It’s big business and the Belgians are known to take their beers incredibly seriously, so why not get in on the action and see what all the fuss is about?
Variety Belgian beer ranges from pale lager styles to lambic beers, seasonal varieties and rich Flemish reds with strong beers being common, so there’s something for every taste bud going.
The majority of Belgian beers are sold in tinted Vichy-style glass bottles to protect the nectar from the effects of sunlight, whilst those available on draught tend to be of the pale lager variety. It’s estimated that there’s somewhere in the region of 700 different types of beer to choose from in the country with it exporting 60% of its creations, and that means you can enjoy authentic Belgian beer right here in the UK.
Over the five days of the Tour we will endeavour to visit Belgium’s lambic brewers and blenders: We also aim to visit the best of the specialised lambic cafes of Lambic Land.
By popular demand this Tour is based at the newly refurbished four star Hotel Keizershof in the centre of Aalst.
