The Lambikstoempers vzw organizes …


a day in Bruges on Saturday 4 june 2016

We meet at 9:45 am at the entrance of Bryggja Brewery, Moerkerkebrug 3 at 8340 Moerkerke.

The programm:

1. Visit to the artisan microbrewery Bryggja Brewery

It started out as a hobby. In 2012 four brewing friends decided to enter the  Brouwland Beer competition with their tripel. Out of a selection of more than 90 beers their Bryggja was elected the best Belgian hobby beer by a professional jury (among which yours truly). The beginning of a great adventure! Meanwhile, they found a building in Moerkerke and in the spring of 2015 the brewing equipment was installed. Time to take a visit …

Bryggja Brewery

At Bryggja we have a tour of +/- 2 hours, 3 tasters included!
Afterwards we go to the center of Bruges (a drive of +/- 20 min.).

Parking tip for Bruges: use the large parking at the front of the station, it’s fairly cheap and you have a free bus to the center with your parking ticket. There are also  parkings closer to our next stop, but they are quite expensive!

2. Meal at brasserie Bourgogne des Flandres

Belgian classics and the nicest terrace of Bruges (as they themselves claim). The address: Kartuizerinnenstraat 6 at 8000 Brugge.

3. Visit of the brewery Bourgogne des Flandres

The Tour starts at 2:30 pm, at the Kartuizerinnenstraat 6 at 8000 Brugge.

We enter right in the middle of the brewing process. Most likely they are filtering at that time. Brewer Thomas Vandelanotte guides us around the plant, telling us about the brewing process and he lets us taste of lambic, the beer that is brewed locally and the  blend Bourgogne des Flandres. And for De Lambikstoempers hij even presents an extra!

For the ones who want to taste something else afterwards, we also go to …

Brugs Beertje

4. ’t Brugs Beertje

A pleasant and cozy beer café in the center of Bruges with 300 different Belgian beers. Daisy Claeys, manageres of the café, received the Lambic Award 2015 at the end of last year. This award is given to a person who has distinguised himselve (or herselve) in a particular way in the defense of the intrests of the traditional lambic beers and the promotion of Oude Geuze and Oude Kriek. The address: Kemelstraat 5 at 8000 Brugge.
