Blend of young, fresh ale w/ mature, barrel-aged ale

Drie Fontenein’s Geuze and fruit Lambics (cherry, raspberry) are rare, highly prized, and indisputably among the best of Belgium. We have been begging Armand for years to send us some of his exquisite Geuze and Kriek. He always says the same thing, “I am ready only when I know that I have something very, very special for you.” Suddenly, this spring, he called and announced, “I have it.”
Armand believes that this blend from 1999 is the best Geuze he has ever made. It is a classic blend of one, two, and three-year old lambiks, bottled in 1999 and carefully watched while it continues to re-ferment in the bottle. Properly stored, it will only get better and better for at least the next 10 years. We will be getting some Oude Geuze 2000 as well. This newer blend is also exquisite.
Like any traditional geuze, Drie Fonteinen’s Oude Geuze is tart, earthy, and incredibly complex, but also spritzy as champagne and greatly refreshing.

Based loosely on the Smokestack Series’ The Sixth Glass, this abbey-style quadruple is separated into a number of oak bourbon barrels where it ages for varying lengths of time, some for up to three years. Cherries are added to make up for the “angel's share” of beer lost during barrel aging. Selected barrels are then blended for optimum flavor. The resulting beer retains only very subtle cherry characteristics, with toffee and vanilla notes coming to the fore.

Brandy Land is a cinnamon-infused, double-mashed imperial stout that slumbered 12 to 24 months in casks that held bourbon and apple brandy. Boasting notes of chocolate, espresso, baked apple and spiced wood, Brandy Land’s delectable blend ends with a warm, lingering finish.

MENABREA is matured gently in the perfect temperature of our cave cellars for a taste of superior clarity. This 4.8% ABV pale lager is well balanced between citrus, bitter tones and floral, fruity undertones giving a consistent and refined flavor. It has a complicated malty, hoppy taste with an exceptional head retention due to the quality of our ingredients and maturation process.

Hop-forward beers weren’t popular when we started brewing in 1980. But we loved them, and we knew that if we were going to open a brewery, we’d better make something distinctive. It’s been 40 years since then, and we’re still brewing what we love. This beer showcases the bold flavors and aromas of a classic West Coast IPA: intense pine and citrus with a deep gold color and slight caramel sweetness. Here’s to following your passion, and to the next 40 years.
