Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant

“It’s right on one of the canals in Ghent and their house beer is called Klokke Roeland, which is a Belgian strong dark ale. You can find it in the US, but there is something special about drinking a Klokke Roeland at the Water House Tavern.

The tavern has a really nice little bar with a great beer menu and all kinds of different beers, as well as some pretty good wine. They also have a little patio.”

Van Steenberge Brewery

“They brew Gulden Draak and you can tour the brewery. It’s kind of the home of the beer, so there is a Golden Dragon on top of one of the towers in the center of Ghent.”
