Under his leadership, in July 2005 the real Bruges' beer on the market - The Bruges Zot. It is a traditional golden or brown beer of high fermentation, with the best ingredients? Like czech ic hop to it a rich taste to give. The name? Bruges Zot? is the nickname that Maximilian of Austria ever gave the locals, when she asked him for a new zothuis and he claimed that he had seen Bruges only fools and that this in itself is a zothuis was.
