Having heard that Waterloo beer restored energy and valour in those who drank it, the Duke of Wellington allowed his men to drink it to boost their strength and courage on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo. With the English victory on 18 June 1815, the legend of Waterloo was born.
Waterloo today is among John Martin’s prestigious Finest Beer Selection, along with the likes of Guinness, Gordon and Timmermans.
A micro-brewery has been opened at Mont-Saint-Jean Farm, which was where the Duke of Wellington set up the English hospital during the battle in 1815.

Waterloo Triple Blonde
The triple blond is both simple and complex with alternating bitter hops and the flexibility of its malt, gives this Waterloo beer the taste of victory.
Waterloo Strong Dark
A coffee nose is combined with a tone of roots, but with a strong, disciplined character. Its flavour develops gradually, reminiscent, if you will, of the ardor of the soldiers of the Battle of Waterloo.
This is a genuine local product, the raw materials of which come from the fertile soil of the plains of Waterloo. The beer captivates the taste buds, via its forefront of malts and wheat followed by its bitter back taste. Once conquered, expect setbacks, however, because it is very charming but also cunning: ‘Bravery!’
