For centuries the Poperinge area has produced the quality hops required for Belgium’s beer industry. During WWI, Poperinge was just out of German artillery range so it became a posting and R&R station for Allied soldiers heading to or from the Ypres Salient. English troops, remembering it for its entertainments and prostitutes, referred to the town fondly as ‘Pops’.
