Pearls in the oyster: Mi orge mi houblon, Arlon

This series of profiles of specialist beer retailers first ran in Beers of the World, until that magazine folded in 2009. All the original magazine articles are now archived here, and I’m adding new retailers on an occasional basis. I’ve indicated the approximate date the article was researched: details and ranges do change and shops can move or go out of business so do check the website shown or give them a call before making a special trip.
