Let’s face it, the love of Belgians for craft beers is not new and it’s not going to fade away anytime soon!
Microbreweries have continued to flourish all over Belgium in recent years. This is also the case in Manhay, in the Ardennes, where the Oster brewery caught our attention and its 7.2% blonde seduced our taste buds. Creamy and tasty, with a very reasonable bitterness and a pleasant cereal flavour. It even has a slight hint of cardamom!
Also, don’t hesitate to enter the Brasserie d’Oster, it’s a nice place to stop and taste the creations of the house and grab a bite to eat!
A light and flavoursome AND ale, it’s like having your cake and eating it.
When you know it’s made in Liege with 100% natural ingredients it’s even better. When putting the finishing touches to his recipe, the creator-brewer Simon Charlier even called in the help of fifty participant testers! We just can’t resist this latest little number from La Bestiale, with its herbal notes and delicate citrus aromas which are reminiscent of summer! A remedy for gloomy weather? Facebook
And not because it’s from Liège! It’s a special beer, a pale ale (it exists in brown and amber, but we prefer it pale) which is ideal because it’s tasty and light. We haven’t taken advanced training in zythology, but our main argument is that we’ve already tasted quite a lot of beer (hic) and this is the one we prefer. We’re talking about it here because we’ve had it at all our drinks parties, barbecues and games nights this year (errrrr, we’re planning a mineral water tour next month)!
It’s on sale at our new favourite neighbour’s (and elsewhere): “Pied-à-Terre”, rue Saint-Rémy.
We’ve found and tested the perfect guide for groups of friends torn between going for a walk or going for a drink. It’s an opportunity see some sights in a different way, walking through the magnificent rolling hills of Belgium to reach an abbey that brews a beer that you would be wise to taste.
We recommend that you buy this book from a bookshop that we love and you’ll soon understand why: Toutes Directions.
