Brouwerij De Halve Maan

The ‘Halve Maan’ (Half Moon) is an authentic and historic brewery in the centre of Bruges. This ‘home’ brewery is a family business with a tradition stretching back through six generations to 1856. This is where the Bruges city beer – the ‘Brugse Zot’ – is brewed: a strong-tasting, high-fermentation beer based on malt, hops and special yeast. There are guided tours of the brewery every day in a number of different languages. After the tour, visitors are treated to the blond version of the ‘Brugse Zot’.
