A visit to the brewery
The protected malting factory of the old brewery in Bruges was integrated into a residential new-build project. For environmental reasons, the production of Bruges city and abbey beers was transferred to the top-fermentation PALM Breweries in 2004, which is carrying on the tradition. Do you want to discover Bruges top-fermentation beers? Then why not visit PALM Breweries in Steenhuffel.
Only group visits are possible (min.15 and max.50 people), following reservation via the website.

Visit the Bruges Beer Museum
This museum takes you on a journey covering the history of beer and beer in Belgium, with its unique fermentation and brewing methods. It particularly focuses on the history of beer in Bruges and the story behind “gruut”. Visitors are also treated to a sensory experience of the ingredients: malt, hops, “gruut” and barley.
Named the Bruges Beer Museum, its tagline is “The Beer Experience, discovering and tasting”, thus emphasising the interactive nature of the museum, where you get to experience the beer for yourself: this includes smelling, sampling and tasting.
