Beer Name Style ABV Tasting Notes
Belgian Kriek Cherry 3.5% ABV sparkling cherry flavoured brew that is smooth and refreshing. It hits the nose with black cherry aromas, and a hint of malt. Tastes, again, of black cherries, and strikes a delicious balance between tart and sweet.
Blanche de Bruxelles Witbier 6.3% Blanche de Bruxelles owes its natural cloudiness to the large percentage (40 %) of wheat that goes into its composition. The natural spice aromas of coriander and bitter orange peels are added during the brewing process. The brewing method, which includes infusion, is very slow.
Brugs Zot Blond Blond 6.0% The only beer brewed in Bruges; at the Haalve Maan Brewery. A golden blond ale with a rich froth and a fruity nose. Light spicy taste and hoppy character that finishes with bitter-dry notes. Dave’s mums favourite so don’t drink it all !
St Feullien Saison 6.5% A warm golden blonde ale and a top-fermented classique. Saison has an unmistakable flavour full of rich nuances and a slight tang. A “hoppy”, unfiltered bee that is so emblematic of the rich Belgian tradition.
Mother Earth Cali Creamin Pale Ale 5.2% Our first US beer. Vanilla cream ale with a malty backbone thanks to some flaked corn and honey malt. Contains Madagascan Vanilla bean for a “Cream Soda” kick
Flensburger Lager Pilsner 4.2% North German Pilsner style beer . Easy drinking. Had your fill of Sparta ? Try this.
Timmerman’s Strawberry Fruit 4.0% No suprises. This is a Strawberry beer
Seene Taras Boulba Belgian Pale Ale 6.6% generously hopped with the finest aromatic hops, giving it a very refreshing character and a scent reminiscent of citrus. Nothing to do with our Chairperson Tara !!
Grisette Fruits of the Forest Fruit 3.5% Top fermeneted beer with Natural Fruit Juices added after fermentation is complete. Had enough of the Cherry beer ? Try this then !
Liefmans Fruitesse Cherry 4.2% Like the Cherry beer ?. The try this. A low alcohol pale beer with fruits of the forest added during the brewing process. Very sweet indeed. Not much more to say than that really.
Veltins Pilsner 4.8% North German Pilsner brewed using natural spring water from its own mountain !!. Delicate, dry and clean palate with a light citrus note. Tase test against the Sparta and see which you prefer.
St Feullien Tripel Tripel 8.5% This beer has a white, smooth and very compact head. Its pale amber colour is very characteristic revealing a distinctive maltiness. It has a rich aroma with a unique combination of aromatic hops, spices and the typical bouquet of fermentation – very fruity
Westmalle Dubbel Dubbel 7.0% Dark Red Trappist Beer from the Westmalle Abbey. The flavour is rich and complex, herby and fruity with a fresh-bitter finish. It is a balanced beer with a soft feel in the mouth and a long, dry aftertaste
Sparta Pils Pilsner 5.0% Unpasteurised pilsner style lager. Clean and refreshing on the palate and unlike the average lager you will find down the boozer. A festival classic.
Edringer Dunkel Dark Lager 5.3% A Dark Wheat beer with a deep dark-brown appearance . Hints of caramel, nuts and fresh bread. An unmistakable top-fermenting accent
