And that’s a well-deserved title, because we take our beer seriously. Our small country has an unparalleled reputation for its specialty beers, ever since the Middle Ages. Up to this day the enormous quality is met by an unmatched quantity: there are more than 1.500 original Belgian beers. That includes, among others, Belgian ales, raspberry or cherry beer, wheat beer, Flanders ‘Old’ red and brown, Abbey beer, lambic, gueuze and – the grandest of them all – Trappist.
And to honour those, we pay attention to every little detail. Many of our fine beers have their own tailored glass in which that beer, and only that one, can be served. That eye for detail makes us the greatest beer nation in the world.
