For the Beer Lovers – Belgium Edition

18 Apr

My last and definitely not least beer lover’s edition is taking a look in Belgium. There are over 800 varieties of beer brewed in the country of Belgium. If you remember the last couple of posts I’ve written that’s over 6,000 types of beer brewed in just a few countries.  For those avid beer lovers out there, this can mean great beer tours in Europe and lots of different beer tasting!

In my research, I found a great site that includes most of those beers for this country. The list entails beer name, brewery name, type of beer and the percentage of alcohol in each. Depending on which type of beer is your favorite can determine which breweries you can see. For being such a small country, 800 breweries sure seems like a whole lot of places producing beer. I haven’t had the opportunity to try very many Belgian beers, but I can say I have a few favorites of the ones I have been able to try.

It wasn’t until 1708 that a brew master, Sebastian Artois, was able to purchase the brewery. After his purchase he brewed a special batch at Christmas time that included a star on the bottle and named the brew Stella. The rest is history! If you drink Stella you will see the star is still included on every bottle.

I have to say with Belgium on the list of places to see the Stella Brewery is a must see! Having 800 different beers brewed in that country makes it a little hard to determine which other ones to see. How do we prioritize which ones to see over others? Ask locals? Ask people who’ve visited the country before? What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below and let me know what you think.

Thank you for reading!
