Beer in Brabant

Hospitality is simply part of what Brabant is. People from the area love fun, and of course that includes delicious food and drinks. Enjoying a beer in great company is part of this culture of abundance. At home with friends, but of course also in a bar or on a pavement cafe. We don't just pride ourselves on a steadily increasing selection of craft beers. It's also possible these days to enjoy one of them at a beautiful or unique location.
