The reputation of Belgian beers has long since spread beyond our borders. Over the last ten years, Brussels has seen a renewed interest in artisanal production and craft beers.
The capital is home to the iconic Brasserie Cantillon, a true historical Brussels brewing gem, but today, a dozen or so young breweries are revisiting the great classics. Brussels' brewers are creating, testing, modernising... they don't want to simply rest on their laurels and are bringing a modern approach to Brussels' brewing heritage. Most of them are located along the banks of the canal and in the neighbourhood around Tour & Taxis, as well as in Saint-Gilles and Anderlecht.
If you don't know them yet, read on to discover the capital's emblematic breweries.
