The Best of Belgium Beers – Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and Leffe
Belgium is renowned for its vibrant and diverse beer culture. A rich tradition of culinary invention and improvisation, combined with centuries of brewing passion and expertise, helped craft a stunning variety of beer styles enjoyed around the world. Stella Artois’ rich brewing heritage dates back to 1366 in Leuven, Belgium, where it was first brewed to celebrate the holiday season. Traditional malted barley and the highest quality European hops give Stella Artois its full flavor and delicately crisp finish. Hoegaarden is the Original Belgian Wheat Beer, dating back to the 15th Century. A naturally cloudy beer, Hoegaarden features a secret to its refreshing flavor and spicy nose: real Curacao orange peel and a dash of coriander. Leffe Blonde was first brewed in 1240 by the monks of the Abbaye de Nortre Dame de Leffe in Belgium. A spicy, faintly clove-like aroma is balanced by Leffe’s creamy body and restrained dry finish.
