Belgium is a beer-lover's paradise, with over 1.500 different original beers, many with their own personalized beer glasses in which that beer, and only that beer, may be served. The shape of each glass is made to enhance the flavor of the beer for which it is designed. This strict beer separatism may seem like behavior usually reserved for wine snobbery, but Belgians do take their beer seriously - and with good reason. Belgium has enjoyed an unparalleled reputation for its specialty beers since the Middle Ages.
Connoisseurs favor Belgian beers for their variety, real flavor and character. The choices are endless when you consider Belgian ales, raspberry or cherry beer, white beer, Flanders ‘Old’ red and brown, Abbey and Trappist beer and of course the beer that Belgium is most famous for - the lambic and geuze.
