Discover Beer Belgium

It could be lager, brown ale, or white, and sometimes flavoured with cherries. Belgium produces no less than 400 different types of this drink made from barley and hops, whose tradition goes back more than 2,000 years. Previously, the fermentation was spontaneous, being done with the yeasts naturally present in the air. Today, only the Cantillon brewery perpetuates this method of manufacture. The other beers are cultured at a low temperature for the lager, and at room temperature for the brown ale. The proportion of hops determines the degree of bitterness, however, this plant is also a natural preservative.
