Tips from locals
Stop by and discover how 'het Anker' - as one of the oldest breweries in Belgium (1471) - has preserved the authenticity of far-off days. Visit the Brewery with a guide (8 € per person) inclusive 2 beer tastings but be sure to book in advance.
Interesting, informative and reasonable price ... and you get a beer or two at the end! Very popular so book in advance. Also go to the brassiere for lovely food
The city brewery with amazing beers! Also good if you want to try the Belgian cuisine. Their specialty is 'stoofvlees', a typical beef stew made with Carolus beer. Also in vegetarian option with seitan!
