this list is broken down

new movie. play games
basically by geographical regions within Belgium. Even though it is a relatively small country because it is packed with destinations I've chosen to try to group things into regions which are in something resembling a geographical proximity.

NAMUR (and nearby)




















Brussels (nearby)

Brussels proper

Note this list is perhaps a little outdated though I've been working on it a little as of 2000. Also see Peter Crombecq's excellent web pages

NAMUR (and nearby)


Brasserie la Caracole

Small commercial brewery making 400 liters at a time. At the moment all the beer they produce is sold at La Table de Wallonie (Place de Marche des Legumes, Namur), but the partnership has just signed to buy a bigger brewery in Ciney. Three beers are made: an amber ale, a brown ale, and a white beer. The first two are category S beers, brewed with pale malt and various special malts. Since the brewery has no lab facilities, they buy their yeast from a bank at Louvain-la-Neuve every time they brew;

L'Eblouissant. 27, rue Armee Grouchy, Namur. 081/73.71.39. in MJBC pg 273 listed as at 108 Rue des Brasseurs, Namur, 081/22.69.28 - A small cafe run by a very particular publican. Extensive beer selection, well cared for. Good meals during lunch, with food also available during dinner

Beer stores:

La Cave de Wallonie. 6, rue de la Halle, Namur

Spice stores sometimes sell bitter (curacao) orange peel. It's hard and white, and bitter tasting. One such store is L'Herbier in Namur, around the corner from La Cave de Wallonie.

Ordinary supermarkets often sell dark and light candy sugar in 1 lb boxes,and many have formidable beer selections, including local brews and glassware.

Jereboams (3- liter bottles) are widely available, and the Sarma Star hypermarket outside of Namur must stock at least 100 beers--and the glasses.

LUSTIN (just south of Namur)


Musee de la Biere (The Beer Museum). 19, rue de la Gare B/2, Lustin, on Route #947. 081/41.11.02

Exterior has hand-painted signs advertising over 1,000 Belgian beer glasses on exhibit, and God knows how many bottles, some of them dating from the 19th century.Admission is 35 francs, which can be applied to a purchase in the gift shop. The gift shop features 11 beers on tap (including the formidable Liefmans' framboise), as well as a good 100-200 in bottles. The interior is crammed with shelves of bottles and glasses, and many of these will actually be of substantial interest to beer geeks. The cafe is also home to a tasting club, the Guilde des Tates-Biere, whose final exam is rumored to include identification of certain beers by year of production.

Lustin is south of Namur, on the Meuse river. The museum is open weekends and student holidays only, but special openings can be arranged for larger groups.

BINCHE (south of Brussels, West of Namur)


Brasserie la Binchoise - Faubourg St. Paul 38, B-7130 Binche, Belgium 064/33.61.86

Brews beer in 1,500 liter batches. All beers are category S beers They make: Marie de Hongrie, a darkish brown, highly aromatic ale of 8.5 ABV containing pale malt, Munich malt, and a small quantity of torrified malt for coloring; Fakir, a slightly less strong but equally aromatic blonde ale; Ours (French for bear), using wild honey for 2/7 of its fermentables; Speciale de Paques, a stronger but thinner-bodied blonde for Easter; and Speciale Noel (for Christmas), a rich, highly aromatic brown beer, and rather orangey.
