It’s not the size of the bird in the fight, but the size of the fight in the bird. And this owl’s got serious bite! A 0.2% IPA that assures a Superhero punch without the dizzy aftermath. Hair of the dog never tasted so good before. A refreshingly low-alcohol, low-calorie IPA that keeps you punting all night long. Hut hut hike!
Grandson Vol. 1
Grandpa’s gone on a Cancun booze cruise and Grandma never really gave a damn, which puts Grandson up sh*t’s creek. No fear, cuz da boy does what any bright bloke would do – flips himself a batch of French-style toast amped up with granddaddy’s sweet stout batter. A little cinnamon, a bit of vanilla – who needs old folks when you can brew beer like this?!
We pulled this light, fruity and hoppy white IPA out of our hat. Ba dum chhh! Try as you might, you can’t escape it. Ba dum chhh!! Lock it up and throw away the key so no one steals a sip. Ba dum chhh! OMG! Someone free us from these mind-bending puns before we all up in a straitjacket. Ba dum chhh!
New England IPAs are like most comic book heroes – a tad too serious, a tad too predictable. Our Deadperle stops all that. An immortal double IPA brewed with superhero strength perle hops and an anti-hero’s sense of humor. A tragically cool NEIIPA straight from our Weapon X brewery. It won’t give regenerative powers, but it’s fun to hang out with…in short doses.

I Remember My First Check-In
The Amazing Strong Owl
Oh! Buurman wat doet u nu?
If you are not from around the Netherlands you probably have no clue what to make of this title. There for we are not even going to explain you anything about it, just google it. A small hint is a busty blonde lady in a 1980’Dutch Tv show!
Oh Buurman is our American style barleywine! Stuffed with a shitload of American hops and orange peel. Full bodied, slight sweet and fruity is this beer. With it’s 11.8% it is a scary one…. A real easy drinker that will make you forget that you are alive. Trust us, when you’ll stand up you’ll know.
The Greench Stole X-Mas
This is a mean one, our Mr. Greench. A bone-dry IPA as cuddly as a Christmas tree and as charming as a snowflake sweater. It comes without ribbons, it comes without tags, but by golly this holly, jolly IPA will make you feel mighty toasty inside. True to the times, our Greench is no Scrooge. This hairy, pot-bellied, pear-shaped beer loves Xmas, loves Whoville Whos and loves all of yous! Brewed especially for those who could use a little social interaction during the holidays.
Double IPA DDH
Malt: Crisp Extra Pale Malt & Flaked Oats
Hops: Amarillo Cryo, Idaho 7 Cryo & Mosaic
This ruthless Brut of an IPA combines our favorite hop-criminal kingpins – El Chapo, El Patron, Owl Capone and Don Perignon. At 8%, it’s a tough guy beer, but there’s enough bubbles in this gangsta to keep an Italian trophy wife happy. Ping! Pow! Boom! Bing! It’s gonna be a good year! Oh, and remember, never rat on your friends.
Malt: Pilsner malt & Flaked rice
Hops: Equanot, Pahto, Talus, Sabro
Cuvée du Owl Barleywine
Back by popular demand, our infamous barleywine with enough horsepower to propel a royal carriage and enough elegance to be sipped by bitcoin billionaires and dot.com kings. Aged in oak barrels like fine wine and even finer cognac, it’s a balmy aperitif for dark winter days. Don’t let the can fool you, our cuvee is a gentleman’s beer. So be gentlemanly.
Dikke Lul 3 Bier!
1-2-3 en tot de 4. Het maakt niet uit, dikke lul drie bier! If you are not from the Netherlands please do not translate the name of this beer! (Obviously you are going to now!) However this extraordinary hoppy pale ale was named after a Dutch and even Haarlem’ saying (found out after we made the beer). Awesome hop forward and dry-ridiculously-hopped American Pale Ale. Light/medium bodied and a lot of dank hops in it. The good stuff ☺
It’s no secret that few things excite us owls more than color-coded skin-tight spandex suits. Evil witches, wizards, combat monsters – we live ‘em! So we combined our super powers and brewed this Super Sentai Double IPA. Pacifica. A giant robot of a beer that packs a hoppy punch. Our gift to you.
Malt: Best Pale Malt
Hops: Ekuanot, HBC 568, NZ Blend, Nelson Sauvin
Prepare your taste buds for delight, my friends, because this ain’t your typical Mojo juice. No no, it’s Mojo-Jo-Juice. A Powerpuff New England IPA fruitier than the animated #girlpower series we’re riffing on. A mysterious and sinister tropical IPA with a criminal amount of passion fruit and mango. If Townsville had its own microbrewery, Mojo Jojo would be its brewmaster and this hoodoo juice its most powerful power ale.
It’s a Lagær
What’s a LAGÆR? It’s Viking for lager, little heathens! This clean, crisp wild beast will have you barking at the moon. In Old Norse ‘Viking’ means ‘a pirate raid’. So consider our LAGÆR a ‘lager raid’, or at least a lager upgrade. Sipped by civilized folk in sophisticated glasses and not drink out of the skulls of your enemies. Tyr!
Malts: Pilsner & Vienna Malt
Hops: Tettnagner & Perle
Imperial Russian Stout
Dutch Bargain Imperial Russian Stout is as black as a night in Moskou. Reforming like Gorbatsjovs
pertstrojka, due to the complex malt pour strongly befriended with the English Stout. This IRS has
a mocha coloured foam head and a creamy chocolate aftertaste of cacao beans and an espresso with
cream. A Russian with a comrade of an Englishman. Who would’ve thought!
