Belgium Beer Brewery Tours

Beer is most likely the one thing Belgium is world-famous for. Well, apart from the little statue of a peeing boy in Brussels (Manneken Pis).

There's no place like Belgium for a true beer lover. Dozens of great breweries in a little country roughly the area of Maryland. Just 3 hours are enough to drive all the way across it, thanks to the highly developed road network. For a beer-tasting trip that's the perfect combination.

1132 varieties of beer reportedly exist in Belgium. There's no reason not to believe that number, considering the wide range of Belgian beer styles. It starts with Trappist beers, brewed exclusively by monks in six monasteries. Several abbeys produce well-known brands as well, such as Leffe or Affligem. Some of the Belgian beers are distributed all around the world, Stella Artois and Hoegaarden to mention a few.

You'll find 23 Belgian breweries offering tours to its visitors in this list. From the tiny Westvleteren Abbey Trappist brewery, whose beer has been awarded world's best several times. To a giant Stella Artois brewery in Leuven.

The links below will take you straight to a page displaying more information about that brewery. Find out how to book a tour, locate the brewery on a map, plan your trip and enjoy the beer!
