``No other country has native beers as diverse, individualistic, even idiosyncratic. Some are so unlike conventional beers as to shock the wary consumer.``
Michael Jackson, Great Beers of Belgium
The beers of Brasserie de la Senne are produced by two passionate brewers from Brussels: Yvan De Baets and Bernard Leboucq.
They work in a small brewery honouring the traditional ways of brewing beer; unfiltered, unpasteurized, free of any additives, using only the finest raw materials of the highest quality. Their dedication to uncompromised quality is definitely one of the outstanding characteristics of the brewery.
The beers, with their complex flavour and well-distinguished personalities, are true beers of character, made in Brussels.

Fort Lapin Brewery is an authentic, craft brewery just north of the city centre of Bruges. The name is taken from the place where it is actually located. Originally, Fort Lapin was a fortress built in 1664 to protect Bruges’ commercial hub.
At our brewery, quality comes first. It is our intention to offer the customers the beers of only the highest quality, produced in our own brewery according to home-made recipes.
This can only be done, of course, by using the best raw materials, keeping everything small-scale and combining this with years of experience and lashings of enthusiasm.
We pride ourselves on the fact that we personally select the hops at the hops farms, which is why we have only used Belgian hops to date.
We are one of the very few actual farmhouse breweries. We have our own barley (don’t malt it ourselves), wheat, spelt and magnum hops.
Rather then making boring Belgian style beers all the time we use those ingredients to make basically whatever we feel like.
So we do a lot of barrel aging, a lot of mixed fermentation sours and fruitbeers.
Brasserie de Cazeau is a family craft brewery created in Templeuve, in Greater Tournai, in 1753.

The objective of the brewery is to focused on the production of handmade local beer, brewed with natural regional products.
The barley is grown by two farmers on the land of the village, 1 km from the brewery and is then converted into malt in the malting of the castle located 7 km from Basècles.
The hop comes partly from plants of hops grown on the grounds of the brewery. Wood, historical heritage of the site, will be used for manufacturing the beer trays. The choice fell on the poplar tree of Hainaut.
The Humblet family was in search of a site to build a new brewery & continue their tradition and long list of beers brewed by their father, Benoit Humblet.

It was time for some rejuvenation and the renovation project began immediately. Almost 2 years of remarkable work and finally in March 2013 the brewing system was installed in the old barns.
Ultra modern fermentation tanks of a capacity of 6.000HL, a astonishing contrast of modern technology and the farm dating back more than 7 centuries.

At one time wolves occupied these calm places in the wonderful Ardennes. It’s been told that these wolf packs came from Slovenia, the region where the best hops in the world originally were harvested.
