Beers in Bruges

Today was the shortest day of cycling – just 46km, but still about 10km further than my legs wanted to go.

Luckily just inside Bruges city walls is the Brouwerij de Halve Maan – where I had lunch washed down with their excellent Tripel.

Then a little later it was on to Cambrinus.

Now this is a beer menu:


Several beers on tap, such as Delirium Nocturnum and some interesting bottles to try:


The horn was a bit gimmicky, but the Tripel contained within it was very good with lots of flavour from the yeast.

Just around the corner is Cafe Red Rose and a chance to swap wooden bar stools for comfy chairs and a couple more.

The beer above is a 10% Tjeeses Reserva BBA from Struise Brouwers – aged in Makers Mark barrels.


This is a Troubadour Magma IPA at 9%.

Tomorrow it’s back to a slightly longer day on the bike as I head toward the border with France.
