Craft Breweries

HOPPY FLAVOURS

Lager, dark or amber: beer comes in all colours in French Flanders! Craft beer production is a big part of Flemish traditional culture.

Like Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Flanders is a true brewing region with its many distinctive beers and their authentic flavours. Six craft breweries and one industrial brewery are located here. Some of them are open to the public to share some of their brewing secrets. The famous beer “Trois-Monts” of the Brasserie St-Sylvestre, “Anosteké” – from the Flemish expression meaning ‘see you next time’, Blonde d’Esquelbecq from the village of the same name, and other beers such as “au Pif”, “Besace”, “Bière du Reuze” and “Hommelpap” are examples of local know-how. You will probably have a chance to taste these special and luxury beers in moderation* in the traditional cafés and restaurants in the region.
