Random Quote: De Struise
I met with Carlo Grootaert of De Struise Brouwers when I was in Belgium last year, and I just came across this quote, which you might regard as fantastic or horrible, depending on your proclivity.
“We learned a lot from American brewers. We are traditional Belgian brewers, but we’re open minded, so we look beyond the Belgian borders. Due to the fact that we are very much in contact with beer geeks—people bring us beers, you can see plenty of bottles of Dark Lord and Pliny the Elder--and we’re always interested in discovering flavors. So we actually learned from the beers we got.”
