Organic Beer for Heroes


Beer for Real Men
7,2 vol. % alc. For the heroic explorer, the glorious hero that can handle an impressive bitterness, who takes a leep into the unknown and is not afraid of the unexpected, who makes the ultimate sacrifice to show others the only way to an honorable ideal. A golden cloud of vanilla blossom and fruity aromas, a flashy touch of peach and banana, then an unexpected turn of sour seasoning in the first raid, and an echoing explosion of hops just before the next one. Dobbel-Tripel
7,8 vol. % alc. For the brave who dare to handle the heavy artillery, who provide a steady cover that can withstand an unexpected attack, and for those who shall always be the last man standing after the battle has long gone. A ruby bloody red color, sour cabbage wefts, a misty thick layer of foam, aromas of red wine and dark fruit, a set of cognac barrels, licorice and a hint of oak, burning malt with caramel.

1940 -1945 WW II - Front in the East
At the eastern border of Belgium, in the green province of Limburg, lies the county of Riemst where began on May 10, 1940 WWII for Belgium. It was here at this eastern border in 2014 that, In honor of "100 Year Great War", an artisan organic beer with Allied ingredients was born with the proud name Oudstrijder (Eng. = veteran). There the beer will be mounted. A beer that unites exactly one century later, East and West, and that pays tribute to the heroes who gave their lives for our freedom of today. 1914 -1918 WW I - Front in the West
Oudstrijder is brewed in Ichtegem near the Front at the Yser of WWI, at the North Sea in the west of Belgium, according to a pure and unique antebellum recipe. After a six week brew, the beer bridges the country and will age in the eastern subterranean vaults of the bridge at Vroenhoven, right under the historic bunker. Here it will remain at least another month to mature in peace, just steps from the colossal fortress of Eben-Emael. Two Wars
 Two Fronts
Brewery Strubbe Originated in 1831, the year of the Belgian Independence
In the west of Belgium, near the Yser Front of WWI, the peaceful Ichtegem lies. In the shadow of the 17th century St Michael's Church is we find the traditional brewery Strubbe, the Virgin of Ghent as she was formerly called. The brewery was founded in 1831 when a certain Carolus Strubbe left the market town of Tielt to try his luck in flax municipality Ichtegem. He was a farmer and brewer. Since its establishment the brewing family has counted six generations, from father to son. Today master brewer Marc Strubbe as the sixth generation is at the helm.
