Overview
More
The impressive building that is now the European Beer Museum was a food store in the 17th century and a malt house in the 19th. The museum collection consists of more than 53,000 exhibits that recreate the world of brewing. They include the basic ingredients, the history of beer, production techniques and beer-related arts, crafts and traditions. Designed for the enjoyment of young and old alike, the visit includes a children’s path (with games, interactive displays and sounds) and is suitable for all. All the media are available in four languages (French, English, Dutch and German). At the end of the visit, step into the museum’s tavern for a chance to taste the beer in a happily convivial ambiance and perhaps take some home with you

The boys in particular found it very interesting. We enjoyed a couple of beers at the end to compare different types and styles - in the pleasant tavern. A bit more time and lunch here would have been nice!

We are sorry you disliked this video. It is part of a temporary exhibition about alcoholism during World War I. Unfortunately, this video is only showing the reality of the War. We hope you liked the rest of the beer museum. Best regards

Really enjoyed this and was suitable for those with small children. Loved learning about beer making and seeing all the old fashioned equipment.

After all the World War I Museum's and experiences (death & war), it's nice to take a break and have a beer. Translations in several languages (nice), however none as in depth as French.. We are in France though!
