Podge’s Next Belgian Beer Tour

Tour 100 / The Belgian Black Beer Tour

Thursday 21 May 2020 – Tuesday 26 May 2020

This exciting new tour focuses on the black beers of Belgium. This Tour was inspired by Kaffee Bazaar in Ypres, the only café we know which has a separate, huge black beer menu and also by our travellers insatiable desire for Struise Brouwers Black Albert beer - a mighty 13%abv Royal Belgian Stout. We are staying for five nights at Novotel in central Mechelen, the historical home of Belgium's dark beers and a good base from which to explore those breweries who make great dark beers and cafes with a tendency that way. A visit to the inimitable De Struise Brouwers will form part of the Tour. This Tour will sell out so if you want to join us better reserve a place with your deposit soon. Read more.
