A Belgian abbey made a three grain beer in the 1600's and inspired Bosteels, a Flemish family brewery based in the small town of Buggenhout, to create Tripel Karmeliet in 1997 from barley, rye and wheat. Very refined and complex with hints of vanilla mixed with citrus aromas, Tripel Karmeliet has the lightness and freshness of wheat, the creaminess of oats together with a spicy lemon dryness. Tripel Karmeliet is a very refined and complex golden-to-bronze brew with a fantastic creamy head.
Duvel has a fruity dry aroma, owed to the finest hops, that reminds experts like Michael Jackson of Poire William concerning its bouquet and pallet. Its dry but still alcohol-sweet flavour makes the beer an excellent thirst-quencher, with a pronounced hop aroma. Thanks to the balance between a fine aroma and subtle bitterness, this beer occupies a unique position in the rich Belgian Beer tradition. Duvel is the perfect companion for appetisers, digestives and every other occasion.

Why not try Japan's favourite dark beer? Brewed in Osaka, Asahi Black is made from three different roasted malts. This gives it a rich, nutty flavour and makes it incredibly smooth-drinking. Unlike other, more bitter dark beers and stouts, it's brewed in a process called bottom fermentation, which gives it a subtle, sweet edge and smooth 5% abv. All of which makes for a truly warming experience.
Traditional Belgian wits are filtered, thin and tart. They're brewed with wheat, Curacao orange peel and coriander. The Curacao orange is sour, and it gives Belgian wits their tartness. This recipe was the starting point used for reference. The beer is orange-amber in colour with a cloudy appearance because it is unfiltered. Blue Moon has a more pronounced orange flavour than many other beers of the style, and also has a slightly sweet flavour. The grain bill for Blue Moon includes malted barley, white wheat, and oats. Blue Moon Brewing Company is all about Artfully Crafting beers to make them inviting and easy to enjoy, so they set about reinterpreting the Belgian wit to be smoother and more approachable. Unfiltered: For more depth of flavour, and a unique, cloudy appearance. Brewed with Oats: The oats give it a nice, creamy body, so it's not too thin. Brewed with Valencia Orange Peel: Valencia orange peel gives Blue Moon Belgian White a subtle sweetness, so our beer isn't tart. Overall profile: The flavour starts out crisp and tangy and ends creamy, finishing slowly with a residual coriander and orange spiciness - brought out even further when garnished with a slice of orange.

Meantime brewmaster,Alastair Hook, has spent 20 years planning the quintessential English lager. His reasoning is simple.The great European lager brewers use very soft water and neutral yeasts to ensure that only the flavours of their locally grown malt and hops come to the fore. East Anglia is home to the world's finest malting barley and Kent is home to some of the world's best hops. Midway between the two, London is ideally placed to bring them together in a straightforward, clean, long-matured, unpasteurised lager, where all you can taste is malt and hop. Food Pairings: The hops in Meantime London Lager enable it to stand up much better than most lagers to stronger flavours such as mature cheeses, hams and smoked meats, or oily fish.
