When the first regular breweries were founded in the Middle Ages, beer filtration was not a common technology and few mastered it. Among these few were the Fathers of Grimbergen Abbey, who became renowned experts in craft brewing. Their masterpiece was the filtrated Grimbergen Blonde – a pure, smooth, blonde ale with ripe fruit flavours and no cloudiness – that stood out from other beers of the time. Today, it’s still an insider tip among beer connoisseurs around the world.
This beer is suitable for braised and roasted pork and chicken, sandwiches with oily fish, such as salmon, or salads with shrimp and seafood.
