Texel is known for having the most hours of sunshine in the Netherlands. Wheat and barley, two important ingredients for making beer, grow into thick grains as a result. Texel sheep also benefit from the beer brewed on Texel. The sheep are treated with 'bostel', the residual product of the malt that remains after brewing.
