BEER SOMMELIERS, PAID TO DRINK

A passion for beer that culminated in a professional brewery

Our story started in 2016 when we, a group of kindred souls, decided that we wanted to join forces and promote craft beers. Thanks to our enthusiasm, guts and perseverance, we were able to make our dream come true,
founding a leading group brewery where you and your beers will really feel at home.

A few years later, he established BeerSelect.

Our history

1

BeerSelect established in 2016
Launch of BeerSelect at the annual trade show in Gent. We went to market as an online distributor for craft beer.

2

Meetings with hundreds of brewers
Thanks to our distribution network, we were introduced to brewers and beer companies, learning more about their needs in the process. Many of them often lacked a qualitative production partner who could guarantee the necessary capacity.

3

Largest brewery in Ghent
We are a centrally-located brewery, which prides itself on outstanding quality, brewing beers for local brewers and international beer companies.

4

Major expansion of the brewery and possibilities
Following our brewery’s tremendous success during the initial years after start-up, we decided to expand. Our aim is to give even more brewers the opportunity to take their beers to the next level.
