    The Entrance To The Village!

    You simply must go on a tour of the Hoegaarden brewery. It's so enjoyable and for the ridiculously small price you'd be foolish to miss it.
    Tours are by appointment only, except on Saturday when the 13:30, 15:00 and 16:30 tours are open without a resrevation.

    Flemish Flowers

    The Flemish Show Gardens are a series of gardens, each of them themed. You follow a route from the guide book which takes you around the various gardens - the book is not in English, but there is a (free) photocopied translation of the text, so you can follow that.
    Entrance to the gardens was about 6 Euro.

    Inside The Brewery

    The tour continues into the brewery to see all the stages of the brewing process before eventually ending up at the bottling plant - where most of the beer ends up too.
    After that, there's an interactive gallery where you take your own time with the "hands on" displays, which provide some more interesting information about the beer and brewing.

    Eventually you will be ushered back to the shop where you collect your free souvenier, a Hoegaarden glass.

    The

    The tour starts with an explanation of the history of the brewery and its beers, and even a discussion about how the beer should be presented and served. There's a nice question-and-answer feel to it, and it's multi-lingual, so we didn't feel left out of it.
    After that we go into "the beer garden" - here all the ingredients of the beer can be seen growing (depending on the season) - and there's even a spring providing the water...
