What you'll do

To understand all about beer, we will need to brief you about the history of beer. Throughout the tasting of our six beers, we will explore the evolution of this alcoholic drink and the brewing process. We will learn how beer is brewed and which elements are used in it. We will start from the origin of beer back in the antiquity and learn how beer expanded here in Europe during the Middle Ages. We'll talk about our famous Abbey beers and conclude with a discussion about the recent microbreweries. Throughout this experience we will serve you beers that will document our story. You will taste Trappist beers, which are still brewed by monks according to the old recipes. The Valley of the Senne, where Brussels is located, has that specific particularity that would be on the origin of the spontaneous fermentation that will generate our most remarkable Belgian beer, the Lambic. Then we will serve you an award-winning beer from the World Beer Awards before we end with a Belgian Indian Pale Ale. During the experience, we will teach you how to taste beer using your five senses and after this, you will never drink a beer the same way.

We are Christophe and Sancar. We're both passionate about Belgium's history, society, and culture. We host experiences separately about Brussels history, but we also share another passion—beer. In Belgium, we start to drink and appreciate beer at a young age. We want to share our passion with our guests and teach them all about it.

Where you'll be

BE Brusseleer is a new place created specifically for the beer tastings. As soon as you enter this place you are immersed in a typical Brussels house, rocked by some French music of the 60s. It is located right in the center, at 2min walk from the Grand Place.

Rated 4.88 out of 5 from 164 reviews.

We did our group tour with the co-host Christophe who was very well informed re all the beers. We were first introduced to a history of Brussels and then we tried some beers that none of us have ever tried despite living in Belgium! Very cool tour, would highly recommend:)

Christophe was an amazing guide, we got a full and interesting history of Brussels whilst trying some fantastic beers. He was extremely knowledgeable and made real connections with us and our hometowns of Scotland and Germany. A fantastic experience and I would go again without hesitation!

Christophe provided a delightful evening and gave a great background to the history behind Belgian beers, the best ways to taste them and how to identify the different flavours. The yeast-free sour beer was particularly interesting. Doing this tour was perfect for us as we only had a short evening in Brussels and not only did we get to sample to local delicacies, we also got to see many of the major sights and immersed ourselves in a little of the local culture. Would definitely recommend .

Super god oplevelse! Sancar viste virkelig sin passion for øl og historie. Øllene han havde fundet frem var fantastiske og meget forskellige. Vi havde aldrig fundet disse gode øl på egen hånd. Desuden var han virkelig god til engelsk og han var nem at kommunikere med. Hvis du leder efter en hyggelig ølsmagning, så kan denne klart anbefales.

Sancar is amazing. He spent time with us describing each beer and making sure we got to enjoy them and answer every question before we moved on to the next beer. We even ran into him on a tour with another group a day later and he stopped to say hello! Very friendly, even more knowledgeable, and an all around great guy.

This was a fun and interactive evening! I was traveling to Brussels alone and was looking for a beer-related experience to fit my schedule. Christophe was very informative and guided us through the history of beer. We had a small group size so the tasting pours ended up being a good bit of beer. The tour is aimed to walk you through the evolution of beer, not the “best” or most popular. As long as you have an open mind, you’ll have a great evening. It’s a bonus that this tour takes place so close to many of the touristy sites. Just be aware they’re transitioning locations so make sure to save the host’s number so you can reach out from the street.
