I’ve been stocking up on beer and chocolate at one of the best stops on Chorlton’s ever expanding deli circuit: the Belgian Belly.
It’s a modest place with just four tables (two outside). But I suspect there’s a lot of business going on online. People really do travel considerable distances to get here, because the Belgian Belly sells beers you simply won’t find anywhere else. Many come from microbrewers who don’t have the capacity to brew in bulk and use varieties of ingredient that aren’t available in large quantities. So you really aren’t likely to find this stuff anywhere else. And it’s almost all bottle conditioned.
You won’t find shelves heavy with hundreds of different beers, but you will find a well representative sample.
Family run, there’s always someone on hand to guide you to a beer — or chocolate — to suit.
