Table beer (tafelbier, bière de table) is a low-alcohol (typically not over 2.5%) brew sold in large bottles to be enjoyed with meals. In the last decade it has gradually lost popularity due to the growing consumption of soft drinks and bottled water. It comes in blonde or brown versions. Table beer used to be served in school refectories until the 1970s; in the early 21st century, several organizations made proposals to reinstate this custom as the table beer is considered more healthy than soft drinks. Some bars serve a glass of draft lager with a small amount of table beer added, to take away the fizziness and act as a sweetener, in Limburg it is referred to as a "half om".

5 lbs of Rhar 2-Row Malt or
