Belgian Brewery Haacht wins big at the World Beer Awards 2022

Haacht Brewery has landed Gold in this year’s World Beer Awards for the World’s Best Pale Belgian Style Triple category with its Tongerlo Tripel.

This Belgian tripel stands out thanks to the scale of fruity notes which accentuates the bitterness of the hops. It previously won Europe’s Best at the World Beer Awards back in 2011.

Haacht’s Tongerlo ales are authentic Belgian abbey ales. For centuries the Norbertine Canons of Tongerlo have dedicated themselves to brewing beer. Using contemporary technology and just as much passion, Haacht Brewery has made sure that, since 1990, this centuries-old tradition lives on.

Matthew Langley, UK Country Director at Haacht comments:

“Previous years have seen the Tongerlo Tripel win Silver in 2020, and Gold in 2013 at the Brussels Beer Challenge. To win a gold medal again at this year’s World Beer Awards is an incredible achievement that recognises the commitment to quality of the brewery team at Haacht in Belgium.”
