Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport will soon house the first-ever US outpost of Belgian Beer Cafe. The bar, which starts service later this month across from gate F03 in the new international terminal, is one in a series of what the company is calling "transit locations." Opening September 20, the cafe will have not only Belgian beers but also a full bar and a Belgian-inspired menu comprised of dishes broken into sections ranging from "hoppetizers," like waffles with green herbs and asparagus mousse, to dessert. The five beers on draft at the Atlanta location are Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Leffe Blonde, Chimay Blue, and Omer Traditional Blonde.
The Belgian Beer Cafe chain, which is also about to expand into Canada, currently has locations in the Netherlands, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Japan, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, and ten other countries. A home in the Newark Liberty International Airport is next up for the United States after the Atlanta restaurant opens, followed by two more in New York next spring.
