Meet Van Bulck Beers
Van Bulck Belgian organic craft beers were created in 2013 by Denis Renty, ex-chef and sommelier with more than 20 years of experience in the food and drink industry.
The name ‘Van Bulck’, is in reference to his mother’s maiden name.
His mother, who is also a renowned chef, was born and raised in a small town called Watou in Flanders, which is known across the globe for growing some of the best hops. As a child she grew up and played in her uncle’s family brewery where her passion for craft beer was born. Today she still runs the family hotel/restaurant where she only works with organic products.

° Van Bulck Organic Gluten Free lager
On the palate: As this is a light and very clean, clear beer with a touch of hoppy aftertaste.It is ideal to drink with shellfish such as oysters, clams, crab, mussels etc.
It’s also a great beer to just enjoy with friends on a sunny afternoon!
Drinking experience: A fresh and light first impression where you can taste the barley and hops with a light honey
and walnut aftertaste.
Ingredients: Water, Barley malt, Kent golding hops, Styrian Goldin hops, Northern Brewer Hops, Yeast
4.5%Alcohol (1.5 units)
° Van Bulck Organic Blonde beer
In the nose: there is a very pronounced fresh smell of green fruits such as Granny Schmidt apples along with
hints of liquorice sweets and dried apricots.
Drinking experience: A bittersweet balance with an aftertaste delivered by the spelt and wheat. It is very smooth which is ideally to drink with white meat and grilled fish served with light Mediterranean sauce.
Also ideal with refreshing desserts such as lemon cake or
panna cotta with an apricot coulis.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, Kent Golding hops, Hallertau hops, Orange zest, coriander, sugar, yeast.
4.6% Alcohol (1.5 units)
° Van Bulck Organic Wild Fruit beer
In the nose: An explosion of red fruits which takes you back to the old days of grandmother’s fresh fruit marmelade.
Drinking experience: Although there is a very fruity taste of strawberries, raspberries and cherries,this beer is not as sweet as you’d imagine.
A perfect accompaniment to game such as venison.
The beer would also work great with any red fruit based desserts as well as standing up to
blue cheeses and some heavier French cheeses.
Made from seven different fruits: Cherries, pomegranate, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, grapefruit, blackberries
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, Hallertau hop, fruits, yeast, juices
4.7% Alcohol (1.6 units)
