CELEBRATED COLD ONES
light and creamy, this beer dates back to 1679, truly standing against the test of time
Your everyday beer, perfectly balanced in every way and bursting with flavour
Full bodied and complex, the only reason this doesn't take 1st is that you can only have one
Edgar Allen Poe
“Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chambers of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies,
Come to life and fade away:
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today.”
BOGOTA BEER COMPANYMonserrate Roja
Simple yet satisfying; nothing complicated here, just a balanced, refreshing IPA perfect for a hot summer's day in Colombia, or wherever you might find yourself.
This tripel style beer is near perfection; it's bursting with complex flavours which hint at sweet fruit but is balanced by it's dry finish
BROUWERIJ DE HALVE MAANBrugse Zot
Crisp, medium-bodied Belgian blonde, upfront with wheat and hints of orange, best enjoyed at the brewery in Bruges.
TRAPPISTENBROUWERIJ DE KIEVITZundbert Trappist
Can't go wrong with any trappist beer; this one is full-bodied and complex with notes of citrus and barley with a slightly tart undertone
Good body on this one; nicely carbonated with fruit and yeast notes followed by a slightly bitter aftertaste
BROUWERIJ BOSTEELSPauvel Kwak
with it's unparalleled glassware (which you drink using the wooden stand as a handle), this beer doesn't disappoint: bittersweet with a hint of banana and spice
Delicious medium-bodied tripel with citrus and yeast notes which finishes off crisp and slightly spicy
BIERES DE CHIMAYTripel (White)
Sweet, spicy and dry; this beer is well-balanced and hides it's 8% ABV well
BROUWERIJ ST. BERNARDUSABT 12
Surprisingly light for such a dark, strong beer (if that makes any sense); slightly sweet with notes of figs, bread and malts
Though this is technically a lambic fruit beer, it tastes like carbonated peach juice; it's delicious, but I find it hard to consider this a beer
BRASSERIE DE ROCHEFORTRochefort 10
Incredibly complex and mouthwatering; spicy, sweet booze (read: it's one strong beer)
Mildly hoppy, slightly sweet; this Belgian pale ale disappoints (especially considering its country of origin), nothing really stands out
