Straffe Hendrik Xmas Blend

Advent Calendar Day: 24


Sooooo, if possible, we like to find something super special for the Calendar, and we figured the last day was a fitting one to put it on display.  You’ve spent 23 days reading our cheesy descriptions/nondescriptions of what you’re drinking, but describing the intricacy of this brew is best left to the brewery itself:

The de Halve Maan brewery is located in the heart of Bruges and is widely known for its highly acclaimed Straffe Hendrik quadrupel. A very limited selection of the quadrupel production is barrel aged each year in the medieval cellars of the brewery. For this special Xmas Blend, the barrel selection is determined by De Halve Maan’s brew masters, combining Bordeaux, Calvados and Rum barrel aged quadrupel with young quadrupel. This special blend is then refermented in the bottle, allowing for even more complexity, fine effervescence, and an extended shelf life – this special beer will age nicely for up to 5 years.
