Drinking hole in Ghent


Belgium is a great country with the best and most interesting beer in the whole wide world.

Can anybody tell me a Pub in Ghent with oeconomic beer prices?

In Belgium there are big differences from Pub to Pub.

Sometimes a beer cost 2 € and sometimes the same stuff costs the double of that.

As everything now gets more expansiv I would like to have a good beer bargain in Ghent.

Hi Wendy,

Welcome. You'll find search engines like google are pretty good for factual information.

"ghent supermarkets" in google returned this result -

There's a little GB on Hoogport. And a Spar near Verlorenkost.

But if it's beer you want to buy go to the Hopduvel warehouse (no relation to the temporarily defunct cafe) on Coupure Links:


You don't have to buy by the case, you can pick up individual bottles. Trams 21 and 22 stop round the corner if your bags get too heavy!

There are small sized supermarkets in the city center. "GB": Vrijdagmarkt and "Delhaize" : Kouter. The biggest supermarket is Carrefour at the outskirts of town (Sint Denijs Westrem : Kortrijksesteenweg , direction of the artist village of Sint Martens Latem). Regarding beer you can buy it in specialist shops (there is a new one at the Kraanlei-close to the castle- , do not know the name but hard to miss) or in night shops.

Strange nobody mentions café Trollenkelder at Bij St. Jacobs 17. Large selection of beers there as well.
