A surprising beer with a unique taste.
Bourgogne des Flandres occupies a very special place in the Belgian beer landscape. It is a typical example of the Flemish traditional beer tradition in which old and young beer are mixed judiciously until a perfect balance is achieved.
Specifically, Den Bruinen Os, which is brewed on site in the attic, is blended with lambic from Timmermans Brewery. This lambic has matured in wooden barrels for more than twelve months. The result is a surprisingly reddish-brown beer, low in alcohol content and complex in taste.
The recipe from generation to generation
The Bourgogne des Flandres recipe is passed on to other family breweries under the watchful eye of Michel Van Houtryve and ends up in the hands of the oldest lambic brewery in the world Timmermans near Brussels in the 1980s, which was taken up by John Brewery in the 1990s. Martin.
Under the direction of Anthony Martin, Bourgogne des Flandres enters the Finest Beer Selection and is once again recognized with a new brewery just steps from the original Den Os brewery.
