Beer in Antwerp

Belgian beers are world-famous, and Antwerp is an excellent place to improve your acquaintance with them.

The De Koninck Antwerp City Brewery offers an ideal introduction to the world of beer. Het Pakhuis is another brewery where you can taste authentically brewed beer. In addition, there are plenty of typical ‘brown cafés’ which often have dozens and in some cases hundreds of Belgian beers on the menu. Examples include Bier Central, ’t Waagstuk, Paters Vaetje, de Kulminator and Gollem. One beer that deserves special mention is Seefbier. This is a 19th century Antwerp beer that was sold until the 1930s, but then disappeared. In 2012, it was relaunched by the Antwerpse Brouw Compagnie, and has proved a great success: the blond cloudy beer has again become very popular. In 2015, Seefbier got a little brother: Bootjesbier.

Masters of Taste: Interview Hans Bombeke

“There are so many beers today that the knowledge of the barkeeper has become very important.” On the sunny terrace of beer café ’t Waagstuk on the Stadswaag we meet beer connoisseur Hans Bombeke. Please don’t call him a zythologist or beer sommelier; he finds those fancy titles inappropriate. “For that you have to complete the corresponding studies” he says while smoking his pipe.
