Trip Overview

Begin in Brussels in the Belgian beer museum. From there you will journey into the countryside to learn about the traditional methods of making Saison at Brasserie Dupont and Blaugies. The trip will continue with a look inside some of the oldest and most secretive breweries in the world, still run by the monks who founded them centuries ago, as you sip beer at Orval, Chimay, and Westvletren. 

The next leg on the trip will allow you to learn about the oldest Belgian beer style, lambic, as you go behind the scenes at Drie Fonteinen and Cantillon. Finally, spend the last two days of the trip exploring the international city of Brussels.
