Unique craft beer from Vilvoorde brewed with water, barley malt, hops, yeast and meadowsweet, a bittersweet herb that grows by the banks of the ‘Zenne’, the river floating through Vilvoorde.
Inhabitants of Vilvoorde are well-known as ‘Pjeirefretters’ (horse eaters). This name was given to them a few decades ago when horses still pulled the boats on the canal from and to Brussels. The retired horses were gathered on a grassland in Vilvoorde before they were sold as meat to the local people of Vilvoorde. Show Less
