Additional information:

This Hoegaarden beer is well-known all over the world, but it has had quite a bumpy history. The town of Hoegaarden has been famous for its white beers for several centuries. At some moment in history, the town counted no less than nine breweries who all brew their own version of this white beer. But that tradition came in danger when one brewery after the other stopped their activities. In 1957, when the last brewery was about to close, one man, Pierre Celis, came into action.

He bought the brewery and turned a small struggling brewery into a very successful company with customers all over the world. In 1985, he was more or less forced to sell his brewery to beer giants Interbrew and he moved to the USA where he started a new brewery, Celis White.

The Hoegaarden beer is still in the hands of Interbrew (although now called AB Inbev) and it is still popular as ever. Nowadays there are also a lot a fruit flavored versions on the market. That trend started emerging some ten years ago and Hoegaarden was quick to follow it. Hoegaarden Rosee was the first of this kind, it is a white beer with some added raspberry juice.

All beers are shipped in professional, DHL-approved, triple-walled cardboard boxes, where all bottles are separated from each other to prevent them from hitting against each other during transport
First of all, you should bear in mind that during transport the bottles might have been thrown around quite a bit and that it’s not a good idea to drink them immediately. We advise you to let the bottles rest in an upright position in a dark and cool place for at least 48 hours. This will allow the yeast to sink to the bottom of the bottle again, and it will also prevent an outburst of foam when you open them. Beers are best kept in an upright position (to make sure the yeast residue remains at the bottom) and in a dark and cool a cool place. (The ideal temperature is 10-12°C (50-55°F) and it is also important the temperature remains as stable as possible.) It is best to drink all beers before the expiry date mentioned on the bottle.  Some brewers, however, mention the bottling date rather than the expiry date on their bottles.
