The brewery

Located in the heart of Bruges is Brouwerij De Halve Maan, home to our Brugse Zot. This is the story of a brewer’s family who always believed in authentic beer from Bruges.

Our authentic family brewery

Every single drop of Brugse Zot is brewed in the city center of Bruges. Our family has been brewing on ‘Het Walplein’ for 6 generations now. Today, De Halve Maan is the last authentic family brewery in the city, and we can reflect on our rich history.  

The historic brewery has become an iconic spot in the city. We’re one of the most visited breweries in the country with visitors from all over the world!
