"Belgian Brewers' Museum" Museum of the Belgian Brewers Tip by Sjalen

Museum of the Belgian Brewers, Brussels: 12 reviews and 22 photos


The Union of Belgian Brewers has its headquarters in the Brewers' guild house in Grand Place (look for the house with the horse on the roof, it shows Charles of Lorraine, patron of the brewers). The guild was founded in the 14th century when it also bought one of the first houses in the Grand Place, the house that previously stood here, and opened the Gouden Boom (the Golden Tree). This was unfortunately severely damaged by the French troops during the bombardement of Grand Place in 1695 but the brewers rebuilt their house and continued, before the house was used for different thing until the brewers took it back in 1951. Here they now also have a beer museum in the cellar vaults, where you can study old machinery and tools for beer brewing from centuries ago and where there is a database showing all Belgian breweries and more. Of course a small glass of Belgium's best beverage is also served afterwards.

Address: Grand Place 10
Directions: If you cannot find Grand Place you're too drunk to come here :)))
