Beer and breweries in Brussels

Do you know the difference between a blanche and a pils? What is the distinctive characteristic of a lambic? How many breweries are there in the capital? Why are hops used in the brewing process? You will find the answers to all of these questions on this bicycle tour dedicated to Brussels’s brewing heritage. Included on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2016, Belgian beer culture is very much in evidence in Brussels. The walking tour will begin at the Brewers’ Guild House on the Grand Place, travelling on to some old and new breweries, as well as to many of the countless bars that still dot the city centre. The tour will then head towards the canal neighbourhood and its former industrial breweries, to arrive at the Cantillon Brewery. The visit to this craft brewery, renowned for its lambic beer, will be another highlight of the walk! Let’s drink to Brussels’s culture!

A partnership between Pro Velo and the Brussels Gueuze Museum.
