Sint Bernardus

Trappistenweg 23, B8978, Watou, Belgium

www.sintbernardus.be

This brewery really took off at the end of World War II, when St. Bernard(us) received the license for making the St. Sixtus ales from Westvleteren Brewery. That agreement ended in 1992, and now Sint Bernardus produces abbey ales and other styles of beer, some broadly in the vein of the St. Sixtus ales. They have diversified, however, partly thanks to the influence of Pierre Celis, founder of Hoegaarden and grandfather of the Belgian brewing revival. The beers are particularly popular in Denmark, and several beers have been specially designed exlusively for the Danish market.


Brewing secret

An original strain of yeast from the Trappist Westvleteren Brewery is still used at Sint Bernard.


St. Bernardus Witbier

beer style: Witbier
alcohol content: 5.5% ABV

One of the best witbiers available, since Pierre Celis himself advised on this sweet and sourish recipe.


St. Bernardus Bock

beer style: Bock
alcohol content: 6.5% ABV

This dark beer is top-fermented, with honey, caramel, earthy, and roasted notes.


St. Bernardus Tripel

beer style: Abbey Ale
alcohol content: 8% ABV

Special malts, coriander, and lots of sweetness reign in this blonde abbey ale.


St. Bernardus Abt

beer style: Abbey Ale
alcohol content: 10.5% ABV

The flagship ale; imagine liquid Baba au Rum or the Sachertorte chocolate cake with added fruit, and you’ll be close to the flavor.
