STEENBRUGGE Abdij Bock abbey beer is a brown/ruby-coloured bock beer with a straightforward malty-caramel character and a fruity, lightly smoked yeast aroma. Combined with the subtle Bruges “gruut” blend of herbs and spices, with an emphasis on cinnamon, this gives the bock beer its delicious flavour. Top-fermentation beer.

Bruges “gruut”

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 Abdij Bock this medieval tradition is continued.

Steenbrugge yeast

STEENBRUGGE Abdij Bock is fermented with its own STEENBRUGGE top-fermenting yeast strain, which
provides a smoked, phenolic aroma, together with a discernible fruitiness.
