Beer tastings

Belgians are proud of their beers

Today, 300 Belgian breweries brew more than 1,500 different beers. Nowhere you find more beer styles and brewing processes together in one country. Belgians can be proud of that.
However, if you are not familiar with Belgian beers, then it is time for an introduction to our rich beer culture. And how can you do this better, than attending a beer tasting among friends or colleagues in a unique location?

Beer tasting ‘Vergulde Fontein’

The scenario is simple. During 2 hours we explore the different beer styles in Belgium and look for the beer that suits you most. We do this on the basis of regional beers or beers with a good story. Meanwhile host Nico explains the brewing process of the beer and its connection with the history of Bruges and / or Belgium.
An excellent formula to end a day in Bruges at a unique location with friends, family or colleagues or to start a nice evening.

We taste max 10 beers (10-15 cl): old brown, hoppy beers, saisons, lambic and gueuze, fruit beers, triples, abbey beers and trappist, quadruple beers.
