ESTAMINET
In the 16th century the Catholic Spanish army marched into the Low Countries (Belgium,
the Netherlands, Luxembourg and certain parts of Northern France) to do battle against
advancing Protestantism. The Spanish soldiers, led by Alva, had a keen eye for inns of-
fering a pleasant stay, with delicious drinks, tasty meals and a friendly atmosphere. The
lively serving wenches were an added attraction. That’s why “esta minetta” (“there are
girls”) became a code name for the preferred inns.
ESTAMINET is now the name of PALM Breweries’ best “premium pils”.
ESTAMINET owes its premium quality to the selection of the best natural ingredients:
soft water, 100% high-quality summer barley, a distinctive yeast and very precious Saaz
hops. High density, slow and traditional bottom fermentation to provide a fruity character
and maturation for 6 full weeks make ESTAMINET a true Belgian premium pils.
