They are on the menu of many restaurants in Ostend: our famous grey shrimp croquettes. The Ostend shrimp croquette is officially recognized as Flemish local gastronomy. It is the most traditional croquette, made with shrimps caught by Ostend fishermen, cooked on board the fishing boat itself, and then peeled by hand. The traditional recipe calls for the croquettes to contain at least 30% shrimp. They must also be prepared within a radius of 10km around Ostend.
Nothing tastes better with your freshly fried real Ostend shrimp croquettes than a typical locally brewed beer. The Ostend city brewery 't Koelschip, together with top chef Kobe Desramaults, developed a genuine Ostend beer that tastes heavenly with shrimp croquettes. KREVET is a wheat beer based on local herbs and fresh citrus notes. KREVET is traditionally brewed with natural ingredients, without added flavourings or colourings. With an alcohol percentage of 5%, KREVET is the ideal thirst quencher for gourmet bon vivants.
