Grimbergen is an authentic Belgian Abbey Beer. The brand’s origins can be traced to 1128 when St. Norbert founded the Abbey of Grimbergen in the village of Grimbergen near Brussels in Belgium. The area surrounding the Abbey produced hops and barley of the highest quality and over a number of years the monks perfected a range of Grimbergen recipes that were eagerly drunk by patrons of the inn attached to the Abbey.
The Grimbergen abbey was destroyed three times in its history, and after each wave of destruction, it was rebuilt. Fittingly, the Father of Grimbergen took for their emblem the Phoenix, symbolizing the perpetual rebirth of their abbey, and adopted a motto in honor of the mythical bird: Arder Nec Consumitur (It burns yet is not destroyed).
- Grimbergen Blonde – Grimbergen Blonde is an Ochre colored top fermented abbey beer. The use of Gatinais barley, combined with carefully selected hops creates a perfectly balanced, relatively light tasting beer with a fruity, malty taste.
- Grimbergen Dubbel – Born from double fermentation, Grimbergen Dubbel is a generous beer with a dark robe, thanks to the mixing of different malts. The taste is rich and full-bodied. This amber beer boasts flavors that are both sweet and bitter, with subtle notes of caramel. Its dark, warming finish complements a range of hearty meat dishes.
