100% hop

From the brown soils of the hop fields, to the brewers’ vats, passing through the recipes of Flemish cooks, hops are everywhere here. It is part of the Flemish DNA. Here it is from every angle!

And not to miss anything...

That’s it, you’re almost ready to know everything about hops! Brush up on your beer knowledge one last time, and get ready to tickle your taste buds!

  • Step 1 : Malt

    Heat the water, add the malt and stir (brew) while paying attention to the temperature of the water. When this mashing step is finished, separate the wort (liquid) from the draff (malt).

  • Step 2: Hops

    Boil the wort, add the hops, and other aromatic ingredients as desired.

  • Step 3: Yeast

    Cool, filter and add the yeast. This is where the fermentation process begins, which will last several weeks.

  • Step 4: Bottling

    Bottle the beer, with a little sugar. The beer will ferment again in the bottle and produce bubbles! A little more patience and it will be ready to drink.