Imperial Zeeuws Blond
Re-Release of our April Signature of 2019. This time as our Spring Seasonal!
We were pretty drunk at Billies Craftbeer Festival when we decided to brew a rip-off of Lervig’s Passion Tang. A whopping 62 hours we let the lactobacillus do it’s work. And to constrain all that sour violence a little, we added milk sugar and loads of passion fruit, giving this beer some tartness as well.
Coffee Connaisseur, moi? (2019)
Re-Release of the first of the DB Signature Editions 2019. This time as our first beer of the 2019-2020 Seasonals. Same recipe, other design.
So much thicker than his little brother from the Classic line, that he’s basically a brother-in-law. Twice as much cacoa nibs, extra alcohol, you do the math. Also added are Sumatra coffee beans, burned by our friends from Bosbrand. The soft, sweet and creamy hints of chocolate and Nitro Cold Brew coffee allow this beer a delicate piece of balance between all the violence.
India Pale Ale
Tijd vervaagt als je deze Dutch Bargain India Pale Ale drinkt. Tot in de laatste slok. De IPA heeft een tropische toets die je niet zou vermoeden bij een Europese hop. Maar de Mandarina Bavaria hop bewijst: je hoeft de oceaan niet over te steken voor een vleug mandarijn. Die zorgt ervoor dat deze juicy IPA lekker doordrinkbaar is, wanneer dan ook. Je kunt hem ieder seizoen uit de ijskast pakken. Perfect voor onder de palmbomen, misschien nog wel lekkerder in een barre winter.
Dutch Bargain Seawise is a Hefeweizen. A wheatbeer fermented with the German Weihenstephan
yeast. With, no joke, ‘samphire’. Picked out of the ‘Zeeuwse zee’ (sea from our Zeeland), so you
can almost taste the Zeeuwse dune wind. With citrus from verbena and a 4,3% ABV, extremely
refreshing and thirst-quenching.
Imperial Pale Ale
Dutch Bargain Imperial Pale Ale is beautiful copper-like, with a little touch of red. The strong
bitterness and the hops and caramel have a long aftertaste on your taste buds. Every sip is an
adventure by itself. With a proud milky, yet foam head. A welcoming kick of ten percent. A winner.
At least that’s what we believe. And so did the jury of the World Beer Awards.
My Life Span Is… #3
Batch #1 of this collaborative brew between De Moersleutel, Lehe and Het Uiltje sold out quickly. People complained. Grown men cried. Politicians got involved. So we decided to brew #2 with Mosaic hops. Now, it is time to get some Idaho 7 Cryo, Citra Cryo and Sabro in the mix. Remember to drink within three months.
Ahoy! That’s A Nautical Term
Yesssss! Who doesn’t love a piece of apfelstrudel? Vanilla, whipped cream, raisins and apple all poured into this 11% Imperial doppelbock.
Ever wanted to make like Alice and enter a wonderland of your own? Well, to that we say ‘drink me’. This doppelbock is your golden ticket to a prelapsarian forest full of apples. Well… we did already pick those apples and baked it into a creamy Austrian pastry with vanilla, raisins and cinnamon. We used the best german malts and hops to get down this rabbit hole. Drink this portion and you’ll soon be consulting caterpillars, organizing mad tea parties and playing croquet with the queen. Yes, wonderland is yours for the taking. Just don’t lose your head down there.
Once Upon A Time In Japan
For the 2nd sour ale in our ‘Once Upon a Time in…’ series, we go big in Japan. But this ain’t no touristy cherry blossom beer. No Sir-san! Pumped full of yuzu and elderflower, this Berliner Weisse is as razor sharp as a katana sword. More Yakuza Owl than barn owl, if you know what we mean. Brewed democratically for non-conformist corporate types and tattooed underworld scum.
Fresh Prince of Bravo
Not just an IPA, but a retro junk IPA starring the fresh and fruity Bravo hop. At 7% it’s as rich and outrageous as a Bel-Air billionaire, but costs less than a Pontiac LeMans. Trust us when we say this world squirrel is as charismatic as the fresh prince himself . And hey, don’t hate us ‘cause we’re beautiful.
Malt: Crip Extra Pale, Flaked Barley, Flaked Oats
Hops: Ekuanot& Mosaic
All hail this super juicy New England 5.1%-er with a touch of unagi. We promise our hazy little friend will touch all seven of your erogenous zones. Ideally sipped while speaking bad French, hugging a Holiday Armadillo and riding around your house on a white dog statue with a buddy. A timeless IPA worthy of a thousand re-runs.
Piewee the Pineapple Weizen
Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot? In that case we dare you to try our award winning Pineapple Weizen. This amazing Pineapple infused weizen gives you tropical goosebumps while drinking it. The tropical flavors in combination with the strong and somewhat sour flavors make Piewee the Pineapple Weizen something you must try! Besides it’s fruitiness, its quite hazy as well, a tropical surprise indeed!
This amazingly fresh weizen beer came in second at the dutch beer awards 2019, in the category of weizen beer. The unorthodox flavors and the high quality make this something every beer-lover must have tasted at least once!
Let yourself be tropically surprised! The sweet freshness of the tropics is trapped inside our bottles and are eager to burst out! With an ABV percentage of a solid 5%, makes the Pineapple Weizen a treat in a bottle. Watch out when drinking it in hot temperatures though!
Did we set the bar high by calling her a Prima Donna? We sure did! but before you start judging her, get to know her a little better. Take her hand and walk for a little while trough the Italian landscape. Discover the italian Limoncello culture with some old belgian tradition in the mix.
