Over 1,300 volunteers pay tribute to the hops during the triennial Beer & Hops Festival. Because since the Middle Ages, the commodity has been central in Poperinge.
Today, no fewer than 18 hop growers in this region dedicate themselves to maintaining their 160 hectares of hop fields with passion.
Poperinge is synonymous with hops. And whoever says hops, says beer. Which beers and how many you will discover in the hop museum or on one of the hop farms. You will learn all about the history, the picking and the processing. Worth a visit!
