Means original, from the spring. This beer has been brewed in small scale (5 gallons). At home in a copper wash kettle, by two brothers who were students at the time.
They took over an old brewery which was out of business and said: "If we don't remake the brewery alive, nobody will!". It was also a unique opportunity to create some interesting brews, so why not try it ?
Therefore we van and will do the main work ourselves and keep the scale of the brewery like it was.
Since then, the brewery and its beers have been an inspiration source for a lot of brewers.
Oerbier is brewed from no less than 6 malts. Poperinge Golding hops in flowers and a special veast which makes it a little tart, especially with aging. At the brewery we have excellent cellars which have a constant temperature of 8°C and allow Oerbier to age at its best.
After a couple of years Oerbier tastes like it should have been blended with wine … Oerbier has been refermented in the bottle and contains a layer of yeast, having vitamins B. NAT en STRAF on the glasses means WET and STRONG, a warning for the 9 vol. alcohol content.
