Abbey beer 

Abbey beer is a beer brewed by monks. In fact, only abbey beers that are made by monks, wear the title of trappist beer. All around the world there are only 11 breweries that can carry the ATP (Authentic Trappist Product) label and in Belgium we have 6 from those breweries and that’s why Belgium is also called the spiritual home of trappist beer! The darker beers are called double and the heavier blonde is called triple. Most famous ones are: Leffe, Westmalle, Grimbergen,… And not to forget Westvleteren, which was crowned as one of the best beers in the world!

 

Speciality beer

A third type of beer are the speciality beers. The most famous here is probably Duvel. A beer with a subtle bitterness, refined flavor and a distinctive hop character, 8,5% of alcohol and my personal favorite!

Small fact: one out of a 1000 bottles doesn’t have the normal 2 devils on the label but a devil and an angel, so if you are lucky and order one at a bar be sure to check the label 😉

Belgian wines & Sparkling wine

What most people don’t know is that in Belgium more and more vineyards are popping up. A yearly production of about 550.000 liters of wine in 2016 and rising every year. 40% for sparkling wines, 40% for white wines and 20% for red wines. The amount of production of wines in Belgium will rise and this due to the climate changes which make our grounds every year better and better to produce quality wines.
