NEW BELGIAN SMAAK PODCAST

Our guests for the second episode of the Belgian Smaak Podcast are Rob Tod (Founder) and Jason Perkins (Brewmaster) of Allagash Brewing Company.

Rob and Jason talk about what has inspired them about Belgium's beer culture and how the country has shaped their own personal story as an American brewery.

Special thanks to Leander Meuris (audio), Sophie Callewaert of Zebra Tales (photography), Ottelien Muller and all the staff at Huize Colette, Mike Kearney and Dave Wallace (music) and the guys at Visit Flanders.

Nino Bacelle met Guido Devos and they started Brouwerij De Ranke in 1996. Guido ran a beer tasting club at the time and together, they decided to brew a test batch of beer that used a lot of hops. “That was the first test for XX Bitter,” says Nino. “We put it on a festival in Kortrijk for the first time in 1996 and a lot of the brewers there told us we wouldn’t be able to sell it because it was too bitter.”
