"Beware of the beer!!! DE LEYERTH-URTHEL" Belgium Tourist Trap Tip by irisbe

  Urthel beer
by irisbe

Belgium beer is so good you might want to drink more then you can take!
Don't drink that much that you mistake the bearded creature being the barman... This one doesn't take any orders!

I must admit that I still have to try my first Urthel beer.
I saw the tap on one of the beer festivals in Antwerp and it looked so great I could not resist taking a picture of it.
The Brewery has several beers on sale:
A Bock beer, a strong dark ale; a triple like beer called Urthel Hibernus Quentum; and a few more.
When I will have tried one I sure will add it on my page.
Unfortunately the homepage of the Brewery didn’t work.
I hope this is not an omen?

Contact of the brewery:

Brouwerij De Leyerth / Urthel

Krommekeerstraat 21
Ruiselede, 8755
phone: +32 (0)51 68 89 99
Official website.

Unique Suggestions: Drink slowly, enjoy the taste....
and never leave a glass empty nor full!
That is what my late uncle said when he died with a smile on his face and his glass in his hands!

Have a look at the website of Urthel and find all the varieties they have.

Fun Alternatives: Drink water and regret afterwards you didn't tasted the beer

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
