Poperings Hommel

Poperings Hommel ale is brewed with a blend of summer, winter and aromatic pale malts. The brewery has its own well where soft water is found, and only local grown hops from the Gold and Hallertau family are used. ">Specialty Ale: This beer is a one of a kind ale, that you can best classify with the other Strong Golden Ales from Belgium.

What makes it special is of course the yeast, and what makes it unique is the higher amounts of hops used. This beer has about twice the bitterness of other Belgian beers. We can not expect less, since this beer has been brewed for centuries in the heart of the Belgian hops region: Poperinge. Indeed, the small village of Watou is today part of the city of Poperinge.

"Hommel" is the local word to identify hops, and it may come from the Latin word "humulus", used to identify hops. Some people in Poperinge believe it is the other way around: the local word was the source for the monks-scientist, many centuries ago, to create the word "humulus".
