'op is op'
Our beers are only temporarily available. You'll have to visit us often to have the chance to taste them all.
keg or taptank
We're still saving up for a bottling line. In the mean time, our beers only come in kegs or our taptanks.

THE ``HALL OF FAME``

STILL RØKIN’

rauchbier | 5.5 % | 25 IBU | release: 06.01.2019

Our first beer of 2019 is a collaboration between  Côte West Brewing (Lausanne),  Dok Brewing Company and RØK.

Our homesmoked wheatmalt  is the key to the smokiness of this beer. The others malts we used (Munich, caramel-, and ryemalt) provide a malty base for the soft and spicy Hallertau Mittelfrüh to shine through.

NITRO MEET U

Double dryhopped New England double IPA | 7.5% | 65 IBU | release: 20.01.2019

Collab withNorthern Monk

This double dryhopped New England Double IPA of 7,5% has been saturated with nitrogen to create an extra creamy mouthfeel.  The  fluffiness, of the foam and the silkysmooth mouthfeel balance out the high hop dosage. We dryhopped this beer during different stages (during and after fermentation) to let their juicyness shine through. (HBC 472, Rakau, Mosaic).

SABROSURA

black ipa| 8 % | release: 02.02.2019 (Madrid), 15.02.2019 (Ghent)

A new collab, this time with La Quince. We added an almost indecent amount of mango to this black IPA and some chile Guajillo. Centennial, Chinook and Merkur were our hops of choice for this tropical black IPA. Summer in your glass!

IETS BLOND NIET TE BITTER

tripel | 7 % | 35 IBU | release: 17.02.2019 

‘Something blonde, not too bitter’ 🙂 Our own interpretation of a tripel: creamy en brewed with Belgian hops.

HAZY MIEN MOEDER NIE!

hazy ipa | release: 03.03.2019

An atypical hazy IPA brewed with Chevalier, oat-and wheatmaltflakes. You probably expect a juice bomb but we worked with less obvious hop varieties.

We used the same amount of Hüll melon (Germany), Motueka (New-Zealand) and Sorachi Ace (Belgium). The Belgian hops really stand out. They have been carefully processed by “‘t Hoppecruyt” (hopgrowers in Poperinge) in their “24h hops” project: the hops are picked, dryed, pelletised and packaged in 24 hours.

Aroma: coconut, lemongrass, wet wood and on the background some citrus and noble hop accents.  Strong bitterness in the first sip that is toned down by the creamy mouthfeel.

ROCCO ROAD

imperial stout | 13.5% | release: 07.03.2019

Birthbeer of Rocco, the son of our taproom manager. Rocco Road is based on Rocky road icecream. It’s a massive imperial stout of 13,5%  brewed with cacao, vanilla and amaretto.

In honour of this beautiful event, we’ve bottled a small portion of this brew on 50cl bottles.

DUBBEL GEPARKEERD IN DE SLEEPSTRAAT

dubbel | 6.5´% | release: 12.03.2019

A dubbel of 6,5% brewed with pilsmalt, crystalmalt and a ton of Golden Naked Oats. The oats give a nutty aroma and fullbodied mouthfeel. Our version is more bitter than the traditional dubbel. We used Mandarina Bavaria and Rakau for aromahops.

FRAMBO VI

Berliner Weisse | 6´% | release: 17.03.2019

A cloudy and pink Berliner Weisse of 6% with lactose, oats, wheat and a ton of rapsberries. Frambo VI was saturated with nitrogen and  we pour it from one of our nitro taps. Tart, fruity and creamy!

TJIEPMUILE

rye saison | 5´% | release: 28.03.2019

Hoppy rye saison of only 5% ABV.  Bone dry with somewhat a bitter bite that will leave you wanting more. Tjiepmuile was hopped in the kettle with Golding and Brewers Gold.

A thurst quencher that we serve from one of our taptanks.

In case you are wondering…’Tjiepmuile’ is ‘Ghentian’ for crybaby.

KEEP ON TRIPEL

tripel | 8´% | 35 IBU | release: 25.04.2019

For this tripel we used the almost forgotten Belgian hop variety Groene Bel. This used to be a very popular hop before the second world war, but due to the growing popularity of pilsners, it got replaced by German and Czech hop varieties that better suit the pilsner-style (like Hallertau and Saaz) . For decades, Groene Bel was only used for breeding, no longer for brewing.

As Belgian brewers, we can only applaud the return of our very own Groene bel. 

Groene bel is known for its continental, spicy and earthy aroma with whiffs of indigenous fruits.

WHITE MCA

white lager | 6´% | 45 IBU | release: 27.04.2019

This is a hybrid between a lager and a wheat beer. As for tradidional Belgian white/wheat beers, we used wheat in our mash tun to generate a somewhat spicy taste and cloudy appearance.

