Beer for beginners and experts

The city centre of Ghent once boasted many breweries. Today brewers seem to have rediscovered Ghent. Small microbreweries and slightly larger city breweries have once again settled in the centre of Gent. The best-know city brewery is Gruut, where herbs are used instead of hops. Discover everything about it in the brewery.
In addition to enthusiastic brewers, you will find plenty of bar keepers, chefs and shop managers in Ghent who can teach you the local beer wisdoms. Want to know the entire history? Guides take you to the best beer places in the city where you can taste for yourself. Experience the beer, here!
