The hop and beer museum in Poperingen

An audio tour guides you through four floors of history and culture of making beer, all the way from the impressive loft to the concluding ground floor. The museum houses about 1700 beers.


On your way down in the museum, local characters like "The Bagger" and "The Nose" will guide you along the four seasons of the hop, historic documents, photographs, scale models and audiovisuals illustrate both the story of this unique building and that of local hop growing, its past and present.


Poperinge's Hop Museum is located in the old "Stadsschaal", in the center of Poperinge, near the Grand Place. You can find it at this address: Gasthuisstraat 71, Poperinge.
