Fans of European brewing know that the Belgians do things a little differently to other regions, which is all right by me! Aussies have been enjoying Belgian beer syles for years in Australia; I am sure that you have all at least tried a Duvel, a LA Trappe, a Chimay, or if you are really lucky, a Cantillon.
But have you tried a Belgian beer, brewed with all Aussie ingredients, brewed by actual Belgians? You know, people who grew up in the lavish Belgian beer culture? Well, I know of a couple that for some reason, wanted so badly to share their love of Belgian beers with Aussies that they flew thousands of miles to this big brown land to do it!
In this episode, one of those people tells me why she felt it necessary to make that trip with her co-founder, Jimmy Van Eetvelde. This is the story of Madocke Brewing with co-founder Annelies Nijskens
Huge shout out to Brad from Rallings labels for introducing Annelies & I.
