Leuven is undisputedly the world’s beer capital and the city’s story has been profoundly shaped by its brewing past. Even today, beer has an enormous social, cultural, and economic significance, as you will find dozens of breweries in the city’s surrounding areas. Small artisan breweries and beer giants like AB InBev SAB Miller combine to annually brew hundreds of different beers. In addition, with more than 50,000 students living in Leuven, it is no coincidence that the city possesses the highest ratio of cafés per inhabitant in Belgium.

Leuven is the place to be(er), and Beer Hop's beer connoisseurs, sommeliers, zythologists, and specialists are happy to assist you in your exploration of the city’s brew-tiful culture. Discover our full range of beer experiences and brewery visits in and around the city. You can also visit our Beer Hop Beer Shop at Tiensestraat 5 or order a beer and food experience package to enjoy on your sofa at home. Do you live in or near Leuven? Join our Members Club and take part in our growing craft beer community and participate in exclusive beer discoveries. Leuven is located right in the heart of Belgian’s beer country and UNESCO has recognized our beer tradition as a World Heritage!
