Podge’s Next Belgian Beer Tour

The Taste of Trappist Tour

Friday 10 June 2022 – Tuesday 14 June 2022

This is a brand new Tour for those who like their Trappist beers. We are staying at the Monasterium hotel in central Gent, a former monastery. This Tour is designed to take in the new Vleteren Tournée Trappiste Festival which runs from Saturday 11 to Sunday 12 June 2022 in the West Flanders beer-village of Vleteren. The festival is focussed firmly on traditional, artisan Trappist beers, cheeses, chocolates, liqueurs and wines from all of the worldwide Trappists (more correctly known as The Cistercian Order of Strict Observance). This Tour will visit the more northerly Trappist monastery/breweries/brewery taps in Belgium and the Southern Netherlands. Come and spend four nights and five days with Siobhan being driven around the Belgian countryside in a luxury coach and finding all the best Trappist breweries, cafes and beer restaurants for a luxuriate in the classic Belgian Trappist beer range.Read more.

What makes for a great Belgian beer tour?

First: your host should have an encyclopaedic knowledge of Belgian beer and years of first-hand experience of the most atmospheric Belgian beer cafés and bars, brewery taps and restaurants in which to sample the very best of Belgian beer.

Secondly, to travel in style and relax in comfort, safe in the knowledge that your tour will run seamlessly, and that your accommodation will be comfortable and situated close to your tour’s points-of-interest.

Thirdly, you’ll want to learn about the history of the places you visit on your tour, and hear from the horse’s mouth the stories from the makers of the most interesting Belgian beers in the world.
