(CNN) — Beer aficionados the world over flock to Belgium for its internationally renowned brews.
The tiny country of less than 12,000 square miles has more than 800 years of experience -- monks first began brewing behind abbey walls back in the 12th century.
This ancient tradition of Trappist beer still lives on today alongside centuries-old family breweries scattered across Belgium.
Belgian breweries' time-honored methods produce outstanding beer, but they're not always equipped to welcome curious visitors. In fact, most abbeys prohibit guests from entering altogether.
But these seven breweries are more than ready to welcome you on your next trip.
