Brugse Zot Dubbel is a brown version of the city beer. It is brewed with 6 special malts, which give the beer a unique and rich aroma. The world-famous Czech Saaz hop from Zatec was chosen, which gives the beer a unique bitter touch. Brugse Zot Dubbel is a full-bodied and heavier beer that appeals to enthusiasts.
To welcome Maximilian of Austria to their proud town, the people of Bruges organised a colourful parade of merrymakers and fools. When they asked him at the end of the day to provide money for a new madhouse he replied : ‘Today I have seen nothing but fools. Bruges is already one large madhouse !’ Since then the people of Bruges are called ‘Brugse Zotten’ (fools of Bruges).
