THE COUNTRY: BELGIUM THE BEER MECCA
Probably the closest place to heaven on earth for most beer geeks is Belgium. Undoubtedly, Belgium is the country of beer. Which other one can offer more than 1220 beer brands and such a diversity of brewing techniques including Lambic, Kriek and Trappist?
To satisfy the quality requirements of this enormous variety of beers, Belgian maltsters have developed over the centuries an entire spectrum of base and specialty malts. Belgium is a malting paradise, exporting its malts to more than 120 countries all over the world. The unique properties of Belgian malts are essential to all famous Belgian beers just as much as the unique brewing processes.
Belgian malts offer qualities and performance profiles that differ markedly from malts produced anywhere else. They have unique characteristics in terms of flavour, clarity of wort, colour, yield, and other parameters.
