De Molen hold an annual beer festival in September (Borefts) inviting some of the most innovative small brewers in Europe to attend. Menno, brewmaster and festival organiser for De Molen, shared the recipe for his celebrated Vuur & Vlam with the attending breweries and challenged them to brew their version of the beer.

We've got three of the versions in stock: Fyr & Flamme from Haandbryggereit (Norway), Ignis & Flamma from De Stuise Brouwers (Belgium) and Vuur & Vlam from De Molen (Netherlands). For the De Molen version expect aromas of tropical fruit (especially mango and passionfruit), resin bitterness and toffee body from the malt - we'll leave it to you to see how the 'challengers' compare!
