Hoegaarden is a white beer (wheat beer). Its origins date back to 1445.   The last commercial white beer brewery in Hoegaarden closed his doors in 1957. Pierre Celis, a milkman, decided some ten years later to try to revive the style. He began the new brewery in his hayloft. Celis used the traditional ingredients of water, yeast, wheat, hops, coriander and dried Curaçao orange peel known as Laraha. Hoegaarden is unfiltered and therefore cloudy in appearance.


Leffe Brown

Leffe BROWN is an authentic abbey beer with a traditional recipy from the abbey of “leffe” in Belgium. It has a delicate flavor of Vanilla and Clove and an aroma of toffee and Caramel. It’s deep brown colour is due to the process of dark roasting the Malt. It goes well with spicy or sweet dishes and can also be used as an aperitif or a pass time with friends on a late evening.

 Leffe Blond

The unique recipy of Leffe Blond is the result of centuries of brewing know how. It balances a wide range of flavours. Leffe Blond is an elegant, gentle and fruity Beer with a touch of bitter orange. The bright sunny colour is due to the use of pale malt. Goes well with almost every dish or try it as an aperitif.

Maredsous Beer is brewed by the Benedictine Monks of Maredsous Abbey in Belgium.


Maredsous Blonde 6

Maredsous Blonde 6 was the first ale to be brewed by the abbey. Elegant and fresh, with a harmoniously fruity aroma and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Still prized by the monks as a drink to accompany their lunch. This is a delectable Blonde ale with sprightly fruitiness, soft malting, and a slightly dry, gently-hopped, refreshing finish.


Maredsous Bruin 8

Maredsous Bruin 8 was blended by Father Attout, whose aim was to brew an aromatic ale for Christmas. His creation, with a delicate caramel bouquet, has become an indispensable fixture for beer lovers.  A rich mahogany-brown Dubbel ale, with a delicate body, creamy head, and lush bouquet. Within its velvety taste you will discover subtle hints of dark fruit, chocolate, and toffee.



Duvel is a 100% pure, natural beer, with no additives or preservatives. And you will taste that difference straight away. Its 8.5% vol alcohol content, enormous head, delicate sparkle and silky soft feeling in the mouth make Duvel an angelic beer with a devilish after-effect.

Vedett Extra White ( from the same brewery as Duvel) has a delicious refreshing taste, surprisingly crisp, with an orange and lemon lime zest, rounded with a mildly bitter taste and dry finish. To fully develop the taste palette, the beer is refermented in the bottle and keg for several weeks. An expertise that the Duvel Moortgat brewery is world renowned for. That is why you need to swirl the bottle before you pour it out to mix the ferments on the bottom of the bottle in with the beer.
