List of Belgian Breweries
There are a lot of breweries in Belgium, ranging from small home breweries to the large multinationals like inbev. They all have their own special beers. If you wanna see the magic happening, you can visit some of them. We made a list of places you can visit as an individual (at most breweries they only accept groups). If you know of any other, please feel free to add them here.
De halve maan 'De halve maan' family brewery has been active since 1856, and is today the only remaining brewery in the center of Bruges. On the brewery visit through the modern brewery and the authentic museum you are introduced into the interesting world of malt and hops, and you can enjoy a panoramic view of Bruges. After your visit they offer you a degustation of the 'Brugse zot'. The brewery tavern is a good place to have lunch or to take a rest with a good beer. http://www.halvemaan.be/e/default.htm

De koninck Ask anyone from Antwerp to describe the city in a few words and you can guarantee the answer: 'the Schelde, the cathedral of our Lady and a Bolleke of De Koninck'. Few Antwerp companies have such an intimate connection with the city, or so rich a tradition as the Brewery De Coninck. You can visit the brewery every saturday at 3 p.m. http://www.dekoninck.be/visit.php?lan=EN

- Trappist Westvleteren: very hard to get Trappist beer. It's only available from the monastery in West Flanders. So if you can get your hands on this one you should try it.
- Een bolleke De konick: Antwerp pride if it comes to beer. Just ask for a "bolleke".
