What we'll do

We believe the best welcome is having a fresh beer ready for you when you arrive. After a brief introduction of the group, Liselot will start hunting down your beer interests so she knows how to entertain you from the start. A range of different beer styles will be offered, to serve you with the best satisfaction.

Ready to start this interactive beer, sun and water experience! 

The beautiful view inspires lots of stories thanks to historic buildings such as the Graslei tax building or one of Ghent’s 300 medieval breweries. Let’s stop sailing for a second where to introduce you to the legendary Belfry’s dragon to find out its beer-related story. And the dragon isn’t the only mythical figure that you’ll meet during our trip.

When we see the first empty glasses on our table, we’ll try another unique Belgian recipe. We promised a large selection of different tastes, and one is paired with a local delicacy. 

Formula 1 hour – Beer Boat incl. Quiz : 
Oh boy, does time fly when you are having a good time! Half an hour after setting sail, it’s time to start our 30-min beer game, so pick your team and prove to yourself that you are a true zythologist.

Of course, we’ll sip some exclusive local beers in the meantime ! After learning a lot about the Belgian beer culture over the 5 chapters of our challenging beer game, it’s time to wrap up.

Of course, we won’t say goodbye before we know which team got the true zythologist award. The winning team deserves an extra takeaway beer treat. Are any questions left unanswered? Share your doubts with us so the host will only leave you once you’re fully satisfied.

Formula 2 hours – 30 min Hidden gem visit + 1.5 hours Beer Boat incl. Quiz 
Start your journey in a hidden gem, decorated with beer signs to give you the best Belgian beer introduction.  Sip from a local brew you won’t find elsewhere than in Ghent. 
+ extended 90 min. Beer Boat experience 

Please note: you are allowed to take extra snacks on the City boat
