Johanna Chocolate and Beer Cruise


Chocolate & Beer Cruise
If you ask someone what Belgium is famous for, you will most likely get chocolate or beer for an answer. Hardly surprising when you consider the delicious flavors and high quality products that this country produces. With the KR-Line chocolate and beer canal barge route, we will take you from one tasty sensation to another, introducing you to the finest of treats.
Taste the most renowned of all the Belgian Beers, the Westvleteren, which can only be found at a small local tavern near the abbey where it is brewed. But of course, the delightful sensations don't stop there. You can also visit the Hop museum in Poperinge and the biscuit factory of Jules Destrooper. You will be able to savor a delightful cold Trappist beer in the Newport (B) harbor, accompanied by the most delicious and fresh shrimps you have ever tasted.
For those who have a sweet tooth, the Chocolat-Line, located in Bruges, will open up a whole new world of chocolate. You have to admit that a chocolate snuff or chocolates with a sea-fruit taste are not something you will easily find at a local market near you.
