The Original Belgian Wheat Beer, Anno 1445
Almost 600 years ago in the Belgian village of Hoegaarden®, a band of monks experimented by adding oddball botanicals from halfway around the world to their traditional wheat beer. Our recipe, inspired by their creation, is a beer with a refreshing flavor and captivating aroma, unlike any in the world. You might call it divine inspiration… we call it Hoegaarden®
Hoegaarden® is a smooth and easy-to-drink beer. Naturally low bitterness (IBUs), Hoegaarden® is a uniquely refreshing and easy-to-drink beer, especially for beer drinkers taking a step up from mainstream lagers. You’ll discover surprising ingredients: wheat, Curaçao orange peel, and coriander. The Hoegaarden® brewing process is unique and extremely complex.
