Confectioners, appeared in front of the people holding up a glass of beer along with a waffle and chocolate, her short blond hair shining like the sunrays in the bright June sun.

"After the ups and downs that the region of Belgium had undergone in the face of various nationalisms, the Low Countries have finally been reunified, combining our various virtures for the benefit of the Fatherland. As a symbol of the lasting union that will be a cornerstone of the Volk, I open the Brussels Beer and Confectionaries Festival!

Boire! Mange! Il y a des choses delicieux partout!"

With this, the greatest beer festival in Western Europe began, accompanied by the chocolate and waffle festivals.


OOC: Basically, a thread for RPing the Belgian food industry. Have fun with the beer and various confectionaries, and be sure to do all your orders of the famous chocolates here :)

The United Federation of the East and Austria issue the following ultimatum. Great Belgian Beer is the finest tasting thing on the planet. Crudely drawn pedophilia inspired anime is among the poorest tastes on the planet. Thusly your organization is an affront to good taste. Disband or be neutron bombed into submission.

British beer tasters promptly got drunk and stocked on chocolate before promptly getting the hell out of dodge after the UFE's announcement.

[b]Port Sudan[/b]

Gentleman Johnny Germaine's fax machine begins to whine. A picture of the brewery in question and the single word of Dengali below it pops out. Germaine looks at the picture, looks at the word, and promptly asks, "What in the hell is this?"

He picks up his cellphone and calls an unlisted number and says,"Dengali?"

"Si senor, we needs the building to go adious!" the man on other other end says.

"Location?"

"Brussels senor!"

"Compensation?"

"5 million cash senor!"

"Preferred method of removal?"

"Loud and obnoxious senor!"

"Ok, will get right on it," Germaine replies as he hangs up the phone and motions for his secretary to join him.

On the other end of the phone a very drunk Denard, an equally liquored up Dellion, and a few other comedians of the Austrian Legion go back to playing Butt Darts. Dellion manages to ask, quite drunkenly, "Hahah You think he bought it?"

Denard replies, "ShadddUP YOU! YOUR TURN TO GO! HURRRY UP!" and passes out face down on the floor.

Back in Port Sudan, Germaine calls in three men. They are his least trusted and most disposable men. In fact they are the sort of men he's never even spoken to in person before. At this very moment he's not even speaking to them. He's using a third party in the form of a retired Legion Master Sergeant, who is hand carrying a message that was delivered to him by a retired Legion Corporal, who given the message by a random bum on the street.

The older of the three men opens the message and reads. He looks to the other two and says, "Brussels? 1 million total split three ways to blow up a brewery?"

"Truly the work of Allah!"

"Yes, Allah wills it!" the third man says as they rush home to load up their personal items and prayer rugs to board the next flight to Europe.

The Portland Microbrewers Union would not allow Belgian beer to be sold in Cascadia wholesale, instead, any imported beer would have to be shipped.

They would also like to make a statement to the Austrians, who spoke of Pabst. "We will not allow Pabst to be sold within these borders again, lest the hipsters flood Portland."

"We hope you have a very good reason to place restrictions on certain products. If not, we'll respond with the exact same reasoning."

The chairman of the PMBU laughed at the statement, "We allow the beer to be imported at retail prices only, it's not like we're blocking it from the country. Any non-commonwealth produced product that we can just as easily produce here has that restriction, of course, aside from connisuer ((cba to spell it right)) products like wine, cheese, and certain electronics."

The Athenian Federation backs this statement.

An official Government investigation has been launched in order to investigate the Brüssels area, in which for no apparent reason the eye-to-crania ratio seems to have reached disproportionate proportions.

[i]"We do not know why most of the people seen in this event have abnormally large heads with extremely large eyes. We are going to simultaneously conduct genetic research as well as screening for ambiental factors. Some suggested that it might be a form of hydrocephalia, but the subjects do not manifest other symptoms."[/i] - said de Keizer

More researchers were sent to the food providers, considering that perhaps a chemical used for the elaboration of some of the items might be at fault. The Althing is firmly commited to getting to the bottom of this "Megaoptic Syndrome", understanding it, and in the future preventing it.

"Allah wills us to do this deed," Salam Hakim says quietly.

"Death to the infidels?" Ackbar asks.

"Yes, death to the infidels," Charles replies.

The three men quietly walk down a side street in Brussels. Their appearance wouldn't mark them as followers of the true faith. If anything their appearance would seem almost Spanish looking in nature. A certain lack of weapons troubles them and they are walking and talking amongst themselves to attempt to create a means of attacking the convention to destroy the beer dispensing sinners and pork eating unfaithful.

"Chemicals?" Charles asks.

"Look Schultz, not everything can be solved by mixing kitchen chemicals," Ackbar snorts.

"Well, almost everything," Salam comments.

"You boys thinking what I'm thinking?" Charles asks.

"Allah provides, let us go shopping, Walmart anyone?" Salam asks.

"Yes, Walmart," Ackbar responds.
