Celebrate Belgian brews at the Bruges Beer Festival

Celebrate Belgian brews at the Bruges Beer Festival

Dating back to the 12th century, Belgian beers have left their culinary mark. Initially brewed with a low-alcohol content, beer was once used as a safer alternative to the country’s available drinking water supply. These days, monks in nearby abbeys, as well as large-scale breweries, have created an amazing array of hoppy deliciousness known around the world.

Have a taste for yourself in the stunning medieval city of Bruges! Celebrating 13 years, the Bruges Beer Festival takes place Feb. 1-2 in the city center marketplace. More than 70 brewers will be on hand with more than 300 varieties to choose from. There are two different tasting packages available: a commemorative tasting glass and five tasting tokens (one token equals one taste) for 15 euros; or for 30 euros, you will receive the glass, a comprehensive beer guide and 11 tasting tokens. Single tokens may be purchased for 1.80 euros.
