Beer Bar in Turnhout - In Den Spytighen Duvel

Turnhout is about a 50 minute train ride from Antwerp, and almost the same by car. The Spytighen Duvel (Mournful Dead) is situated a short walk from the Market place.
Once it opened ( it opened an hour later than listed), the range of beers on offer was, at a guess into the hundreds. Ample seating space, and a friendly atmosphere, it is well worth going to if you are in that neck of the woods.

The Spytighen Duvel means The Mournfoul Devil. (Cf the Duvel beer!)

Remember Catholicism? After church, right to the bar - and back to church the next Sunday.