This blonde is not a traditional blonde. narcissistic as she is, she demanded to be called Limoncello Blonde. But to be honest, the demanding ‘first lady’ has a point. She reeks and tastes of Lemon, but she is still classy as she should be.
At an easily drinkable 5.0% she’s not that punch in the face, if you don’t count the citrus-limoncello-whip.
Hazy Days Blurry Nights
A beachy blend of New England IPA and wheat beer. Waves of tropical fruits, pine and floral hop notes. Slightly sour with refreshing coriander and citrus flavors. Brewed with Yakima Chief Hops to support the beach cleanup charity Juttersgeluk. The Hawaiian word Makai means ‘out to the ocean’. Let’s keep them clean!
Me Myself & IPA
Ladies and Gentleman, the hunt is opened! And this target is not an easy one to catch! It’s the elusive Trackdown Juicy Pale Ale! You you thing you’ve got what it takes to track it down? It hides in the bone dry plains of Middle Africa, the treacherous Everglades Swamps, the hazardous Himalayan mountains and the perilous South American Jungle. Wherever it may hide, the owl will track it down.
he Trackdown Juicy Pale Ale is an ideal beer for the hunter of the concrete jungle. The daily predator that requires an alcoholic refreshment at week’s end. This Juicy Pale Ale is full of extraordinary flavors withdrawn from the most peculiar fruits. The bitter hops along with the fruity tones make this a beer you want to get acquainted with! Don’t hesitate and enjoy boundlessly.
*ONLY SURGEONS IN TRAINING BEHIND THIS POINT*
Welcome to the masterclass of Dr. Raptor. Some say he is totally out of control… and they are probably right. This is the playground of Dr. Raptor, and he makes up his own rules!
Q: What’s up with that scalpel?
A: It’s the favorite toy of this crazy vicious madman. But he does make one freakin’ bombastic beer.
Q: How does one drink such a beast?
A: He sips best fresh, but is no stranger to storing his crazy creating in a cool dark place.
Enjoy this 9.2% Imperial IPA the same way we enjoyed making it.
Mind Your Step! Peat Smoke Edition
For this Mind Your Step, we donned a kilt and dove knee-deep into Scottish peat. Cuz what’s good for Scotch sippers is good for connoisseurs of fine beer. For inspiration we pilgrimaged to Islay; for courage we sipped Wee Beastie. Then we ritualistically smoked the druids out of our darkest most velvety stout. By god I’ll gie ye a skelpit lug!
*Wild West lone guitar riff starts playing* No need to get the sheriff, I own this town, said El Patron whilst holstering his Cold Single Action army revolver with smoke still escaping from the barrel. Another IPA within our league of bad guys, scoundrels and villains. The El Patron is wanted throughout the entire world for its relentless bitterness and its dauntless flavors. This antihero North West Double IPA is loved, yet feared by many in the frontier of beers.
El Patron.. Every cinematic society has one. That awkward vengeful antihero whose legitimacy is never questioned thanks to his underground army of musclemen misfits wielding bump stocks and machetes. That’s right, you know him, equal parts master manipulator and momma’s boy, audacious risktaker and textbook *sshole. That’s our El Patron, a ruthless northwest double IPA that takes no prisoners and makes no apologies.The perfect poster boy for our uncompromised beer culture of excess. el patron is
supposed to be enjoyed fresh. This beer just like el patron has a short life expectancy. That’s also the downside to being El Patron.. you can never be El Patron for long.
Studio Oedipus No. 30 – Raspberry Berliner Weisse
One of our favourite Berliner Weisses revamped with a smooth souring strain.
It makes for a clean base to showcase raspberries that were handpicked in Nijmegen and pureed by ourselves. To get the full hit of the fruit, the hop and grain bill was stripped back as far as possible in a clean, crisp, raspberry packed sour beer.
Barrel Aged Selection:Blauwe Bijl Vat #2 Kveik Gist

Time for some cartoonish violence and brewtown alchemy by none other than our very own Hop Team. Chock-full of military grade California citrus, this West Coast IPA is as dry as Hannibal’s humor. Two parts Howling Mad and one part Bad Attitude, we hope our ode to oldie TV leads to some sort of revival. Because we love it when a plan comes together.

Wonderfully dry and thirst quenching.

Once Upon A Time In Florida
Think Florida, you think sun, you think Miami Vice, you think gators. You don’t think cool old folks with blue hair and big sunglasses cruising gated golf communities in convertible American-made cars. But you should. Heck, in Florida blue-do’s are more dominant the than Disney himself! So we’re dedicating our lazy blue-hued summer weisse to them, the septuagenarians, the aesthetically ambivalent. The ones who treat life like one big chill vacation.
Whiskey Honey And Apple Cider (Honey And Smoked Spirit Flavored Cider)
Barista Chocolate Quad

Tripel LeFort is a golden blonde beer of 8.8% ABV and sets itself apart through its crisp, fruity aroma and beautifully rounded full flavour. The top-fermenting yeast used for Tripel LeFort results in a beer with vanilla-clove aromas as well as a fruity taste of bananas and red apples. Pleasant hints of citrus, lime and roses make this into a balanced beer that is intriguingly complex at the same time. A beer with body… the full flavour combined with the alcohol give you a warm feeling that slowly eases away.
Only magical beings could imagine putting sunshine into a bottle of beer. In Fairyland, a few gnomes found the best drink for sunny days: CHOUFFE Soleil. This refreshing beer has delicious citrus flavours, with a touch of vanilla and peppery notes. Luminous and slightly cloudy at the same time, CHOUFFE Soleil brings the sunshine.
