Day #3 - Brewery Tours

Our day will begin with a visit to Brouwerij Bosteels, which is famous for its fine beers, Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and Deus. Operated by 7th generation brewers, their ancestor John Bosteels started brewing in 1791!  You will be quite impressed by the large collection of carriages and beer wagons on display at the entrance. Even better, you will enjoy a historical movie and beer tasting inside their special taproom!

After lunch, we will travel to the village of Ertvelde, near Ghent ( the second largest city in Flanders), for a visit to Brouwerij Van Steenberge.  This brewery is most famous for two beers, Gulden Draak and Piraat.  Your group will be hosted by Jef Versele, a 6th generation master brewer.  He stands 6’ 6” tall and is very proud of his ancestors and the beer they make. You'll get to drink beer and enjoy a great dinner with him while he regales you of the history of Belgian beer
