I was lucky enough to have a chance to meet Pierre Celis recently. Pierre is a world renowned brewer most famous for creating the Hoegaarden Brewery in Belgium in 1966. He dusted off some nearly forgotten white beer recipes and created a masterpiece that can be found in all corners of the world today. More recently, he started the Celis Brewery in Austin (since purchased and relocated) as the first Belgian brewer to start a brewery in the US. Meeting him was quite an honor. I brought a Hoegaarden glass (which he designed) for him to sign. Much respect to Pierre Celis – a craft brewer with a love for Austin!
