Is the brewery easily accessible to people with reduced mobility?

There is a lift connecting the restaurant, the tasting rooms, the brewery and the interactive room. This makes a large part of the brewery tour easily accessible.

How are group visits to the brewery organised?


You can book online for groups between 20 and 25 persons on your own initiative provided that no individual visitors have booked in your time slot. Is your group larger? Or do you prefer a guided tour? Then contact us via the contact form.

In addition, groups can also register for a blending session to blend their own Bourgogne des Flandres. Count on about 25 minutes extra.

What does a blending session involve? 


The blending session can be booked as an extra for groups. A beer connoisseur explains how Bourgogne des Flandres is made by blending young and old beer according to the time-honoured Flemish tradition. You find out more on the different components: first on lambic from Timmermans Brewery, which is produced by spontaneous fermentation and aged in wooden barrels, and then on the brown top-fermented beer that is brewed in the loft at the Bruges brewery. And then it is up to you! Blend your own Bourgogne des Flandres. Do you prefer the refreshing, tangy flavour of lambic, or are you a fan of hints of caramel? Conclude your visit with a well-balanced and complex Bourgogne des Flandres made by our brewer.

Is the bar open to everyone?

Yes, you don't need to visit the brewer first before pulling up a chair to enjoy Flemish beer. It nevertheless goes without saying that we strongly recommend a visit to the brewery. For more information please call +32 (0)50 61 25 39.
