Bottled Beer

We have a selection of bottled beers that some people might call rare. They're not really rare, just a little hard to find if you don't know where to look. Fortunately, we do.  We don't go on about it, but we probably should. But then we'd have to share them. I'm so confused...

Mort Subite Kriek - 250ml bottle

A purebred Belgium Kriek with the full fruitiness of fresh cherries and the refreshingly sour twist of lambic. Belgium cherries are added once a year following harvest, after which the cherry lambic is blended with young lambic to deliver a perfectly balanced beer. ABV 4% IBU 36

Duchesse de Bourgogne - 250ml

Duchesse de Bourgogne from Brouwerij Verhaeghe is a 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. ABV 6% IBU 11

Rodenbach Grande Cru - 330ml bottle

This is an aged Belgian red ale, which is ‘ripened quietly in oak barrels for two years’, according to the label. It has an extremely pungent aroma of rich grapey fruit, with acidic notes, very much like a slightly sour red wine or possibly a gueuze.In the mouth it is slightly sweet, extremely acidic and fruity, with grapes and even cherries discernible, and very lively. Despite the sweetness it is not at all cloying, even thin, with little or no trace of malt. Finish is sharp and fruity. ABV 6% IBU 35

Regular price $13.50

Yeastie Boys Her Majesty 2016 - 750ml

The second of two results from a Yeastie Boys' blending session in September 2016. They blended a fresh young dark ale with a combination of wine barrel-aged vintage ales (three year old wild PKB and two-year old Cherry Ghost). Tasting better than ever as of May 2020. ABV 7% IBU 45

Regular price $21

Trappistes Rochefort 8 - 330ml bottle

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
