Brussels is a beer lover’s paradise! A remarkable destination with plenty of exciting breweries offering tasty modern beer flavours. We've rounded up some of the must-try Belgian Beer Brands in Brussels. So, let’s start sampling!
Try this Lambic of the Cantillon Brewery, which contains natural sugars that have a typical bouquet and finesse. Doree-coloured Gueuze (Alc: 5.5% and IBU: 30) is the result of a complex mixture of Lambics of different tastes and ages. This sparkling Gueuze is a must-try!
Do you wish to sample a beer that is featured with more complex notes? Try this winey fermented beer made only from Pale Ale malt - Iris (Alc: 6.5% and IBU: 45). The amber-coloured beer is different from Lambic. It is bitter due to the use of fresh hops and slightly caramelized in taste.

Here's a light blonde beer, curated generously with the finest aromatic hops. Taras Boulba (Alc: 4.5% and IBU: 33) has a very refreshing taste and a scent that reminisces of citrus. The hazed pale golden coloured drink is quite intense and refreshing at the same time.
Bitter Tripel lovers, this one is for you! The Jambe de Bois (Alc: 8.0% and IBU: 49) by Brussels brewery Brasserie de la Senne is an authentic Belgian Tripel that is said to have been brewed as a homage to the Belgian revolution. The golden blond coloured beer is packed with classic bready malts and vibrant white-pepper and banana yeast and has a citrus fruity aroma.
No Science Noisy Pale Ale
The slight aroma of tropical fruits such as passion fruit, lemon yellow colour with a tinge of cloudiness, and the taste of very soft hops leaving a bit of bitterness, that's what you will experience with Noise Pale Ale (Alc: 6.0% and IBU: 60). The softly hopped beer makes it light and easy to drink.
