Organic Belgian brews launched in UK

31 October, 2008

A Belgian brewery has been certified organic by the UK Soil Association, in what it says is a first for the country's brews.

Daas beers are brewed in Hainaut, one of Belgium's provinces known for its beers, and are all bottle-conditioned.

Daas Organic Blond , a 6.5% abv brew that makes a good aperitif according to its brewers, has just been launched to UK retailers, bars and restaurants. Daas Organic Witte, a naturally cloudy wheat beer , will be released in mid-November.

A spokeswoman for Daas UK said: "Daas beers are hand-crafted and produced in small quantities, due

to the limited availability of organic ingredients . We believe that using hops and barley grown without pesticides makes our beers

more appetising."

Daas beers are distributed by

a UK subsidiary of the brewer.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
