The impressive Abbey of Affligem is your starting point for the 2CV ride through the 'Hoppestreek' region. The link with hops is not far away. The beer Affligem isn't brewed here anymore, but the ancient recipe of the monks is followed exactly as written. On the square of Asse you will be face-to-face with the Hopsdevil. He guards the cosy terraces which invite you to have a drink. The route leads you along hopsfields and old breweries, abbeys and churches which remind us of the once thriving hops cultivation in this surprising piece of nature near Brussels. The local pubs and restaurants have nice beers and specialities on the menu with local hops. On the road you should taste the abbey beers of Affligem, Dubbel, Blonde or Tripel which all won rightly many titles at international tastings..
