Brewery Slaapmutske : Top-of-the-line craft beers made with the finest ingredients

Brewery Slaapmutske has been recreating Belgian beer tradition since 1999 by constantly reinventing classic Belgian style beers. All Slaapmutske beers are top-of-the-line craft beers made with the finest ingredients sourced from trusted partners and brewed with passion and attention. Slaapmutske is a trailblazer in the traditional Belgian beer scene, integrating the latest techniques and brew technological breakthroughs with a passion for beer and a commitment to the ‘art of brewing.’ A magnificent example is the gold medal-winning Slaapmutske Blond, which was the first Belgian beer to use American Cascade hops for dry-hopping 20 years ago. As we all know, this foresight led to widespread use of comparable hops by other breweries in Belgium many years later. Slaapmutske chooses to produce this type of beer independently and using specialised yeasts, rather than dealcoholizing an existing beer to lower alcohol, for Sunny Moon. Sunny Moon is also dry-hopped with Aromatic New Zealand hops, giving the beer a startling fresh and fruity aroma.

Slaapmutske beers currently include typical Belgian blond, brown, and triple beers, as well as session white, old brown sour, sour kriek, organic triple, and various gluten-free and even sugar-free craftbeers. This places Slaapmutske at the forefront of brewing innovation and skill, and this… in the heart of Belgium’s brewing nation.
