How to discover Alost during this beer tasting tour with our zythologist?
“Oilsjt” (Flemish slang for Alost) does not only stand for its famous carnival and the “ajoin”, a nickname that dates back to the 19th century when the city and districts around Aalst flourished thanks to onion farming. Discover the main square, the Grote Markt, with all its historic buildings. Let yourself be captivated by the rich past of the city behind the mask!
Our beer guide teaches you the real way to taste beer, something that you do with all your senses: hearing, seeing, smelling and tasting. He tells thirst-quenching stories about the café, the characteristics of the beer and its brewery.
An ideal way to discover Alost in combination with tasting delicious local and artisanal beers! An absolute must as a team building activity.
