Full description
Meet your guide in the center of Ghent and set off on your beer tasting adventure. Learn more about Belgium’s proud brewing traditions from your passionate guide as you walk to your first stop and discover the secrets behind its wide range of beers. As you make your way to the first bar, stop by your guide's favorite chocolate shop to taste some artisanal sweet treats. Discover how to pair chocolate and beer using different flavor combinations. 

Your first stop will be at one of the city’s most popular bars. Here, sample your first beer, swap thoughts on the flavor and notes and soak up the convivial spirit as you chat to your group.  From here, move on to another lively beer haunt, loved by and known only to the locals. You will visit bars that range from trendy and modern to medieval and traditional, so there will be a bar to satisfy every age group. Over the course of the tour, sample a blend of bigger brands and craftwork brews, tasting a gutsy mix of malty, hoppy, fruity, reddish, and herby beers to sour and triple varieties.

Finally, head to your last stop. Here, sample some delicious Trappist and Lambic beers, perfectly matched with Belgian chocolate and other local delicacies. Finish your tour in central Ghent, where your guide will leave you after giving you some recommendations on where to continue bar-hopping.
