We will first stop by in various local artisans chocolate shops, where you will try amazing samples. Crunchy hazelnut, dark ganache, salted butter caramel, as well as ginger, tea, coffee, saffron or chili... Forget what you already know, because you’re going to be surprised! Unique to Brussels, the chocolatiers are always experimenting with new flavors, textures and cocoa bean types. The second part is a Belgian Beer tasting session that will take you to bars and taverns around Grand Place. It's a great way to discover small taverns and mix with locals. The places we go to are hidden small gems and are not easy to find at all. Like one of the oldest taverns in town or a small bar/puppet theatre. You will sample beers that are all completely different and all specific to Belgium. Abbey beers, Trappists, Lambics, Krieks, Belgian IPAs, Triple Blonds, Double Browns... you name it! We focus only on local and craft beers. No Leffe or a Stella Artois here ;) During the tour, you will also learn about the city history, discover hidden corners and wander off the beaten path. We want you to experience the real Brussels, away from the tourists traps and the Delirium bar!
