About Us.

The Belgian Life team – based in Lytham St Annes, UK – is passionate about sharing the products, social pleasures and traditions of Belgium.

This story doesn’t start with our first range of quality products from Belgium – delicious bottled beers. It goes back to the First World War.  That’s when Paula Everaert was evacuated to the Fylde Coast, because the area was considered similar to her home area of Ostend, Belgium.

Paula settle on the Fylde coast, when her brothers and sisters returned to the continent, and married a local man.

Three Generations.

Fast forward three generations, and her granddaughter – The Belgian Life co-founder Alex Cosgrove – still lives on the Fylde, and is proud of her Belgian heritage.

Along with partner Mark, Alex travels extensively in Belgium to see first-hand the time-honoured techniques that have made the country’s breweries and alcohol-producing monasteries the envy of the world.

Mark and Alex also still immerse themselves in the wonderful culture of Belgium, where people, food and good beer come together for the best of times.

Starting with quality bottle beers, the dedicated duo aim to bring a taste of Belgium to homes throughout the UK.
