New product online: Cornet 33 cl

Cornet is a top-fermented beer produced by a brewery called De Hoorn.Cornet

De Hoorn was a small brewery at Steenhuffel that has disappeared over time. But Palm Craft Brewers decided to rebuild the brewery in order to brew small craft beers in a very low quantity (they will be called ‘Arthur’s legacy’). The first beer by ‘De Hoorn’ is already a straight hit: Cornet.

And today I’m introducing it to you. It’s now available to order on my webshop.

This exclusive beer is a blond Belgian beer with a subtle wood, vanilla and bitter flavor. It has a 8,5 % alcohol level.

Important: Cornet won gold at the World Beer awards! (WBA)

Tip: if you like Duvel, don’t hesitate to order this one, you will love it.

You should definitely try it!

Background …??!

Hi there!

Quick message to let you know that I’m working on a new background for the beer bottles. I like this background a lot! I have no photoshop experience, but tried some tutorials to make my logo look ‘burned’ into the wood. I like! But it has to be smaller of course. What do you think?

Any suggestions?

Love,

Cathy

Historium & Duvelorium

Hello everyone!

This weekend we payed a little visit to our neighbors 🙂

We started out at the Historium. You really need to go there with an open mind. It’s more of an experience and attraction than a museum. You are led into different chambers and with the audio guide you can follow a story. It’s made really life like with special effects (music, scent, objects)… It’s an ‘ancient’ love story (15th century), but I will not tell you anything about the content. No spoilers ;-). I think the tour was about 35 minutes.

After that you can have a drink at the Duvelorium. If you adore Duvel, you really need to go there. And you will definitely go crazy. I added some pictures so you can get an idea. Sorry for the poor iPhone-quality, but I didn’t have my fancy camera with me…

You can also buy three little beers to taste the different beers of Moortgat. You always get other beers. This time we had a ‘La Chouffe‘, ‘Maredsous‘ and ‘Liefmans‘. Price: 8,5 euros. (Click on the beers to order them online at my webshop Taste Belgium)

After that, you should of course visit the Bruges Beer Museum. It’s next door! 

See you soon?!

Préaris Quadrupel

Hi folks!

Here I am again 🙂

We tasted another beer last night, the Préaris Quadrupel.

In 2011 it was chosen to be the best hobby beer in Belgium. It has a 10% alcohol level.

We have chosen this beer, because it is brewed nereby! Only 5 kilometers from our door.  Unbelievable, right? The brewery is called ‘Vliegende paard brouwers’. If I try to translate it from Dutch to English: ‘The flying horse brewers’. Crazy name 😉

It has an aroma of burned malt, caramel, a little bit of vanilla & dark fruit. I think it would perfectly fit after a meal, as a dessert.

Cheers!

New product online: Martin’s IPA

Hi everybody!

And again… a new beer online.  Also rather new and hoppy! I guess you are starting to know my favorite beers now… 🙂

Visit Palm Breweries

Hi there!

Last week I visited the Palm Brewery. It was very interesting and I took some pictures for you. You can check them out in my gallery below.

I also followed a course to improve my beer tapping skills 😉 It was very interesting and fun. Now I know how to tap the perfect pint. And now I also know why people sometimes get headaches from their beer. There are definitely some no-no’s, for example pulling your glass up and down while tapping.

Watch out bartenders… 🙂

 

 

 

Good news everyone!

Hello!

Good news everyone!
The Bruges Beer Museum is opening very very soon. It’s opening in the month of July.

It will be a fun and innovative way to get to know more about beer. You can go around and scan items with an iPad and there are even some tastings included in your visit. Definitely exciting!

Follow my blog and you will keep you updated, I promise 😉

Love,
Cathy.
