A local nickname led to the city’s most popular beer
The beer (and moniker) Brugse Zot translates to “Bruges fools.”
There’s a quixotic nature emanating throughout Bruges. To outsiders it may seem just as imaginative as its fairytale appearance, but that's only because the majority of the city has remained intact since the Renaissance. Its whimsical mix of celebrating objects that may be perceived as arbitrary serves as a reminder of the importance (and humor) of the region’s Flemish culture. This is apparent in museums dedicated to lamps, lace, fries, and even Holy Blood. Whether you're cruising down a canal or exploring on foot, if the romantic scenery doesn’t melt your heart, traditional Belgian waffles certainly will.
