All for personal use! You should see the garage! A place where you could be trapped but die happy and absolutely pissed! Amazes me that people do the day trip thing to France and where there buy the usual beer that is slightly cheaper than at home. There are so many fantastic beers from France and Belgium (sorry, yet to be convinced about German beers) that are inexpensive makes you wonder why you would travel that far and not try the local stuff. Same goes for other products too. There are some many local cheeses, sausages, biscuits, breads (we still have bread in the freezer from our German trip) to try yet some people just buy what the can get at home for a couple of £s less. I say deprive the locals of their cheese and beer! For us the savings made on the two boxes of Leffe covers the cost of the trip!
