Come join us at Legacy Liquor Store Thursday, July 21 and help celebrate Belgian National Day that commemorates an event on July 21, 1831 in which Leopold of Saxe-Cobourg swore allegiance to the new Belgian constitution, thus becoming the nation's first monarch. The king's vow marked the start of the independent state of Belgium under a constitutional monarchy and parliament and we're going to help celebrate by sampling some of Belgians finest commodity.....their amazing beers. Lot of give-aways, tastes and fun. Come join us.
Timmermans Brewery, the oldest Lambic brewery in Belgium and winner of the Worlds Best Sour Beer medal, has released it's exceptional Flanders Bruin, Bourgogne des Flandres, in 20L OW kegs (SKU 48520). We were able to secure a very limited amount and are expecting it in our warehouse very soon.
Bourgogne des Flandres is the real taste of Bruges. The mixed fermentation is what makes this beer so special. A top-fermented brown ale is subtly blended with the best spontaneously fermented lambic, which is then matured in oak barrels for many months. It is this process that gives the red-brown beer a rich, creamy finish.
Also available at private beers stores in 330ml bottles (SKU 468447).

We have in stock our allotment of Straffe Hendrik Wild (sku 872333) from de Halve Maan Brewery, the Bruges brewery who are building a pipeline under the streets of Bruges to get their products to their thirsty customers throughout the city.
Straffe Hendrik Wild is a “wild” version of the famous Straffe Hendrik Tripel. The traditional triple beer is re-fermented with a wild “Brettanomyces” yeast, that creates unusual fruity aromas in harmony with the rich use of aromatic hop varieties. The wild yeasts also provide a longer natural shelf life to the beer and taste developing over the years.
The beer needs a longer maturing period in the bottle before it can be released and therefore matures in the bottle for 3 months in the cellars of the brewery. The re-fermentation with wild yeast is only complete after 3 months and the young beer is palatable. The beer will continue developing in the subsequent years. The bitter hop aromas will become softer, whereas the wild Brettanomyces yeasts will continue working and creating hints of fruit, flowers and wine.
Straffe Hendrik Wild is only bottled once a year and is released in April. The beer combines the rich tradition of this Bruges triple beer with the innovating work with wild Brettanomyces. The result is a unique beer appreciated by beer lovers worldwide.
