Brugse Zot Bruin
This dark Belgian beer is the bigger brother of the world famous Brugse Zot Blonde. Made with the same yeast it has hints of banana and clove, but on top of that the roasted and caramel malts and flavours of raisins, dates and figs to make for a gorgeous dark, sticky dubbel-style beer with a surprisingly clean finish.

The Halve Maan is home to two fantastic beer brands – Bruges Zot and Straffe Hendrik. Bruges Zot, which is a reference to the nickname "Bruges fools" given to the townsfolk, produces one of Belgium's best loved golden ales and a fantastic raisin and plummy brun. Meanwhile, Straffe Hendrik is more inspired by the Abbey beers, with a gorgeous tripel, a big dark quad and a barrel-aged version too.
Demand for the brewery has got so large that they had to take bottling off-site, and are currently building a pipe to take beer under the city to reduce the amount of lorries going through Bruges' picturesque streets.
