Bourgogne des Flandres Brewery, Brugge

Bourgogne des Flandres Brewery, Brugge

Bourgogne des Flandres brews its distinct Bourgogne des Flandres Pure brew on site. It is blended with Timmerman's Brewery lambic, which ages for eight months in wooden barrels. This produces a red-brown brew that features a low alcohol content and rich finish.

The Bourgogne des Flandres Pure does not have added yeast; instead, the alcohol content is created by spontaneous fermentation. After the beer is brewed, the wort cools down in an open-air basin. Wild yeasts in the air then mix with the wort, which ferments spontaneously.

Visitors are welcome to visit the brewery and Ale House. You can smell the rich brew throughout the brewery and watch the craft brewers at work.

Visitors can find out about the brewing process and learn more about hops. In addition, visitors can learn how beer is tapped and can even test their skills using a digital video interface. You can also have a custom bottle created featuring your picture.

Kids are welcome to join the tour. While they won't be sampling the beer, they'll love seeing the brewery process.
