The centre of both the world of chocolate and the world of beer.
Coincidence? We think not.
The goal when creating a tasting evening of beer and chocolates that the mutual flavor intensity should always be ending in equilibrium. Putting a solid dark chocolate, 70% for example, together with a special light beer would erase the taste of the beer almost entirely. Conversely, if you have a sweet white chocolate in front of a complex beer, there is not so much left to enjoy in the chocolate. There should always be a good balance, so that the flavours of both the beer and the chocolate are in beautiful harmony.
Years of experience in the art of both beer and chocolate production enable the creation of unique tasting events, the memories of which last long after the flavours have faded.

Werner Callebaut from Bierolade
In addition to organizing beer and chocolate tasting events for a wide variety of organizations, groups and individuals, Werner keeps up with current developments in the field by attending a number of conferences, lectures and events around the world, such as the the IMEX fair in Frankfurt, IBTM World in Barcelona and the Beer- and Whiskey fair in Göteborg for Tourism Flanders. He conveys his knowledge to a wider audience by penning articles for trade publications and giving interviews and lectures.
But of course his real passion lies in developing interesting, enlightening, and pleasurable tasting events, for all manner of groups and organizations, facilitating a perfect introduction to the country through two of its greatest products.
It is a blond beer of 6.5% ABV and uses the exclusive US ‘Palisade’ hops from the Yakima Valley in Washington State. This hop has as its main feature a unique aroma of red fruits. Ambras is produced from the special way the yeasts, at relatively low temperature, are always ‘stressed’ to release as much esthers as possible. Ambras is a thirst quencher, has a subtle hoppiness and a pleasant maltiness with a fruity aftertaste.
For Flemings, the word “Ambras’ means quarrel. The English word “embarass” comes from the French word, which means difficulty or discomfort. Thus a Dutch speaker using the word “Ambras” as “Ambrasse ‘, which is interpreted by a Francophone as “embrasse” or “embrace”, while in English the word means the opposite of what the French understand. With this name we want to show in a humourous way that Flemings and Walloons sometimes interpret things differently, but we all as Belgians, independent of any political debate, prove to live together in harmony. At least, we prove this in Noduwez, where we all make and drink beer together.
