The Belgian Brewer wowed the judges on its way to winning four prestigious medals at the European Beer Challenge.

The craft brewery and taproom, which is based at the Links Business Centre in Bishop's Stortford, clinched double-gold medals for its Strong Blond and its Tripel.

Strong Blond was the only double-gold medal winner in the Belgian Blond Ale category, which was dominated by breweries from Belgium, while Tripel beat famous breweries such as Affligem, Brasserie de l'Abbaye du Val-Dieu and Brasserie Caulier (Paix Dieu).

And the brewery, which was founded by Belgian national Nik Lemmens and opened in Stortford in 2019, also struck gold with its Dubbel and Raspberry beers.

"European Beer Challenge Medals are extremely valuable to us as they recognise the absolute top tier of beer producers in the world," said Lemmens.

"We use traditional brewing methods, equipment that brewhouses in Belgium use and import our specialist additions, such as sugars and yeasts, from Belgium.

"I strive for the highest possible quality and will not compromise on authentic flavours."
