At the 2014 World Beer Awards, Tongerlo Blond was named the World’s Best Beer across all beer categories. The jury was unanimous:
the brewing of a simple beer shows forth the talent of the master brewer. It was the first time this title was awarded to a Belgian beer. A fine reward for the daily devotion to brewing this authentic abbey beer.
The abbey’s coat of arms together with the Latin saying ‘veritas vincit’ or ‘the truth triumphs’ adorns the packaging. Lux, Latin for light, in turn refers to the reflexion of light in the warm copper colour of the beer.