Passchendaele Porter is similar to the British beer style of the same name. The taste of roasted malt is clearly present as well as the subtle hints of caramel. Passchendaele Porter has a soft bitterness and a light fruitiness. A thirst-quencher with depth! This beer is brewed in memory of the victims of the Battle of Passchendaele 1917.
De Rumoerige Roodborst
Frisse, fruitige, licht hoppige American Amber. Het prijswinnende bier is robijnrood van kleur en heeft een stevige, volle schuimkraag. Verwacht een geur vol grapefruit, tropisch fruit en lichte karameltonen. Het wordt gebrouwen met vier soorten hop en vijf verschillende mouten, waardoor er meer dan genoeg is te ontdekken!
Wist je dat?
De Roodborst is een veelvoorkomende vogel in Nederland. Hij is natuurlijk bekend van het kinderliedje Roodborstje tikt tegen het raam dat stamt uit de 19e eeuw. Maar het lieve vogeltje dat hierin wordt geschetst komt niet helemaal overeen met de werkelijkheid. Het is een zeer agressief, rumoerig baasje dat tot bloedens toe vecht om zijn enorme territorium te beschermen.

Holy Moly Tripel
What if you imagine yourself in heaven for a moment.. this is a Tripel with a divine element to it.
This beer is brewed with 4 different grains, barley, spelled, rye and buckwheat. The combination of these grains creates a nice drinkable and fresh base. The use of noble hops give the beer a slight bitter aftertaste and fruity aroma. On top of this we infused the beer with holy wood to add a surprisingly delicious and very unique flavour. A flavour that you just have to experience!
FF Lekker Met Je Bek In Het Zonnetje
Ff Lekker Met Je Bek In Het Zonnetje! This Sessionable Pale Ale is a really nice beer to relax with in the warm sun. For all of you non-Dutch speaking people out there, you probably have no idea what the heck this means. It means, freely translated, Sitting with your mouth in the sun for a while.

Pronck Imperial Porter
Pronck Imperial Porter is not just a beer. It is an experience. A courageous adventure for those who are the most seasoned lovers of good beer or want to be. This unconditional, dark beer is bursting with roasted malts and has a nice helping of malted rye. The exact balance of raw cocoa, rich bourbon vanilla, fresh cardamom and spicy juniper makes the beer to a great and robust experience that you will remember for a long time.
Jopen Non IPA is the first alcohol-free beer from Jopen. Due to the use of a special yeast, hardly any sugars are converted into alcohol during the brewing process. In addition, we have added a lot of hops, making this IPA tasteful and fruity. And of course that’s what you want with an IPA. To give the beer a real Haarlem flavor, we used three different grains. In the Middle Ages, every Haarlem beer had to be brewed with barley, wheat and oats. The result: a fruity, malty and slightly bitter beer.
The name refers to non-alcoholic and to the home of Jopenbier: the Jopenkerk Haarlem.
I’ll Be Bock
It’s the year 2120, your brain has been transferred to a T1000 looking like Robert Patrick and there’s a blistering (nuclear) storm going on outside. But you don’t want to get your metal wet. So what better way to spend the afternoon than to pour yourself an ‘I’ll be bock’, lay down the rocket launcher for a moment and sink into the couch while enjoying the subtle flavours of toasted caramel and good ol’ fashioned German hops. Don’t worry, you’ll be bock.
Duchesse de Bourgogne
Duchesse de Bourgogne from Brouwerij Verhaeghe is the traditional Flemish red ale. This refreshing ale is matured in oak casks; smooth with a rich texture and interplay of passion fruit, and chocolate, and a long, dry and acidic finish. After the first and secondary fermentation, the beer goes for maturation into the oak barrels for 18 months. The final product is a blend of younger 8 months old beer with 18 months old beer. The average age of the Duchesse de Bourgogne before being bottled is 12 months.
Dit is wat wij in het zuiden chique bier noemen. Gulpener Château Neubourg heeft een edele bitterheid. Een superieur Pilsner met karakter, naar grote hoogte getild door een geraffineerde combinatie van fijne kruiden en zuren, bloesem- en fruittonen en een aromatische gerststructuur. En bovendien gebotteld in een prachtige, stijlvolle fles. Château Neubourg is bekroond met een European Beer Star Award en behoort daarmee tot de top drie van de wereld. Een bier om exclusief van te genieten! Dit bier is goed te combineren met schaal- en schelpdieren, voorjaarsgroenten, asperges, kip, salade en verse zalm.
Onze saison (5,6%) is een blonde, frisse knaller met drie fruitige hopsoorten. De funky gist geeft het bier een droge, kruidige smaak. Ideale dorstlesser voor iedere dag!

Two inflammatory words…one wild drink. Nectar imprisoned in a bottle. An anything-but-delicate blend of sharp hoppiness and fruity aroma, this beer is a life-changing backyard knife-fight for your palate. Once you’ve had a Raging Bitch, everything else pales in comparison. Fermented with a volcano-like Belgian yeast strain called “El Diablo,” Raging Bitch earned its polarizing name from the aggressively active nature of the yeast—unleashed, untamed, unbridled…and in heat. Enjoy its golden glow and white foaming head alongside bold flavors like spicy BBQ wings, blue cheese salads, or that bag of family-sized Cool Ranch Doritos you’re going to destroy later while binge-watching Netflix.

Westmalle Trappist Dubbel
Westmalle Dubbel is a dark, reddish-brown Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The creamy head has the fragrance of special malt and leaves an attractive lace pattern in the glass. The flavour is rich and complex, herby and fruity with a fresh-bitter finish. It is a balanced quality beer with a soft feel in the mouth and a long, dry aftertaste. The Dubbel contains 7% alcohol.
