Bruges, Belgium is, with good reason, one of Europe’s most popular cities with travelers. Stunning architecture, romantic canals, beautiful churches, terrific art, and mind-blowingly fabulous chocolate—Bruges has it all. It even has the world’s only frites museum. Now Bruges has launched its first beer museum.

On July 5th, entrepreneurs Thibault Bekaert and Emmanuel Maertens opened the Bruges Beer Museum in the old Postgebouw building on the historic Grote Markt in the heart of town. Of course the highlight of the attraction is a chance to sample some of Belgium’s hundreds of phenomenal brews.

    Bruges is, sadly, a victim of its own popularity. What it gained in tourists it lost in authenticity – its a giant hotel annex chocholate shop. Don’t get me wrong, its a very nice place to visit, but its not a living city anymore. Its neighbour Ghent has all that Bruges got to offer and with much less crowds to battle. And right now its hosting the annual Ghentse Feesten, which is an absolutely mind-blowing festival.
