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"

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 Sweet, but fresh beer. Well balanced taste and nice body and carbonation. Although it doesn’t stand out, it’s a great Belgian beer, very enjoyable.

On tap in Bruges, having lunch in a nice little square. Quite some depth to the amber-gold colour. A fairly solid if middle of the road Belgian ale, some slight sweetness, a spicy hop, a moderately estery Belgian yeast flavour. Marketed very well throughout Bruges, distinctive labelling and quite suitable flavours to hit non-nerdy drinkers. Pleasant.

Drank with Marijn and Zico while eating olives 16-7-2015. Not a very special beer. A bit watery, lots of carbonation, bitterness is too dominant. Too flat for me.

Tap @Beer House No.1, Riga. Slightly hazy amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Sweet and Belgian yeast dominates the aroma. Malty, sweet, faint smokiness at first. Later some rotten ham and metallic notes step in which I don’t like. Red currant and malts in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. I’ve had better Belgian Ales.

Vlotte doordrinker, smaakt mij persoonlijk veel beter als andere commerciële bieren. Leuk voor op een terras.

Pours cloudy pale yellow with thick white head. Highly carbonated refreshing beer. Citrus fruity flavours but without being sweet, in fact it is marginally bitter. There’s a certain thickness to the texture. Tasty

On tap at T’Brugse in Brugge. Nice refreshing taste. Loke lager, however with certain tones of hoppy.

Cata: Graduación: 6º Aspecto: De color dorado, transparente muy brillante, y con abundante carbonatación. La corona de espuma formada al servirla es de gran amplitud, de color blanco y muy buena retención, dejando un atractivo rastro de encaje en la copa con cada trago. Aroma: De carácter afrutado, principalmente a cítricos. Le acompañan aromas especiados y notas a levadura. Se percibe también un ligero fondo floral, producto del lúpulo. Sabor y textura: Cerveza de cuerpo medio y de fácil trago, de sabor afrutado, algo ácido y un poco malteado. Comienza con un dulzor a malta, producto de las 4 maltas empleadas en su elaboración, acompañada de especias (clavo, pimienta), y fruta, que da paso un punto ácido, que encaja bien con un toque leve de lúpulo, que no proporciona apenas amargor. Finaliza con un regusto marcadamente seco.