Westmalle Trappist Tripel
Was first brewed in 1934 and the recipe has not changed since 1956. It is made with pale candy sugar and has a very pale color produced from a mash of light pilsener malts. Styrian Goldings hops are used along with some German varieties and the classic Saaz pilsener hop. After a long secondary fermentation, the Tripel Westmalle is bottled with a dose of sugar and yeast. This beer holds up well in the bottle over time and seems to soften with age.
Erdinger Weißbier / Hefe-Weizen
The Premium Weissbier at the top of its class. Not only in the context of the Erdinger assortment Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast applies undisputed as the classical authors, as the white beer absolutely. It is brewed with fine yeast after a delivered prescription and naturally strictly after the Bavarian purity requirement. Today still without the traditional bottle fermentation one does not do here: Three to four weeks it lasts, until the Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast matured. For the production only finest raw materials are used. Experience of many years and constant quality controls guarantee beyond that the unmistakable taste. A Weissbier for all, those the unforgettable good taste love.
Karaktervol donker tarwebier. Texels Skuumkoppe is de trots van Texels; tarwebier waaraan diverse moutsoorten en de karakteristieke bovengisting een volle smaak geven.
De trots van Texels, tarwebier waaraan diverse hopsoorten en de karakteristieke bovengisting een vollere smaak geven dan aan ander tarwebier. ‘Skuumkoppe’ noemen de strandjutters op Texel de witte koppen op de golven van de ruige zee rond dit bijzondere eiland. Skuumkoppe is dan ook een bier voor elk seizoen. Nagisting op fles en ongefilterd, met een beetje gist om het extra gul te laten smaken. Hier hoeft geen schijfje citroen bij.

St.Bernardus Prior 8 is a traditional abbey ale brewed in the classic “Dubbel” style of Belgium’s Best Abbey Ales. It has a ruby to purple color, smooth, creamy richness of texture that is almost oily, and a malt-fruit complexity reminiscent of coconut. (8% alc. vol.)
It finds the perfect balance between sweet, bitter and malty tastes. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.

Zeezuiper is the flavour translation of brewing with a mission, whose name refers to the nature area which supplied our birthplace Bergen op Zoom of drinking water in the middle ages. An elegant and nobel classic.
Saison Dupont is a world classic beer and the yardstick for one of Belgium’s most important beer styles. It is the most admired AND imitated Saison in the world. A strong, vital yeast is key to full attenuation and thus to the style. Saison Dupont is straw colored with a dense creamy head. The nose is alive, like fresh raised bread, estery with citrus and spice notes. Full-bodied and malty, it sparkles on the palate and finishes with a zesty hop and citrus attack. Incredibly compatible with food!
NOTE: The ABV-value of this beer varies, in the United States 6.9% is used.
The Orval’s brewery produces only one beer to sell, a beer with a high fermentation that continues in the bottle. It is 6.2% ABV. This beer is brewed exclusively from spring water, barley malt, hop cones, candy sugar, and yeast. The aroma and the fine taste are due more to the hop cones and the yeast than to the malt that is used.
What’s special about Orval’s beer is that hops are added at two different stages of the production process. First, in the brewing room, a large quantity of very fine hops are added – this produces the famous bitter taste and is the reason why the beer keeps for a longer period of time. Later, in the storage cellars, hops are once again added. This is the so-called British “dry hopping,” which produces the delightful aroma that completely enraptures even the most carefully forewarned taster.
In the tasting room, Orval’s beer and cheese make a really good pair: the unique shape of the bottle and the glass, the design of the label, the coasters and other publicity materials – it’s all a legacy from the early 1930’s.

Leffe Blonde / Blond
In the fifties, an extraordinary meeting took place that all beer enthusiasts should raise their glass of Leffe to. The abbey’s Father Abbot Nys became acquainted with Albert Lootvoet, a master brewer. Passionate about the future of the brewery, Father Nys was upset to have to witness how, since the unpleasant stay of the French revolutionaries, the brewery had slowly fallen into decline and had eventually had to close its doors in 1809. Such a magnificent place could not be forgotten, he believed, and he vowed to bring the Leffe beer back. Father Nys and the brewer set about the challenge with vigour…and succeeded. Shortly after, the Leffe brewery was back in full effect. After Leffe Brown, a beer that shone brighter than the sun saw the light of day; they named it Leffe Blond – a beautiful chapter for Leffe indeed.
Leffe Blond is the flagship of Leffe. The unique recipe is the fruit of centuries of experience in the art of brewing, which brings a broad palette of aromas into balance. It is elegant, smooth and fruity, and it has a spicy aftertaste with a hint of bitter orange. Its light, sunny colour is due to the use of pale malt. Leffe Blond contains 6.6 % alcohol and fits excellently with a wide variety of dishes. It is best at a temperature of 5° to 6° Celsius. A thirst-quenching aperitif, for those relaxing moments with friends and family.
This is our unique version of an ancient style. A style as old as the ocean trade routes of the last centuries Great Ships. Not as old as the equator they had to cross twice enroute.
Lagunitas IPA was our first seasonal way back in 1995. The recipe was formulated with malt and hops working together to balance it all out on your ‘buds so you can knock back more than one without wearing yourself out. Big on the aroma with a hoppy-sweet finish that’ll leave you wantin’ another sip.
La Trappe Dubbel
A dark-brown Trappist ale with an ivory-coloured head. A fruity aroma with warm tones of vanilla, caramel and roasted chocolate. A classic Trappist ale with a full malty, caramel-sweet taste and the subtle, sweet influence of dates, honey and dried fruits. The aftertaste is sweet and slightly bitter.