We also used coriander and curacao for some citrusy freshness. And of course, some hops: Loral in the whirlpool and dryhopping with Mosaic en Amarillo. All of this goodness fermented with a lager yeast making this beer a hoppy, spicy and quaffable lager.

BRAINSTORM SESSION IPA
session IPA | 5´% | 40 IBU | release: 05.05.2019

MET JE MOER TEGEN DE DAMPOORT
triple IPA | 10´% | 65 IBU | release: 04.06.2019

Our collab with De Moersleutel. Massive amounts of aroma hops were added in whirlpool and dry-hop. In total 20 grams of hop were added per liter beer. ((Magnum, Cashmere, Falconer’s flight and Citra cryo hops)

KVITKA

tropical stout | 7´% | release: 04.06.2019

Our collaboration brew with Varvar.  A tropical stout with the focus on smoothness. Roasted malts were mashed separately to create less bitterness and more chocolate notes. A complex malt bill consisting of Maris Otter, roasted barley, special carafa type II, rye, dark crystal, cara 120 and mais flakes will create a rich and full malt profile.

On top we added Ukrainian honey and cane sugar during fermentation. Aroma hopping with HBC472. This complex unity has fermented with a lager strain.

STICKY WINGS

Double mash imperial rye stout | 9´% | release: 05.07.2019

Expect a think, oily, full-bodied stout. We brewed the Sticky Wings with 20% rye and mashed in twice. It was no small endeavor to brew this heavy one, but we’re more than pleased with the result!

Sticky Wings also comes in bottles.

HAKA JUICE

Pacific New England pale ale | 5.5´% | release: 05.07.2019

We finally managed to get our hands on one of our favorite hops: Nelson Sauvin!

We brewed a pale ale of 5,5% with Rakau en Citra. Juicy, spicy with tones of white grapes (thank you, Nelson!) and citrus. All supported by a full body thanks to the oats we added. A creamy and velvety mouthfeel as is typical for a New England.

DUDE WHERE ARE MY PANTS

white sour IPA | 5´% | release: 26.07.2019

Our white sour IPA of 5% royally hopped with Ekuanot and Mosaic. As for our other tart beers, this beer was kettle soured with lactobacillus plantarum creating a clean tartness.

Both in the whirlpool and dryhop we added 5g/l Mosaic and Ekuanot. The result is a refreshing bouquet of peach, mango and citrus.

VLIERBOEZEM

saison | 4.5´% | release: 08.08.2019

GO KVEIK YOURSELF

New England IPA | 5.5´% |  pre-release at Bxl Beerfest: 24.08.2019

Double dryhopped with HBC431 and Mosaic cryo hops, fermented with Hornindal kveik yeast.

Hornindal yeast has the quality to push tropical hop aromas to a next level and it sure made this beer a tropical fruit bomb.

Pro-Pale is our tribute to hardcore legends Pro-Pain and frontman Gary Meskil. Pro-Pale is a hoppy pale ale, easily drinkable (5% ABV) and packed with aromatic Sorachi Ace hops from the Belgian hop farm Hoppecruyt.

We released this beer in the brewery with a special Pro-Pain gig.

KÖLSCH IS NOT A PILS, IT IS A DJ

Kölsch | 5´% | release: 12.10.2019

This Kölsch-style beer is all about simplicityt: 1 malt (pilsmalt), 1 hop (Saaz) and a neutral yeast that work together to create a quaffable beer of 5%.

This is an oldschool sessionbeer, the kind you can drink and savour all day.

KAN SPOREN VAN PECANNOTEN BEVATTEN 

Quadrupel | 9% | release: 15.10.2019

This quad of 9% was brewed with roasted pecannuts and maple syrup. It’s not a pecannut-bomb but is a subtle and nuanced beer.

We didn’t use extract but ‘the real stuff’: we added the roasted nuts before sparging the grains so that the pecans could release all their flavor while preventing the oils from impacting the foam stability.

THE ETERNAL SUNSHINE ON THE SPOTLESS SAISON 

hoppy imperial saison | 8% | release: 29.10.2019

This collaboration brew was made together with our Patagonian friends from La ZORRA – Cerveza Artesanal.

Maris Otter pale ale, rye and wheat malt give this imperial saison its cereal backbone to balance out the large amounts of the New Zealand hop variety Nelson Sauvin. It ain’t easy to get your hands on fresh Nelson, so our quest was to make the best possible beer with it. The result is a crisp and clean imperial saison of 8% ABV with a cool climate wine fruitiness. 

Also available in cans.

Especially for “Dia de los muertos” we brewed a beer for El Cis: a DIPA with fresh lime zest, coriander and corn.

Expect a fresh IPA with a perfect balance between sunny lime and fruity hops. We used different C-hops;  Citra, Comet, Colombus and Centennial. We used an isolated yeast strain from Lærdal Kveik.
