The 5 best local beers and where to drink them in Ghent

1) Gruut Blond

The sublime Gruut Blond is brewed in an old factory next to the river. It is flavoured in the mediaeval way using a mixture of herbs known as gruut, rather than the more common hops. The result is a fresh, light beer with a complex taste. You can drink Gruut Blond or its four sister beers in local cafes or straight from the vats in the brew house.
