Wallonia is one of the regions of the world which has the widest variety of beers, such as pils, white beer, Abbey beer, Trappist beer, etc.

Trappist beers

There are only seven Trappist beers in the world, six of which are produced in Belgium, including three in Wallonia: Orval, Chimay and Rochefort.

The secrets of these famous beers are to be found in the heart of the abbeys, which are well worth a detour and, in some cases, you can visit. There’s always an inn or a bistro nearby where you’ll be served the local beer as it’s meant to be served.

Artisanal brewing

The incredibly fast development of artisan brewers since the 1990s has given rise to a multitude of new beers and flavours.
Come and taste raspberry beer, seasonal beer, white beer or organic beer, to name just a few.

Abbey beers

Abbey beers, with their evocative names, owe their designations to existing or defunct abbeys. They still bear the names of those abbeys, such as Leffe, Maredsous, Val-Dieu and Floreffe, although they are not necessarily brewed there. These names might inspire you to take a trip to their place of origin, or you might just want to sit back and relax while you drink them.