La Trappe Tripel
La Trappe Quadrupel
A characteristically Trappist ale with a warm amber colour and a cream-coloured head. The aroma is associated with clover and nuts, balanced by the sweet aromas of vanilla, raisins and banana. La Trappe Quadrupel is the heaviest of all the La Trappe Trappist ales and it is also the source for the name of this style. A full, heart-warming and intense taste. Malty with sweet tones of dates and caramel. The aftertaste is smooth and slightly bitter.
Sipping a Liefmans Fruitesse on the rocks is like taking a city break in Berlin, soaking up the atmosphere in Milan or discovering culture in New York. Take your time to enjoy it in a friendly bar, or chilling out with your friends.
This sparkling appetiser beer, with its pale red colour, is at its very best in the stylish, playful Liefmans glass. Enjoy the fresh, intense flavour of strawberries, raspberries, black cherries, elderberries and blueberries.
Bubbling, sparkling and brim-full of fruity flavours, what more could you want for the final touch to a night out? And for a refreshing change, why not try it served on the rocks…
Kasteel Donker is a member of the Belgian quadrupel family. These are strong dark brown beers where the roasted malt predominates. The very first beer of the Kasteel range is a full-mouthed beer with hints of caramel, coffee and chocolate. The sweet initial taste makes this beer surprisingly complex but very accessible.
Kasteel Rouge is a unique blend of Kasteel Donker and macerated cherries. The ruby red colour, the rich foamy head and the sweet attack result in a specialty beer with a balanced taste and subtle hints of cherries. This fruity beer is easily digestible for quite a strong beer and makes a great aperitif on a sunny terrace. Are you ready for la vie en Rouge?
In 1842, at our brewery in Plzeň, brewer Josef Groll introduced the world to the first golden ‘pilsner’ lager, and changed beer forever. His invention soon became the most popular style of beer on the planet.
We’ve brewed Pilsner Urquell in the same brewery using the same recipe for over 175 years. Today, we still insist on using traditional methods, like triple decoction and parallel brewing in wooden lagering barrels. It takes longer but means we never compromise on our taste.
Pilsner Urquell’s signature flavour balances sweetness from the triple-decocted malt, and bitterness from our Saaz hops. The thick head of dense wet foam adds smoothness and seals in flavour and aroma.
In every sip of Pilsner Urquell you’ll notice a refreshing crispness from natural carbonation, then subtle caramel tones and a clean finish with a pleasing hoppy bitterness.
The very first beer brewed by Brouwerij ‘t IJ, back in 1985. It is a ‘tripel’, the category reserved for the stronger, blonde beers in Belgian tradition. Zatte more than lives up to expectations in this respect. It is a full-bodied, golden beer with a scent of fresh fruit mingled here and there with a hint of grain. The flavour is slightly sweet, ending with a fine, dry aftertaste. A delicious beer that can be enjoyed in all seasons.
Golden blond, multigrain beer with a very persistent, lacing head. Scent: A complex smell, with a citrus aroma, followed by hop aromas such as Saaz, Brewers Gold and Amarillo. Flavour: Initially rather sweet, because of the alcohol. The intense taste and roundness mask the presence of high bitterness.
Deze ‘Golden Ale’ heeft een stevige witte schuimkraag die uitnodigt om de geur van groene hop, gist en lichte fruittoetsen te ontdekken. Na een volle en verfrissende kruidige smaak verandert het pallet naar lichte citrus, sinaasappel en pompelmoes, ondersteund door de hop. De honingzachte afdronk laat een licht kruidige komijnsmaak uitlopen op een volle hopsmaak.
This golden ale has a dense white head that invites you to lean in and discover the fragrance of green aromatic hops, yeast and mild fruity notes. A full and refreshing palate shifts to mild citrus, orange and grapefruit, in combination with the hops. The sweet honeyed finish combines a slightly spicy flavor of cumin, ending with a nice kick of hops.
Gulden Draak Classic
Gulden Draak has been breathing fire at the Van Steenberge brewery since 1986. This characterful, fiery beer was originally commissioned by the Cruyl brewery in Assenede. At the time, it was a festive beer brewed just once a year for the Assenede fanfare.
Gulden Draak originated when Jozef Van Steenberge received one of his Italian customers back in 1986. The Italian visitor could feel the fire and insisted on buying the beer. At first, Jozef refused because he felt that the beer was too strong, but then he agreed on the condition that an order of 100 hectolitres was placed. At the time, it was a large amount that guaranteed an entire week of production. A beer with character also deserves a bottle with character, a unique white bottle, they decided together.
The name ‘Gulden Draak’ refers to the gilded dragon statue at the top of the Ghent Belfry. Legend has it that the dragon graced the bow of the ship used by Norwegian Sigurd Magnusson on his crusade in 1111. The statue still stands guard on top of the Ghent Belfry today as a symbol for the city’s freedom and power.
Oude Geuze Boon
Oude Geuze Boon is a monument of taste with an alcohol content of 7%. It’s a magnificent blend of 90% mild 18 month-old lambic, 5% strong 3 year-old beer and 5% very young lambic, which provides fermentable sugars and wild yeasts. All our beers are aged in oak casks, mixed in a vessel of 25,000 litres and chilled. Before bottling, we bring the mix to fermentation temperature. The bottles are then placed in an air-conditioned room, which leads to a secondary fermentation in the bottle. This is when the lambic becomes gueuze. After several months of aging in the bottle, the gueuze develops its delicate flavour. Want to know the bottling date? Simply subtract 20 years from the “best before” date!
