Gruuthuse Museum
Before hops came into vogue, brewers used gruit, an old-fashioned herbal mix, to give beer its flavor. This medieval mansion is the house that gruit built, and contains all the trappings of a wealthy family in the Middle Ages, including tools, furniture, silver and gold objects and a startlingly realistic terra-cotta bust of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, under whose rule the city prospered.
