The Belgian Brewer at the Henley Show 2018

The Henley Show

Firstly we’d like to say a huge thank you to all our friends and family who came along to see us for The Belgian Brewer soft launch event at The Henley Show last week, we couldn’t have got to where we are today without your support, motivation, and love.

Now… on with the show – and what a show it was!. Once again the organisers of the Annual Henley Show out did themselves.

For a modest entry fee, visitors could expect:

  • Food & Wine Tent
  • Jousting
  • Classic Cars
  • Climbing Wall
  • Dog Show
  • Ferret Racing
  • Giant Tortoises
  • Sheep Show
  • Horse Show
  • Shopping arcade
  • Zorbing
  • Vintage Tractors

The list goes on….

Unsurprisingly we were positioned in the Food & Wine tent with our good friends from The Oaken Grove Vineyard – who make exceptionally good English Wines in Fawley (just a stones throw from the Henley Show grounds).

The day started off quietly in the tent, with most of the visitors clearly enjoying the morning sunshine and the fresh crisp country air. But all was about to change at 11 o’clock… clearly those rumbling tummies got the better of them,  sure enough they came flocking into the tent to experience a veritable feast of premium food and drinks, including; meats, cheeses, wines, homemade sauces, fresh baked goods, cake stalls, and of course Belgian Style Beers.

We were giving out tastings of our four best Belgian Style Beers:

Tripel – our signature brew, a full flavour, 9% Belgian Style beer that never ceases to impress –  orange peel ,coriander and honey notes give the ultimate mouth fill, yet never over powered by the alcohol

Saison  – Our lighter style session beer, easy to drink, refreshing and crisp.

Dubbel – coffee chocolatey notes with a smooth creamy finish

Raspberry Beer – This one stole the show for most, bursting with flavour and aroma.  It surprised a few with it’s long dry finish, as most were expecting something sweet, but one thing everyone agreed on was that it was pretty exceptional!

Make sure you put it in your diary for next year, a fabulous day out for all the family, and even better for you foodies.

Hope to see you there!
