Water, malt, hops and yeast are the four basic ingredients used to brew beer. Find out how and where we source these basic ingredients.
We buy the malt from domestic and foreign malt houses, where barley is soaked in water to germinate and become malt. Given that malt determines the color, aroma and flavor of our beers, we select it very carefully.
Beer owes its bitter taste to the hop cones of the female hop plant. The hop for our beers comes from all over the world, including from Germany, the Czech Republic and the United States. We also often buy hop cones in our own country, more specifically in Poperinge.
The alcohol in beer forms after yeast has been added. Every beer has a specific taste depending on the type of yeast strain used. We use three types of fermentation: top, spontaneous and mixed fermentation.
To give our beers a unique taste, we add sugar, spices, fruit or even liqueur to certain beers.
Of course, we cannot reveal all our secrets, but we are happy to share some of them below:
