Belgian beers - diversity and tradition combined

Belgian beers are known worldwide for their diversity and unique brewing tradition. With a wide range of styles and flavors, they offer beer lovers an unparalleled experience. From complex abbey beers to refreshing lambics, Belgian beers are a true masterpiece of the art of brewing.

The rich history of Belgian beers

The history of Belgian beers dates back to the Middle Ages. Monasteries played a crucial role in the development of these beers, as monks developed sophisticated brewing techniques that are still used today. Many of the famous Belgian beers have their roots in these religious communities.

Popular styles of Belgian beers

  • Trappist beer: These beers are brewed in Trappist monasteries and are known for their strong and complex flavors.
  • Abbey beer: Abbey beers are brewed using similar methods to Trappist beers, but are less strictly regulated.
  • Lambic: A spontaneous fermentation beer brewed in the Brussels region, often flavored with fruits such as cherries (Kriek) or raspberries (Framboise).
  • Saison: A beer originally brewed for seasonal workers, characterized by its dry and slightly spicy taste.
  • Dubbel and Tripel: Strong beers with a higher alcohol content and rich, malty aromas.

The brewing process of Belgian beers

Belgian beers are brewed with special yeast strains and often in open fermentation vats, resulting in unique flavor profiles. Many beers are also matured in bottles, allowing them to ferment further and develop their complexity.

A special feature of the brewing process is the use of caramel malts and candy sugar, which gives the beers their characteristic sweetness and fullness. Some styles, such as Lambic, also use wild yeasts and bacteria to achieve natural fermentation.

Popularity of Belgian beers worldwide

Despite its small size, Belgium has a major influence on global beer culture. Belgian beers are very popular in many countries and have won numerous international awards. They are appreciated by beer connoisseurs and gourmets alike and can often be found in the best beer bars and at beer festivals worldwide. The variety and quality of Belgian beers contribute to their worldwide recognition.

Well-known Belgian breweries

  • Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat: Known for their strong, blond beer Duvel.
  • Brouwerij Westvleteren: One of the Trappist breweries known for its rare and highly prized beers.
  • Brouwerij Chimay: Produces a range of Trappist beers that are popular worldwide.
  • Brouwerij Boon: Famous for its lambics and gueuzes.
  • Brouwerij Rodenbach: Known for its barrel-aged, sour beers.

Cultural significance and enjoyment

Belgian beers are an important part of Belgian culture and were recognized as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2016. They are often served in special glasses that bring out the aromas and flavors.

These beers can also be enjoyed in combination with Belgian specialties such as mussels, cheese and chocolate. The versatility of Belgian beers makes them the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes.

How long can Belgian beers be stored and how should they be stored?

Many Belgian beers, especially the stronger ones such as Trappist and Abbey beers, can be stored for several years. Ideally, they should be stored at a constant, cool temperature and out of direct sunlight. A cellar or a special beer refrigerator is ideal for this. They should be stored upright to minimize contact between the beer and the cork and to prevent oxidation. Long storage allows the aromas to develop further, which increases the complexity and depth of the beer.
