Beer is brewed all over the world, but Belgium is considered the best producer. The beer culture in Belgium is so important that it has been added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
You will realise the importance of beer in this country just by walking through the streets. Moreover, many chefs use beer in their dishes and pair their dishes with the perfect beer.
There are many types of Belgian beers, but the two most popular are Trappist beers and Abbey beers.
Why Belgian beers are so famous all over the world?
In addition to the typical fermentations (top and bottom), Belgian brewers use two other methods:
- Spontaneous fermentation: the microflora most suitable for spontaneous fermentation is found around Brussels so this region is known for Lambic and Gueuze beers.
- Mixed fermentation: it consists of mixing young and old beer and the most famous brewery is Izegem brewery.
Moreover, Belgian beers are so famous because of their excellence in quality and for their great variety. Tradition is very important and appreciated, but there is still room for creativity.
