Artisanal, young and small, but worldly and modern TEXT: BERTHE VAN DEN HURK | PHOTOS: BELGOO BEER

It does not have the hundreds of years of history as some brewers have. In fact, it all started as a hobby. Yet the Belgian Belgoo Brewery, founded in 2007, has grown into an international company, with awardwinning beers. “We are artisanal, young and small, but we have modern equipment and a love for creating great Belgian beer,” says Jo Van Aert, founder of Belgoo. “Based on a mix of different grains such as barley, wheat, spelt and oats, and several richly infused world hops, we brew six different well-balanced Belgoo beers, each with its own character.” The six brews are all bottle fermented and unfiltered to retain a maximum flavour for a longer period. www.belgoobeer.be 42 | Issue 27 | March 2016