Taste carefully and you will uncover a fruity grapefruit and ginger flavour with a hint of Muscat grapes. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the wholehearted body and the sublime finish – an explosion of Germanic and Romance cultures.
Blanche de Namur
“Cloudy, smooth and mellow, the Blanche de Namur is a very high-quality wheatbeer. From the first sip, you will feel all its roundness and its delicacy that make it an outstanding wheatbeer.
Its qualities and the brewery’s know-how earned it the honour of being named the best wheatbeer in the world (2009).”

Vedett Extra Pilsner (Extra Blond)
Vedett Extra Pilsner was formerly known as Vedett Extra Blond.
If blonds really do have more fun, imagine what they’d say about Vedett Extra Blond?! After all, who can resist her seductive straw colour and pearly-white head?
Her smooth, malty character with subtly balanced hops? Or her lingering fruitiness with subtle notes of vanilla?
Whatever your weakness, this premium pilsner offers full-bodied, thirst-quenching refreshment from start to finish. With a slightly bitter aftertaste to keep you on your toes.
Vedett Extra Ordinary IPA
The inventors of India Pale Ale may have originally added extra hops to help it survive the long voyage to India. But we just do it for the taste!
Every drop as thirst-quenching as the last, Vedett IPA offers an explosion of flavoursome bitterness that increases with intensity towards the finish, tempered by an unparalleled velvety smoothness resulting in a very accessible taste.
Fresh, fruity and floral notes give way to touches of caramel sweetness, while its superb, lingering aftertaste continues to tantalise the tastebuds long after. Here’s to a great-tasting, refreshing beer!
Duvel is a natural beer with a subtle bitterness, a refined flavour and a distinctive hop character. The unique brewing process, which takes about 90 days, guarantees a pure character, delicate effervescence and a pleasant sweet taste of alcohol.
Apart from pure spring water, which is the main ingredient of beer, barley is the most important raw material. Barley must germinate for five days in the malt house, after which malt remains. The colour of the malt and as a consequence also of the beer is determined by the temperature. Duvel obtains its typical bitterness by adding various varieties of aromatic Slovenian and Czech hops. We use only exclusive hops that are renowned for their constant, outstanding quality.
Duvel ferments for the first time in tanks at 20 to 26°C. The brewer uses his own culture for this. The original yeast strain, which Victor Moortgat himself selected in the 1920’s, originates from Scotland. After maturing in storage tanks in which the beer is cooled down to -2°C, the drink is ready for bottling. Thanks to the addition of extra sugars and yeast, the beer ferments again in the bottle. This occurs in warm cellars (24°C) and takes two weeks. Then the beer is moved to cold cellars, where it continues to mature and stabilise for a further six weeks. This extra long maturation period is unique and contributes to the refined flavour and pure taste of Duvel.
Trappistes Rochefort 8
Originally called “Spécial,” Rochefort 8 dates to the mid-1950s. The name comes from the original gravity in “Belgian degrees.”
Deep brown color; the flavor is vigorous and complex, with firm body to support the strength. The aroma has elusive notes of fresh fruit, spice, leather, and figs.
ABV 9.2 IBU 22
Trappistes Rochefort 10
Dominant impressions of latte coffee with powerful chocolate aromas in the nose. The alcohol esters are enveloped with hints of autumn wood, citrus zest (orange, lemon) and freshly baked biscuits. The initial taste is sweetly sinful. Beer and chocolate trapped into one single glass, a liquid milky draught with a backbone of bitter malt. The alcohol warms the throat and, in the finish, you will pick up traces of cloves, citrus, orange and mocha.
The heaviest of the Rochefort beers, the 10 is a quadrupel style beer and can be recognized by its blue label.
Zundert Trappist is een kastanjekleurig bovengistend bier met nagisting op fles. Het bevat 8% alcohol. We hebben gekozen voor een bier dat we ‘een beetje weerbarstig’ noemen. Dat wil zeggen, Zundert Trappist is een bier dat je de tijd moet geven om daadwerkelijk te doorgronden.
Ons trappistenbier heeft een veelbelovende geur met een zweem van kruiden en specerijen. In de aanzet is Zundert Trappist bloemig en iets zoet. Geef het bier wat tijd en het karakter evolueert van licht karamel naar een mooie en droge hopbitterheid. In de lange afdronk vloeien de bitters samen met een aangename kruidigheid op de achtergrond.
Gouden Carolus Classic
Gouden Carolus Classic, the ‘Grand Imperial Beer’ from Mechelen, is brewed with dark, very balanced dosed caramel and aromatic malts. This unique beer combines the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. This makes it very suitable in combination with culinary specialties such as stews, pâtés, ripened or strong cheeses.
Elected Worlds’ Best Dark Beer (World Beer Awards 2012).
Chimay Première (Red)
First sold in 75 cl (25.4 fl.oz.) bottles, it is noted for its copper color and as the first beer brewed by the monks of Chimay in 1862.
Topped with a creamy head, it gives off a light, fruity apricot aroma produced by the fermentation. The taste perceived in the mouth is a balance confirming the fruity nuances noticed in the fragrance.
Its taste, which imparts a silky sensation to the tongue, is made refreshing by a light touch of bitterness. To the palate, the taster perceives a pleasant astringency which complements the flavor qualities of this beer very harmoniously.
This top-fermented Trappist beer, re fermented in the bottle, is not pasteurized.
Chimay Grande Réserve (Blue)
The Chimay Blue Cap, baptized “Grande Reserve” in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavor of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer by the monks of Scourmont Abbey in 1956.
