Belgian beer experience from the boat to the brewery!
For groups of beer lovers who are interested in meeting a craft brewer, like to taste different styles of beers and want to discover Ghent in a relaxed way at your arrival, our beer experience will satisfy you with an afternoon full of surprises. Your beer finds its way from the boat, to a brewery where to start your evening on the beautiful canal.
Ideal for groups from 7 persons who like to have an upscaled beer experience for a whole afternoon. This is a great tour for team-building too!
Personalise your own tour with your own private guide. Also recommendable for groups from 10 persons.
Liselot will welcome you on board with a traditional Belgian beer cause she knows how to spoil you. Make yourself comfortable as you’ll only need to listen to your guide while she shares with you all her beer stories. Savour different styles of Belgian brews while enjoying the countryside landscape. You can even pass your playlist to the deejay and we’ll provide good tunes.
Mind starts getting cleared after a certain time away from the busy city center so it’s time for our brewery tour! From a distance, you’ll be able to see the brewer waiting for you who’s excited to welcome you at his brew atelier. At arrival, expect a 1h tour guide showing you the entire location from the mashing brew kettle until the bottling. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to see the moment of the brewing or bottling (fun fact:some of our clients got to bottle their own beer!), maybe you’ll see how barrels are cleaned or how fruity beers are made in summer. Last but not least: the brewer will share with you all beer secrets you haven’t heard before! After this visit, you’ll be more than ready for a chill or rather interactive tasting?
After a small 2 hours of Gavere (yes, that’s the name of the village where the brewery is located) visit , it’s time to go back to the city center and see how you feel. You’ll get the chance to enjoy the last tastings with your guide Liselot. She’s there to spoil you with a beer while sharing more beer secrets of the Belgian beer world. Feel like participating in that beer game? Questions more related to your previous tastings and your brewery visit are all part of this interaction time.
Chilling or gaming, it will all be fine by your guide. As long as you’re having a good time!
We had such an amazing experience with Liselot! She has such an excellent knowledge about beer, and she explains things with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. The tour was... read more overall very fun and interactive, we have learned not only about the brewing process, but also little anecdotes about beer and stories about the old Brussels. Beer tasting was amazing and cherry on the cake, we have even mixed the beer with the typical belgian pralines which made the tasting even more interesting. I would highly recommend this tour to any beer lover, or simply to everyone that is just curious about it. I personally did this tour with a friend of mine, he is really passionate about beer and knew way more than me and I was just really curious. We have both enjoyed it a lot and now he can´t stop talking about what he has learned with his german friends. …

As an beginner with beers and how it is made, I think this was a very cozy and enlighting experience. The guide, Lisalot, a local girl based in Ghent and... read more Brussels, took me and my party of 6 to different locations in the middleaged part of Ghent.
We tried different producers, and Lisalot brought with her some delicious chocolate which suited well with the drinks. 10/10
