De Halve Maan Brewery

De Halve Maan is a family owned brewery that has been making beer since 1856. (I don't think it has been cleaned since they opened.)  It is the only brewery left in the historic center of Brugge.

Because rain is so common in Belgium the tour went outside (on schedule) on to the roof depsite the weather conditions.

Originally the beer was only produced and distributed in barrels.

The 45 min. tour was 6 euro per person, and ended with a cold, frothy Brugse Zot beer.  We learned many things during the tour, like that hops is in the cannibus family, and that Belgians are kind of alcoholics.  :)


  1. Mmmmmm beer tour (well, as long as the beer doesn't taste as dusty as the brewery looks)

  2. I love the knowledge you gleaned from the tour (Belgians are kind of alcoholics). Way funny. It is a diverse and interesting tour you are on. Thanks for taking us all along! “I fear the man who drinks water and so remembers this morning what the rest of us said last night.”
