Johannes Franciscus Jansen was the longest serving mayor of Tilburg (1869 - 1901) and thereby practically solely responsible for the construction of the Wilhelmina canal which flows into the Pius harbour. This is also the exact place where the Burgemeester Jansen pub was established in 2005. You have to stray off the beaten path to get a beer here, but it's definitely worth the trek. The large interior is decorated sparingly with austere tables, yellowing maps and wooden beer crates as the only embellishments. Roughly a dozen different beers are available on draught and the service is friendly. It's also the only pub in Tilburg with a terrace by the water.
