Who are we

Who we are

Life should always be about following our passions, and for Rene Bemelmans, the founder of Bacchus, loja de cerveja Belga, the journey until now has not disappointed!

As so often begins many great adventures, Rene moved to Portugal from Belgium for love. He brought with him a passion for Belgian beer and the goal of bringing a piece of the famous Belgian beer culture into Portugal’s homes, bars and restaurants.

For Rene, the rich and historic wine culture here in Portugal seemed to hint at a great potential for the people to fall in love with the extraordinary quality and diversity to be found in beer culture too.

With this idea in mind, Bacchus, loja de cerveja Belga, was born in Viseu in 2017 and continues to grow thanks to Rene’s desire to hear each customer say “What a wonderful beer this was…”

As there is so much to discover within the world of Belgian beers, we hope that you will stay a while and explore our products. Hopefully, you will find yourself somewhat thirsty!
