Brugse Zot and Straffe Hendrik are two delicious beers brewed in the only still-operational family- owned brewery in the centre of Bruges, called De Halve Maan. This home brewery was established in 1856 and was thoroughly renovated and modernised in 2005. Here, visitors can experience the beer brewing process first-hand and find out more about the fascinating world of malt and hops. The brewery also offers a stunning panoramic view of the beautiful medieval city of Bruges.
