Thé beer spot of Ghent with more than 300 beers.
Beer spot in the shadow of our Sint-Jacobs church in the heart of Ghent.
Already more than 30 years, this bar is a safe bet in the beer scene in Ghent. With their large selection of local beers and a basement that date back from the 15th Century, they can be awarded as a real, authentic, ancient brown beer.
Not just a lager or a pintje, but only top-quality Belgian specialty beers where you can have a quiet, intimate chat.
Btw: The wife of the first owner came from Scandinavia: You have any idea which Belgian beer has a link with the specialty of Scandinavia?

Craft microbrewery with rebellious brews
In the heart of the city, the Patershol neighbourhood is home to microbrewery Brouwbar.

From a sparkling saison to a powerful hoppy beer, be surprised by the wide variety of brews! The brewers will gladly give some information about their beers or the way the brewery operates.

Cour Saint George
Authentic bistro opposite the Town Hall
The guild of Saint George was one of Ghent’s guilds of guards, which protected the city and sometimes fought alongside the counts of Flanders. The guild had this building erected in the 15th century. This ensured that the military powers were located close to the economic (the Cloth Hall) and political powers (the Belfry and the Town Hall). The stepped gable is adorned with the patron saint of the guild, Saint George, killing the dragon.

Heavenly pizza and glorious beers
A pizzeria with a twist. The dough is made with Duvel brewer’s yeast and the pizzas feature surprising combination of toppings. The interior of this former 17th-century inn still features the original bricks.
