Visit Flanders announced its beer website, www.beerinflanders.com, which encapsulates the beer culture of Belgium.This custom-made website captures all the information about the beers in Flanders, including its history, beer-making processes, beer-related events, breweries and brewpubs in the region and ways to plan a beer trip to Flanders.

Belgium is known for its world class beers and breweries. Beer making is a serious business in the country; the total turnover of beer business is around 2.2 billion euros. Out of the 160 breweries in Belgium, approximately 100 are present in Flanders alone.

Belgium offers 1500 different beers and boasts of its beer culture. With an amalgamation of family-run breweries as well as bigger brands, the Flemish brewing culture is a fitting display of the region’s cutting-edge craftsmanship. This richness in variety, flavour, character and unique craftsmanship that creates the inimitable Belgian brew are attributed to the male and female brewers alike. Several women-run breweries and female beer experts have been fundamental in defining the dynamics of the beer industry in Flanders.

Connoisseurs favour Belgian beers for their variety, real flavour and character. The choices are endless in Belgian ales, raspberry beer, white beer, abbey and trappist beer and the beer that Belgium is most famous for – the lambic and geuze.

Speaking at the launch of this unique website, Sunil Puri, managing director – representative office for tourism, Flanders and Brussels, Belgium in India said, “It is our pleasure to introduce the new website that serves as a guide to the world of Belgian beers. Through the introduction to our dedicated website on Flemish beers, we want to familiarise people with the rich beer-making culture and inform them about the various fun activities and events one can enjoy with these beers. We hope more people can experience this extensive tradition through exciting brewery-visits, beer events, beer trails, walks and tours on their next trip to Flanders.”
