Product description

Lambic is a distinctive type of beer, brewed only in certain regions of Belgium. Unlike conventional beers, lambic beer is produced by spontaneous fermentation - it is exposed to wild yeasts, as opposed to the usual carefully cultivated strains of brewer's yeasts. The result is a beer with a highly distinctive flavour. The first part of a prestigious series dedicated to Belgian beers, this book richly illustrates the story of the most famous breweries and beers, discussing their origins, quality labels, the development of the different breweries and the production processes of the beers.
