Our beer menu

Abbey Ales

Many of these beers are produced under license from an associated monastery, which receives a royalty on each bottle sold. Such is the commercial cachet of the abbey connection, a good many beers exist which, while trying to imply a monastic connection, actually have none.

Belgian Ales

The "ordinary" ales of Belgium are frequently anything other than ordinary. Generally bronze or copper in colour and relatively low in alcohol many of these ales were developed as a response to the encroachment of Pilsner-style lagers in the 1920s.

Brown Ales

Brown ales are a particular speciality of East Flanders, but are of course brewed all over Belgium. Beers designated as Old Browns blends of young and old beers. They are frequently quite acidic, although not as much so as lambics. Some brewers infuse their brown ales with fruit in a similar manner to the lambic brewers.

Golden Ales

This is not a designation commonly used within Belgium itself, but it is a useful way of describing a number of strong, light beers. Expect an alcohol content in the region of 8% or more and a light, almost Pilsner-like colour.

Lambics

Brewed using stale hops and fermented using wild yeasts, bacteria and a cocktail of many other (often unidentified) micro-organisms. Matured for maybe 3 to 5 years in cobweb covered wooden casks. Frequently so sour and acidic that the first mouthful can come as a shock. Often infused with fruits. Lambics should be totally disgusting and un-drinkable beers, but on the contrary, they make some of the most delicious, remarkable and refreshing beers you could ever drink.

Red Beers

Red beers are a particular speciality of West Flanders. They get their colour from the dark malts used in their production. Like gueuzes, red beers tend to be blends of old and young brews. To make the similarities greater, they are sour, although never so sour as the most extreme gueuzes and often it is barely noticeable.

Saisons

Very much a Walloon speciality, particularly from the west of the Hainaultprovince, these beers are not at all common in Flanders. As the name suggests these are seasonal beers traditionally brewed during the cooler months of the year, to be drunk during the summer. Many Saison brewers can trace their history back to traditional farmhouse breweries.

Speciality Beers

Belgian brewers produce so many distinctive beers that it's impossible to categorise them all. Some are in styles that are restricted to a particular province, some just to a single town or are even produced by just one brewer. Some are ancient traditional styles, others have been invented in recent decades. Try as many as you can; undoubtedly you will detest some, but you will most certainly find others which delight you and make you want to come back for more.

Trappist Beers

Once upon a time, when drinking water wasn't to be trusted, every abbey brewed its own beer to sustain its monks and provide refreshment for visitors. Only beer brewed under the direct supervision of Trappist monks may be designated as "Trappist" beer. There are currently seven such breweries, six inBelgium plus a single Trappist brewery in the Netherlands.

White Beers

Hoegaarden re-established the popularity of wheat beers in Belgium; they had all but died out by the mid-seventies. Unfortunately, Hoegaarden has been dumbed-down a fair bit by InBev, who are planning to close down the brewery and transfer production to their Jupille factory. Perhaps the greatest service Hoegaarden has rendered is to remind the British drinker that a beer that's cloudy isn't necessarily off. The protein haze that is typical of wheat beers only disappears when they've had all the flavour filtered and pasteurised out of them. Spices are very commonly added to Belgian wheat beers.
