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 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 Huyghs challenging brewery.
