With Brussels Beer City! Brussels is experiencing a renaissance in brewing, an activity that has helped to shape the city and its history. But, to know where we are and why, you need to know where it’s coming from. Over the course of an evening, we will dive onto the history of brewing in Brussels, exploring the “3 Ages of Beer” in Brussels – from the 19th century estaminets where straight lambic and faro were the drinks of the common man, through to the booming industrial breweries of the mid-20th century pumping out lager and pils, and on to the revival in traditional spontaneous fermentation and the rise of the New Moderns of Brussels brewing that are redefining what Brussels beer means. Along the way, we will taste some of the landmark beers that defined these eras, together with some classic Brussels snacks.