This authentic Belgian beer, whose tinge of fresh yeast is associated with a light rosy flowery touch, is particularly pleasant. Its aroma, perceived as one enjoys it, only accents the delightful sensations revealed by the odor, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note.
It is ideally served at cellar temperature (10 to 12°C).
Blonde with copper reflections, topped with a generous head, Hopus derives from a secret batch brewed for the marriage of Paul Lefebvre. It has a unique and original nose, a blend of vegetal, citrus and fruit notes. The attack is bold, with an intense bitterness accompanied by a plethora of hopped notes. On the palate, the fruity top-fermented aromas and the malted flavours perfectly balance the initial taste without masking it. The bitter aftertaste is persistent but not disturbing, powerful but not overwhelming, elegant but not opulent…in short, the perfect preparation for the next mouthful. Drink very cold as an aperitif with crisps and pickles, as an accompaniment to a spicy dish or as an after-dinner digestive.
Deep blonde in colour, Barbãr’s creamy head gives off a powerful aroma, unobtrusively scented with honey and accompanied by a bouquet of floral, spicy and citrus notes. The use of soft wheat gives a rounded attack, without heaviness. The sugar provided by the honey during the wort boiling undergoes fermentation and is converted into alcohol. Consequently, this is a soft but not sweet beer, with a touch of acidity which gives it freshness. The finish is full of finesse and without a bitter aftertaste. An original and distinctive beer whose distant origins go back to the “cervoise” brewed by our ancestors who called it “Warrior’s rest”.
In Napoleon’s time Pauwel Kwak was a brewer and the owner of the ‘De Hoorn’ inn in Dendermonde. Mail coaches stopped there every day. But at that time coachmen were not allowed to leave their coach and horses in order to have their thirst quenched along with their passengers. As a result, the inventive innkeeper had a special Kwak glass blown that could be hung on the coach. In this way the coachman had his Kwak beer safely at hand.
Kwak is recognisable by its deep bright amber colour and a dense, creamy coloured head. The pale wood of the glass holder makes a pleasant contrast with the beer.
You will smell a mellow, fruity and malty aroma with a slightly spicy character (coriander, hops). Additional earthy and very subtle aromas of banana and perhaps also a whiff of pineapple or mango in the background.
Discover a very mellow, fruity attack, a nougat-like solidity, and a slightly spicy character with hints of liquorice passing into a warm finish that reminds you of caramelised banana. The bitterness always remains in the background but in the end emerges delicately.
Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde. Written over 300 years ago, this recipe describes the use of three kinds of grain: wheat, oats and barley.
The name Tripel karmeliet thus refers both to its origin and its in-bottle refermentation. From many trial brews of multigrain tripels carried out at our brewery in the 90s, it appears that the particular historic combination of the 3 kinds of grain still remains the ideal blend.
Brugse Zot is a goldenblond beer with a rich froth and a fruity flavouring. The beer is brewed with four different kinds of malt and two aromatic varieties of hop which give the beer its unique taste.
With an alcochol degrees proof of 6 % Vol it is a well balanced, easy drinking beer with character.
Brugse Zot is a natural beer born out of a selection of only the best ingredients. Thanks to the refermentation in the bottle, the beer has a longer natural life.
Press the button, go ahead. What are you waiting for? Your mama’s not coming this time. Don’t slow down. Hammer it.
Start with huge grapefruit aroma. Pile on more bitterness than the human palate (or nipple) can detect, ride the anarchy and caramel craziness and let the devastatingly bitter finish drill straight through your taste buds.
Put a bullet in the head of mediocrity, raise hell and revel in bitter craft awesomeness. This beer is the end of the line. The hopped-up, puckered mouthed extreme of craft brewing. This beer is bitter. Very bitter. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Malt: Extra Pale
Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Citra, Columbus, Simcoe
An American IPA with a bitter edge that will push your citrus tolerance to the brink and back; Elvis Juice is loaded with tart pithy grapefruit peel. This IPA has a caramel malt base, supporting a full frontal citrus overload – grapefruit peel piled on top of intense us aroma hops. Waves of crashing pine, orange and grapefruit round out this citrus infused IPA.
Malts: Cara, Extra Pale
Hops: Amarillo, Citra, Magnum, Mosaic, Simcoe
Punk IPA is the beer that kick-started it. This light, golden classic has been subverted with new world hops to create an explosion of flavour. Bursts of caramel and tropical fruit with an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee, precede a spiky bitter finish. This is the beer that started it all – and it’s not done yet…
PUNK – Quintessential Empire with an anarchic twist.
Marris Otter Extra Pale.
Chinook, Simcoe, Ahtanum, Nelson Sauvin.
NB: Depending on the location and batch, this beer can be either 8.5% or 8.7%. Please do not post an edit request asking to change it from one to the other.
The allusion to pink elephants and the choice of names is not due to chance. With a particular character, the unique taste of results from the use of three different kinds of yeast. The result is a finish of peppery bitterness without aggression. The gray bottle hides a mystery awaiting discovery by the none faint of heart.
Mooie Nel IPA / Northsea IPA
Jopen Northsea IPA is an IPA (India Pale Ale) or, in old Dutch, a ‘Duraebel Scheepsbier’. These beers
were extra strongly brewed and extra hopped so that they could be taken along on the long sea voyages to the Dutch East Indies (current-day Indonesia). Nowadays this type of beer is making a comeback because American brewers have breathed new life into this brewing style. This hoppy
amber beer is named after the lake between the towns of Spaarndam and Haarlem, the Mooie Nel (literally: Beautiful Nel). The beer has received an extra hop addition to the tank after fermentation to give it a clear hop character. Silver medal winner Brussels beer Challenge 2014.
