Delirium Tremens


Psychedelic Week

Delirium Tremens

From the moment you set your eyes on the label you know that something strange is going on. Pink elephants and dancing alligators adorn a blue background with what could be a Chinese dragon, but it’s hard to tell. Even the bottle is not what it seams, wrapped in plastic, designed to look like ceramic.

Now for the name, according to the National Institutes of Health: Delirium Tremens (DT): A serious alcohol-withdrawal syndrome observed in persons who stop drinking alcohol following continuous and heavy consumption. It involves profound confusion, hallucinations, and severe nervous system over activity, typically beginning between 48 and 96 hours after the last drink.

This gives you a little insight into the minds of the Huyghe family brewers; demented and ready to take you with them. Beyond all the bizarre imagery, its what is inside the bottle that really counts. Delirium Tremens received a Gold Medal in 1998 from the Beverage Testing Institute staking it’s claim as one of the best beers in the world. The Delirium label produces many good beers, go to your local beer store and explore.
