WHERE DO WE BREW THE BEERS?
De Hemel’s beers are brewed in the Stadsbrouwerij in the Brouwzaal (the restaurant area) and in the cellars of Commanderie van Sint Jan. On Monday and Tuesday afternoon, you can even see brewer Henk doing what he does best during a lunch or a High Tea. The brewery also offers guided tours with an extensive explanation of the brewing process and the Brouwerij’s history. In collaboration with Brouwerij De Hemel, Restaurant & Brouwerscafé De Hemel also offers arrangements in which you can combine a lunch or a dinner with a guided tour.
WHICH BEERS DO WE BREW AT DE HEMEL?
Stadsbrouwerij de Hemel produces the following beers, which are also served during the beer tastings:
- Luna 5 %: Pilsner, brewed with a high yeasting, a mild bitter and a rich taste. Glowing as the moon.
- Godelief 5 %: Amber-coloured beer, brewed with a hint of caramel malt. Divine hops.
- Serafijn 5 %: White beer, brewed with orange zest and coriander. Fresh and fruity, a derivation of the first Dutch white beer: De Witte Raaf (The White Raven).
- Mariken 6.5 %: Fresh blonde beer, aromatically seasoned with a secret herb that makes you happy!
- Moenen 6.5%: Smoked bock beer, brewed with smoked malt. The beer has a smoky aroma and a distinct taste.
- Helse Engel 8 %: Blonde mild tripel. Gevleugeld met hop, light and treacherous.
- Nieuw Ligt 10 %: Dark and mysterious barley wine. Richly aromatic because of the sweet caramel, with a dry aftertaste.
- Nieuw Ligt Grand Cru 12 %: Subtle, mild and sweet. The fact that it has been fermented a second time and that it has been ripened in a keg for at least 2 years, makes this beer a remarkable experience!
- Seasonal beers: to know which seasonal beers we serve, follow our Facebook page or blog.
