WHITE BEERS (3 varieties)
White or wheat beers are light, easy drinking, refreshing, unfiltered, hazy, yellow coloured beers from a mixture of raw wheat and barley malt, sometimes oats are added. They are seasoned with coriander and Curaçao orange zest, have a fruity-lemony flavour and a slightly dry, spicy aftertaste. This style of brewing, typical of the region south west of Brussels around the village of Hoegaarden, died out due to the popularity of lagers in the 60’s and was revived and reinvented by Pierre Celis.

TRAPPIST BEERS (12 varieties)
Trappist beers are brewed by or under control of the Trappist monks, in the brewery located within the walls of theirmonasteries, according to the rules of Strict Observance, as laid down by the founder St. Benedictus in the early Middle Ages. There are only six Trappist monasteries in the world, all in Belgium, that can brew beer and can use the legally protected ‘Authentic Trappist Product’ logo. Each monastery has its own style of beer, varying in colour, taste and strength, so it is difficult to compare beers from different monasteries. They are all top fermented and bottle conditioned, medium to full bodied beers,with an alcoholic strength of between 6.2% and 11.3%.

DARK BEERS
(11 varieties)

FRUIT BEERS (14 varieties)
Fruit beers have an added ingredient, which has become the dominant flavour. This determines not only the taste, but also the colour and character of the beer.

BELGIAN SPECIALITIES
  >Lambrink beers - Belgiums answer to cider (4 varieties)
  >Flemish ales (3 varieties)
Traditionally Lambiek are brewed in the region around Brussels in the Zenne vally, and are spontaneously
fermented and oakmatured,made from a mixture of rawwheat and barley malt. No yeast is added at any
stage of the brewing process. Airborne friendly bacteria cause the natural fermentation, which creates the
distinct cider-like tartness of the Lambiek beers.
