My name is Liselot, I am from Bruges and I studied in Ghent (a city as beautiful as Bruges). I now live in Brussels.
In 2014, I launched one of Ghent’s first craft beers called Crabbelaer, which quickly grew in popularity as a much loved brew on the Belgian beer scene.
In a traditionally male industry, I am one of the few women with deep knowledge about the amazing world of Belgian beer.
It only really started to tickle when I noticed that I wanted to share my passion for beer and Belgian culture with so many more people than bars, restaurants and beer-colleagues. It became a fact: i need to share my knowledge with all beer lovers: from tourists to group activities. And in 2016 Belgiumbeerdays was born, which in 2020 has changed to BeerSecret.
In a fun and entertaining way, there’s nothing I love more than talking about the city, our culture and history of Belgian beers, so much so that it’s my full-time life’s work! Join me and together let’s discover your favourite Belgian beer!
Come at the start of your trip and I’ll share all the insider tips on what to see and do in Brussels, Bruges, Ghent and beyond.
It happened to me some times that the wife is just joining her husband to do him a favour. But at the end of the tour, she can’t believe how much she actually likes beers: this is another reason I’m doing these tours! I want to introduce everyone as much as possible to open their mind and discover our fantastic beer world.

In 2021, I was the moderator for the Toer de Geuze Online Edition.
Because of Covid, the physical event could not take place, but with a small camera crew we went out to all the lambic and gueuze producers where we recorded all kinds of fascinating interviews.
It became an educational week full of storytelling and tastings.
For the live edition, I was asked to host the event.
For those who are interested, all the live recordings can be found at www.toerdegeuze.be
Toer de Geuze is a bi-annual beer event, organized by Horal where all the lambic brewers and geuze brewers open their doors to the public. Fervent beer lovers from all over the world come to our beautiful Zennevallei region.
A collaboration with Visit Flanders.
I can call myself an active player in this Belgian beer world. To create content for my first website, I interviewed lots of breweries during a B2B brewery exposition. Since then, they all became my lovely friends who I still visit time to time.
