WE ARE GOING HERE
did you know ?
In the Middle Ages, the water was often contaminated. One of the alternatives to this problem was to drink wine instead of water! Thus, the monks began to use their agricultural knowledge to produce wine. The Belgian climate, however, was unfavourable for growing grapes, and the monks of this country turned naturally to beer production. The diversity was enormous: strong, delicate, dark, abbey, trappist, lager... and to guarantee the quality of the beers, strict rules were gradually created, and Belgian beers rose in quality and began to gain importance and international fame. However, in the post-war period, due to the severe economic crisis, only ¼ of the Belgian breweries survived. Despite this, Belgian breweries did not allow themselves to be slaughtered, and in the 1970s Belgian beer was rediscovered by the general public and again recognized as an exceptional product. Today, there are more than 1100 Belgian beer brands registered and sold all over the world. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
