And also this year brewery Huyghe scored well: in the category Pale & Amber Ale – (Belgian Style) Tripel la Guillotine won a silver medal. Which means one step up versus last year, when the brewery won a bronze medal. And this brings the total medals won this year at 14, an astonishing record.
Brewery Huyghe continues to win medals: this year already 14, which is an all-time record. Just like last year, La Guillotine – a gold blonde multigrain beer of 8.5% ABV – was the beer that scored at the Brussels Beer Challenge. Last year that same beer won a bronze medal, this year they managed to win the silver medal in the category Pale & Amber Ale – (Belgian Style) Tripel. And who knows, next year the brewery might win the gold medal. One thing is certain, Alain De Laet – CEO of the brewery – is an ambitious man: “For years we have worked hard to become the greenest brewer of the country and I dare to say that we are close to having reached that goal. But we have more goals: continue to evolve and grow, both on existing and new markets. In that respect we are very delighted we have just signed an import contract in India, which we consider a high-potential market. It will also help us to close the gap towards the 200,000 HL, which will make us the 7 th largest brewer of the country. Not bad for a 'small' family-owned business," adds De Laet proudly.
And in the meantime the 5 th generation is already knocking on the door: sun Alexandre De Laet is equally passionate about beer. It looks like the future of the family brewery is safe.To overview
