Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin

The abbey beer Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin is a brown beer with a busty caramel malt character and a fruity, slightly smoked fermentation aroma in combination with the subtle Bruges herb mixture 'gruut', with emphasis on cinnamon. Beer of high fermentation. The secret of Steenbrugge abbey beer is the unique “gruut” blend of herbs and spices, which gives the beer its delicious flavour. Every town used to have its own beer, each with its own individual character. In Bruges that character was determined by a blend of herbs and spices that brewers were obliged to purchase from the city’s herbs and spices shop, known as the “Gruuthuse”. In Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin this medieval tradition is continued. Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin is fermented with its own Steenbrugge top-fermenting yeast strain, which provides a smoked, phenolic aroma, together with a discernible fruitiness.
