Open up all your senses. Take your time. Enjoy the taste of beer.
Belgian beer is at the pinnacle of quality craft beer and is now a top reference on a global level, attracting the same status as Scottish whisky or Italian wine. So what makes ‘brewed in Belgium’ so special? Top of the charts has to be our respect for centuries-old tradition. We don’t mean to say that we are living in a dusty beer museum. Far from it. Many brewers here are using brand-spanking new, gleaming stainless steel brewing kettles and have access to fermentation and maturation tanks that are forever increasing in size. In the brewery labs everything is analysed down to the minutest detail. This is how the brewers manage to produce beers of consistent quality. After all, this is what the average beer drinker looks for in their beer.
The Palm Brewery receives over 20,000 visitors per annum. Palm offers an experience that is far more than a simple tour. You start off in d’Oude Bottelarij, the visitor centre, with a beer. There are rarities, unfiltered Palm for example,that you won’t easily find anywhere else. In the meantime, you watch a film about the company. Then it’s on to the brewery to soak up your guide’s explanation of the brewing process from start to finish. The tour starts off in the brewing halls, both historical and contemporary. This is followed by an introduction to the herb cellar, the fermentation chambers, the bottling plant and the distribution hall. (Photo by Visit Antwerp Jan Crab)
