The Hoegaarden monks were the first to discover the unique wheat beer recipe in 1445. Historical sources know that the first wheat beer was incredibly sour - until the time when the monks of Hoegaarden began experimenting with orange peel and coriander. This divine discovery makes today's beer one of the world's most famous Hoegaarden recipes.

In 1709 the village had 12 breweries and the number tripled in 17 years. Of the 36 breweries at the time, the last one in Hoegaarden closed in 1957. The residents decided to keep the original recipe and in 1965 the milkman Pierre Celis took the bull by the horns and started brewing.

As he was about to start exporting to the United States, a big fire destroyed his dream and with it the beer.

Of course, there are also secrets and legends in this case: It is said that with some of them you had to use a huge wrench to get the hexagonal glasses from Hoegaarden out of the hands of the guests because they were unwilling to leave. It is also said that people with a vitamin deficit in the 17th / 18th Century treated with wheat beer.
