The Canary Islands are famous because of their sunny beaches, night life, excursions, hiking and much more. The Canary Islands are blessed with a pleasant temperature all year round, that’s actually the mean factor to visit it. Two friends of mine did visit the Island Lanzarote and did bring two local beers for me. There are actually three “big” breweries and a few smaller breweries. The main marks are Tropical, Dorada and Reina.
I visited the Bavaria Brewery in Lieshout, The Netherlands. Bavaria is the second largest brewery in the Netherlands after Heineken. The annual production is around six million hectolitres of beer. The best-known global product is Bavaria Premium Pils lager.
The La Trappe brewery in Berkel-Enchot, The Netherlands. In 1884 the monks decided to begin brewing Trappist beers. Monks should earn their own living, this is possible by selling trappist beers. You can get a very interesting tour in the brewery and courtyard. They also produce cheese from their own cheese factory, honey from their own apiary and homemade biscuits, chocolate and bread.
A few days ago I did visit the brewery hostel in Achel, Belgium. Achel is one of the eleven Trappist breweries in the world. Many hikers and cyclists take a small break to drink a Trappist beer, that’s also why they brew a blonde and a brown beer of 5% (ABV) instead of the normal 8% (ABV). Achel Trappist beer is brewed in two variants: Achel brown and Achel blonde.
The Hertog Jan brewery in Arcen, The Netherlands.
The Köningsbacher brewery in Koblenz, Germany.
