Antwerp Beer Tasting Tour

3. Antwerp Beer Tasting Tour

It’s no coincidence that new beers frequently crop up for tasting here as Antwerp is, after all, the best beer destination – and beer is also gaining popularity worldwide. Beers like Bosbier, Korsakov, Gageleer, Kamil, ’t Lekske, IQ, Cabardouche, De Hopjutters, and Seefbier – to name a few – were recently launched in Antwerp. Yes, beer is trendy – and trending. In addition to all the new beers, attention is once again being paid to beers that have been undeservedly ignored. For example, Saison Dupont. Today everyone knows it, but 5 years ago it was unknown, even though the brewery has existed for four generations. The beer trend ensures that niche beers with a very distinct flavor are able to capture a place on the beer menu. More and more ultra-hoppy beers and heavy stouts are emerging. Until recently, stout was as good as dead. Now it’s back and in different variants, with alcohol percentages ranging from a mild four to a sturdy twelve percent. Your expert beer guide will further unravel the secrets of beer with you, by taking you on a beer and Genever gin tasting experience, paired with local snacks like Belgian cheeses, frites with mayonnaise, and other taste delights.

Op een koud maar heerlijk zonnige zaterdag zijn we om 10:30 uur gestart aan onze stadswandeling door Antwerpen. Onze gids Ari heeft ons met veel humor en kennis door de bezienswaardigheden van de stad geleid. Wij waren met een groepje van 4 en er waren 6 andere mensen aanwezig, een mooi overzichtelijk groepje. Een echte aanrader!

End of September. Almost private tour. Only 3 people. We were served at our beck and call and were allowed to introduce our own interests. Great guide. Seen a lot, expert explanation.
