You may not know this classic yet, but when you do, you will most certainly become an instant fan. This golden yellow, creamy cheese in its natural white crust is internationally celebrated. The love for the craft of cheese making is clear from the soft texture and full flavour. It is ideal as a snack or with an aperitif. Passchendaele cheese has various derivatives, such as Père Joseph and Wijnendaele.
This amber coloured beer, with an alcohol percentage of 5.5%, is brewed with various malt varieties, making many a Passchendaele resident’s mouth water. This beer is currently only available at the Old Cheese Factory in Passchendaele.
This tangy, blonde thirst quencher of 6.5% was developed for the Witch Parade in Beselare and it is brewed according to an old recipe. Allow yourself to be bewitched! If you prefer something a little sweeter then try a Witches’ Cocktail.
"When opening a bottle of Passchendaele, please hold a minute of silence to commemorate those who fell on the battlefield." The commemorations of the Battle of Passchendaele are kept alive with Passchendaele, The Great Beer. This half litre, at 5.2%, refers to the British standard measure, the 'pint', while the style of the label and packaging evoke the spirit of the times of the First World War. Taste the tangy aftertaste thanks to a blend of Belgian hop, brewed in the front region itself.
A typical one-pan dish from the First World War with corned beef, potatoes and vegetables. This soldiers’ fare is served in a mess tin during the Platoon Experience. Highly recommended! If you are not adventurous enough for the ‘Experience’, you can find the dish on various menus in a number of Zonnebeke eateries. Request the list from the Tourist Office.
