Wherever there is hop, there are also breweries. Beers from this region have already been voted the best in the world. Some say this is equally true of the design that is created between those hop fields... What happens when you bring these two together?
Then you get a "designer beer”, called Tremist. Originally, this Extremis house beer mainly had the function of being able to pamper trade visitors with a fresh drinkable beer with the same (stubborn) character as the other creations. It is a hoppy blonde ‘Saison’ type of beer, as the farmers used to brew in the winter to cool their seasonal workers in the summer. The hop comes from Dirk Wynants ’own hop field next to his home. But since 2010, the brewing happened in collaboration with experts from the St. Bernardus brewery in Watou. They ensure that Tremist is available worldwide to be able to use it during the many Extremis events. While sister brewery De Kazematten is responsible for the effective brewing of the Tremist. De Kazematten is located in the old fortress of Ypres, yes, literally "in." This historic site is certainly worth a visit!
