Behind the Scenes with St. Stefanus

  • 0

This month we are excited to give you a behind the scenes look at the recent filming we undertook in Paris, Ghent and London. To film our Journey of Discovery into the Speciality Beer Scene, Jef, our Master Brewer at the Van Steenberge Brewery, chatted with beer bloggers, chefs and pub owners to find out more about everything from cooking with beer to what it’s like to own a craft beer bar. Here’s an exclusive look at what we got up to! Ghent The St. Stefanus team travelled to the Ghent Festival, or Gentse Feeste, in July. The festival dates back to 1843, and is an incredible way to find out more about the history and traditions of this beautiful city. Here is a photo of the parade, with people in traditional dress in the foreground against a backdrop of typical Belgian architecture.

People can enjoy world music, street theatre, puppetry, comedy, food, and of course, beer tents offering the best in Belgian lagers and ales. The Van Steenberge Brewery, where our beer is brewed, also has a tent at the festival.

One of these pubs is Le Bouillon Belge, where we spent a day discovering what it’s like to own a speciality beer pub. Jef can be seen below demonstrating how to pour St. Stefanus on draught.
