Michel Moortgat visits The Belgian Bar in Xian

On 7 April 2013, M. Michel Moortgat the CEO of Duvel-Moortgat brewery visited The Belgian Bar in Xi’an.

Mr Moortgat is a highly respected Belgian business man who recently won the 2014 Vlerick Award and so it was a great honour to be able to spend an evening with him.

He shared with us the history and future development plans of his company and in turn I was able to share with him my thoughts on the Chinese beer market.

A highlight of the evening was his demonstration of how to correctly pour a Duvel during which he showed his great sense of humour saying, “I better don’t stuff this up!”

That being done we all proceeded to conduct a very thorough tasting of his popular golden ale well into the wee hours of the morning. It is no wonder then that Duvel is one of the best selling beers at The Belgian Bar in Xi’an.

World’s Best Beer – Delirium Tremens now on tap at The Belgian Bar…

You may have noticed the fantastic pink elephant light box hanging at the entrance of The Belgian Bar in Xian. Now while we have enjoyed DT from the bottle since the Belgian Bar first opened more than 4 years ago, we have never had it on tap.

Well, things have changed! The Pink Elephant (fen xiang in Chinese), has landed and is here to stay. Exclusive to The Belgian Bar of course.

Delirium Tremens was named as “Best Beer in the World” in 2008 at the World Beer Championships in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Stuart Kallen gives it the number one spot in his The 50 Greatest Beers in the World.

NightOwl has observed a number of well-informed regulars now ordering nothing but Delirium Tremens draft which only goes to show that sometimes the professional beer tasters actually are right!

At 8.5% ABV this is a beer that needs to be respected even as it is enjoyed. It has an amazing golden colour, is crystal clear with very subtle carbonation and a great taste profile.

The beer has a huge worldwide cult following and there are even Delirium Cafes in Brussels, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Warsaw. Their website is well worth a visit.

Chimay Red now on tap at The Belgian Bar in Xian!!!

In a very exciting new addition to our draft beer selection, we can now announce that Chimay Red is available on tap in Xian exclusively at The Belgian Bar.

It is fantastic that we now have this amazing Trappist red ale (7% ABV) available on tap. The beer is rich and silky with an amazing rich and creamy head, the taste is complex, easy to drink and immensely satisfying.

Served in the authentic Chimay glass of 330ml size and well priced at RMB 40, this premium beer is already enjoying great popularity amongst both Chinese and expat patrons.
