Two common varieties of wheat beer are witbier (Dutch - "white beer") based on the Belgian tradition of using flavorings such as coriander and orange peel which was revived by Pierre Celis at Hoegaarden,and weissbier (German - "white beer") based on the German tradition of mixing at least 50% wheat to barley malt to make a light coloured top-fermenting beer.

Dear valued customers

Dear Art of Brewing Customers,

We regret to inform you that our store is currently closed until further notice due to a recent fire incident. On February 25, the Nelson Fire Department quickly took control of the fire that was discovered in the early morning, and fortunately, nobody was hurt

We are deeply saddened by this unfortunate event and witnessing our store and life's work go up in smoke has been devastating for us. At present, we are beginning the insurance process and assessing the damage.

We understand that customers who have orders with us currently on site are concerned. Please know that we have not forgotten about you, but it will take some time to sort things out. We will contact you as soon as we have more information.

We are grateful for the heartwarming support we have received from the community, customers, friends, and family, which is keeping us on our feet at this difficult time. However, we are currently overwhelmed with communications, and it may not be possible to respond to all individual messages.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Regards, Breg & Maarten
