A Belgian Safari
Visitors from the Middle-East
06 / 2014
The Café Belge team from The Ritz-Carlton (DIFC, Dubai) visiting Belgium. As I wanted to show them my beer culture, where I am so passionate about, we had to start with some beers that really defined the Belgian world of beer.
Lambic and gueuze
These beer styles can’t be skipped. Brewer and owner Jean Van Roy guided us through the only lambic brewery in Brussels, with a history that goes 110 years.
"6 out the 10 trappist breweries are located in Belgium."
6 out the 10 trappist breweries are located in Belgium. And the first trappistbeer ever to be commercialized was Westmalle. Time for a tour! The very friendly Manu Pauwels showed us the brewery, and let us taste of the famous Westmalle yeast, that gives the beer its typical aroma of banana.
