List Rules Vote for the best ales and lagers from Belgium

List of the best beers from Belgium includes some of the greatest Belgian beers from the country. Belgium boasts in excess of 170 breweries and produces beer varieties from pale lagers to lambics to Flemish reds. The Belgian style of brewing beer has been copied by international breweries from the US to Australia, and there is no shortage of quality found in the top Belgian brews.

List of the greatest beers from Belgium includes all ales and lagers and showcases some of the processes that make Belgian beer great. From the Trappist beers brewed in monasteries under the guidance of a monk to the Abbey beers which are similar to the Trapist style without being brewed in a Trappist monastery. One thing is common of the vast majority of Belgian beer: it's delicious.

What are the greatest beers from Belgium? What is the difference between Trappist and Abbey beers? What Belgian brewery produces the best beers in Belgium?
