What we'll do

Liselot will welcome you on board with a traditional Belgian beer ready to spoil you.  Make yourself comfortable as you’ll only need to enjoy and listen to your guide so she can share with you all her beer stories. Savour different styles of Belgian brews while exploring the countryside landscapes. You can pass your playlist to the deejay and we’ll provide good tunes.

Mind starts getting clearer after 1h away from the busy city center so it’s time for a bit of interaction. Medieval stories, brewing itineraries and tastings descriptions are part of Liselot’s presentation but then it’s your turn. Choose your team and participate in a challenging beer game which will include questions like “What are Triples?”, “What’s the difference between Trappist and an Abbey beer?”, “Which beer is the last creation of brewery X?”, etc

Of course, Liselot is taking care of the tasters at the same time. After a sour, a bitter and a sweet taster, she’ll surprise you with Ghent’s most exclusive exemplar. Chilling, tasting, or a combination of both will all be fine by your guide. As long as you are having a good time!  After learning lots 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 award of the true zythologist. The winning team deserves an extra beer treat. Any other question that’s not answered?  Share your doubts with us so the host will only leave you once you’re fully satisfied.

FYI: People are not allowed to take their own snack
