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"

I had the oppurtunity to sample the beer at the brewery in Brugge served traditonal style with a twist of lime. Better fresh brewed than in the bottle. The blond has a robust flavor much sharper than one wold expect. sweet aftertaste. smooth soft carbonation with a medium body,
