In 2005 Xavier Vanneste, son of Mrs Véronique Maes, renovated and restarted the old brewery which had been in the family since 1856. He launched Brugse Zot, a new beer with a unique recipe. Today Brugse Zot is the only beer brewed in Bruges’ town centre!
The people of Bruges are known as "Brugse Zotten" (Bruges Fools), also known as "Brugse Jonckers"

tom10101 (3162) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Hazy golden/orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma of cereals, herbal notes and light spiciness. Taste is also of cereals with a little more spiciness than in the aroma and herbal notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. A touch of alcohol too. Decent Belgian Ale, but not much more than that. A bit "hot" for a 6% abv beer. Ok drinkability.

At a cafe in Brugge by the old windmill. Mostly clear orange-yellow with a spicy aroma. Taste is bland and slightly biting. Moderate bitterness on the back felt disjointed from the rest of the beer.
