Perhaps they had too much time on their hands. Or they were sick of the sacramental wine. Maybe
it was divine inspiration? We’ll never know for sure. What we do know is that the Hoegaarden monks
were the first to discover the unique recipe for wheat beer around 1445. Today, 9 out of 10 wheat
beers sold in Belgium are from Hoegaarden. Meanwhile, the unique flavour is being appreciated and
awarded throughout Europe, North America, Australia, Singapore and China.
