All these questions, and many more, will be answered during this bike tour, dedicated to the remarkable brewing heritage of Brussels. Belgian beer culture, featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage list since 2016, is amazingly vast, and well-present in Brussels.

Starting from the Maison des Brasseurs on the Grand Place, we will discover both old and new breweries, as well as many of the infamous bars which dot the city centre. Afterward we head to the canal district, with its old industrial breweries, to reach the Brussels Gueuze Museum and the Cantillon brewery.

We will charge a supplement of €4.50 to visit the Cantillon brewery.
