Belgium makes over 1500 different beers and has more than 160 breweries. The beer’s history stretches back centuries to medieval monks and has been celebrated in paintings by Pieter Brueghel the Elder.

A few Belgian beers are Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and Leffe and the Trappist beers (Chimay, Rochefort, Westmalle, etc.) Beer is also used widely by cooking and producing products like beer-washed cheese.

UNESCO has listed Belgium's beer culture among the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2016.
