While Belgium food and drink tours are always popular, our alternative beer tours in Brussels focus on the city’s most celebrated export.

After all, local beer in the city can be purchased at many of the bars and breweries, as well as in the supermarkets or if you have the right contacts - directly from the monasteries!

In the late 18th century, monks fleeing the French Revolution arrived in Belgium and set up their first brewery near Antwerp in 1836. For a beer to have a Trappist label, it has to have been produced in a monastery. Although nowadays you'll find the likes of Westmalle Trappist in many authentic bars and restaurants.
