The Merchant du Vin has been introducing Blanche de Namur witbier – voted “Top Belgian Witbier in Europe” at the 2012 World Beer Awards – to a lot of great stores, bars, and restaurants recently.  This beautiful Belgian witbier, from the family-owned Du Bocq Brewery Brewery established in 1858, is getting a lot of appreciative nods.
