The intent of this blog is to inform, educate, and entertain those who enjoy the brews of the greatest beer country, Belgium. I will also talk about Belgian-inspired brews and breweries, beer bars, beer events, and beer stores in the U.S.A. and elsewhere.

Brouwerij Dilewyns beers and Dupont's Cervesia and Biere De Beloeil arrive in U.S.
(Photo, above: Anne-Catherine Dilewyns and Vincent Dilewyns.)
Several fine Belgian brews just arrived stateside, and for the
Wendy Littlefield of Vanberg & Dewulf Importers informed
me yesterday that the first kegs of Vicaris Generaal and
Vicardin Tripel Gueuze have arrived in the U.S.
These beers were brewed at the new Dilewyns brewery in
Dendermonde, East Flanders. I plan to visit during my next trip
The Tripel Gueuze is a blend of Vicardin Tripel and
Girardin White label gueuze. It is a very pleasant mildly
sour beer of 7 % abv. Yum!

Cervesia, aka Posca Rustica stateside.)
Also in the house: Dupont's superb gruut beer, Cervesia.
It is renamed as Posca Rustica for the U.S. market.
Dupont's Bière de Belœil also makes it first appearance
on this side of the pond.
Anyone else getting thirsty for a Belgian beer now???
