I prefer this “brun” to the “blonde” version, but that’s just me. It’s a really nice beer. Not as heavy as most of the other Belgium beers which makes it a good starting beer if you’re new to this type of tipple.
This beer (along with the blonde) is now so popular that the number of delivery trucks to and from the brewery (in the middle of Bruges) is becoming a problem. The brewery will soon start to lay underground pipes to pump their beer straight to a depot out of town. Therefore, the beers history as a “Bruges beer” is still intact without it spoiling the ambiance of this beautiful city.
The people of Bruges are known as Bruges zotten. Bruges fool!
