Meaning and history

Hoegaarden Logo

The Hoegaarden logo is a gothic-style typeface with an icon on top of it. The color scheme is traditional for many beer brands – blue, white and gold.

The Hoegaarden emblem consists of two elements –  a mash paddle and a bishop’s crozier. The first is a tribute to all the brewers of Hoegaarden (there used to be more than 50 in this small town). The second is a symbol of power once wielded by the prince bishop of Liège.

Hoegaarden has a very special mascot: an orphan brewmaster. There is a legend about an abandoned orphan raised by monks and schooled in the art of brewing, he even “buried in a beer barrel at the age of 100.”

aOne more brand’s specialty – a famous Hoegaarden beer glass. The glass has become a brand signature and although more brands have their own glasses, Hoegaarden’s does look unique and standout, with it’s huge size.
