Welcome to the Beer Capital!

Leuven is the undisputed world capital of beer . For centuries, beer has determined the ins and outs of the city. The social, cultural and economic significance of beer is enormous here. Today you will find more than 30 breweries in and around Leuven. Small artisan breweries and beer giants such as Stella Artois brew hundreds of different beers. And 50,000 students are walking around here. It is no coincidence that nowhere in our country there are more cafés per inhabitant than with us.

That Leuven is the place to be (er) is therefore fixed. And the Leuven Leisure & Beer Hop team is happy to be your guide. Discover here our selection and taste of our Leuven and Flemish Brabant beer culture. You are in itheart of Bierland Belgium ! Our beer is world heritage and we drink one! THIS  AUTUMN AND WINTER (21/09 - 20/03/19) we traditionally go every Friday evening at 7:30 pm on Pub Tasting Tour , beer tasting tour along the best beer taverns, and every Saturday at 13h30 we continue - also according to good practice - on Brouwerijfietstocht . Along the most beautiful roads we cycle to a small artisanal brewery near the city, visit the brewery and taste the house beers. Until Saturday 3 November we go by bike, from Saturday 10 November we will go with our minibus at Brouwerijbustrip, warm and dry during the cold last and first months of the year. From Saturday, March 23, 2019 we switch again to the Brouwerijfietstocht.

SPRING AND SUMMER  (21/03 - 20/09) are also coming. We stay every Friday night on  Pub Tasting Tour  , every Saturday on  Brouwerijfietstocht , and completely new this year is our Saturday beer experience walk  Leuven van't Vat .

If you are still thirsty, you can always visit our Beer Hop Beer Shop in Tiensestraat 5. You will find the best selection of Leuven and Flemish Brabant specialty beers, supplemented with a Trappist and a Belgian corner.

All dates and full info about our programmed beer activities can be found in the menu under 'Beer trips and Activities'. Places are limited, so do not wait too long to register.

Groups can also always request a customized trip or activity. With great pleasure we work out a fantastic interesting beer activity, day or multi-day.
