Delirium is hard to miss. All you have to do is follow the pink elephant. If that all sounds a bit Alice in Wonderland, then you'll be pleased to know the beers are as wild and wonderful as their idiosyncratic image implies.
It all started in 1906, when LÃÂ©on Huyghe settled in Melle, Belgium. Four years later, he acquired a local brewery with several centuries pedigree, and history was made. Whilst a standard pilsner remained the brewerys mainstay, a line of more divergent creations hit the scene from the 1980s, each sporting a fetching pink elephant.
The first, Delirium Tremens, has achieved fame and fortune via a stint as the Best Beer in the World in 2008. Stablemates like Delirium Nocturnum and Red have been joined by a celebrated Christmas ale, each reaping a haul of awards worldwide for LÃÂ©on Huyghs challenging brewery.
