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"

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with huge chunks floating in it and a medium, diminishing white head. Aroma of honey and mild hops. Decent flavor of honey and hops. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. This is the kind of beer that you can enjoy once but won’t buy again.

Lowlander Oct ’07. Pours golden with small, quickly fading head. Taste is syrup, honey, hops with a spicy bitter aftertaste. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, slight smoke. Drinkable but not amazing.

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,
