One of my favorite memories of beer and traveling in Europe was in 2016 when my husband and I were in Bamburg, Germany and did a self-guided beer tour from brewery to brewery, stopping at 7 places in about as many hours. We had a lot of fun, met some interesting people, picked up coasters from the breweries as souvenirs, and enjoyed trying all of the different beers. My husband found the self-guided beer tour on a blog, and we just followed it at a pace we enjoyed. (Notably, I stopped drinking after about the 3rd or 4th brewery as I still had to drive us back to Rothenburg ob de Tauber that evening!).
Fast forward to this July, and my husband, myself, and our 18 year old son will be traveling along with another family in our same age group and their 19 year old son. We will be in Brussels for three days (with one of those days in Bruges). I'd love to find another DIY beer tour to visit several breweries, but I'm not having a lot of luck. I'm less interested in a formal tour, both because of the price for 6 people and because the self-guided tour is just more appealing.
Ideally it would be something we could walk between (or take public transportation/taxi/uber) and just do at our own pace, and that would give us a chance to try several different beers and different locales (breweries/pubs/restaurants/etc). A tour of a brewery is nice, but not necessary.
Do you have any recommendations for your favorite places to enjoy a Belgium brew in Brussels? Maybe I could link up everyone's favorites and create something that way. We are open to all different types of beer and experiences, so please share your favorites! Thanks, everyone!
