There are so many breweries in Belgium, but only few of them are on our shelves. Among them, the Jessenhofke brewery, brewery of the Senne, brewery De Plukker, brewery of the Abbey de Brogne and many others.
All our breweries with which we collaborate have the particularity to be microbreweries and come exclusively from Belgium. Moreover, they all
offer organic beers, one of our fundamental values. Some of them are even gluten-free! And that’s something!
For a beer to be organic, it must meet certain criterias. First, 95% of the beer’s ingredients must be produced organically (no GMOs, synthetic fertilizers or pesticides). Secondly, the brewery must be able to prove that the remaining non-organic ingredients were not available in sufficient quantities and/or did not meet the quality criteria. Finally, it is important that these non-organic ingredients are listed by the Federal Department of Agriculture.
For beer lovers and gluten intolerant or celiac people or anyone else who wants to try new
things, we offer some gluten free beers. These beers are unfortunately difficult to find in supermarkets and it’s a shame.
In most countries, for a beer to be considered gluten free, it must contain less than 20 parts per million. Gluten-free beers mean that no products or foods with gluten have come into contact with the beer. So rest assured, a gluten-free beer is completely suitable for coeliacs.
All our beers come from microbreweries. Microbreweries are small beer producers. The principle appeared in the United Kingdom in the late 1970’s. In this type of place, the beer is brewed by hand and in limited quantities. If the production exceeds 100 000ml per year, it is no longer considered a microbrewery, it becomes a brewery.
