Ecaussinnes Cookie Beer NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Historically there were 6 breweries in Ecaussinnes. At that time there were about 3500 breweries in Belgium, however now there are only around 127 left. One of them, the "Brasserie des Carrières" started making beer in 1897. They made the Ultra beer until 1970. In this year they transferred the production to another brewery. In this "Brasserie du Progrès" the water they used was completely different. As beer contains 90% of water the quality is very important. In 1972 production of the "Ultra" was stopped. In 1999, Hugues and Isabel Van Poucke decided to install a brewery in a nicely restored farm-castle. Important families and even "La Comédie Française" once owned this large farm. Most of the equipment used in the new brewery was found in Czechie. In April 2000 the first beer was served in the beautiful tavern above the brewery. During the summer of 2001 the Ultramour beer was made. This fruity beer consists of 4 different fruit tastes. The origine of the name comes from the famous festivity "Le Goûter Matrimonial" which has existed for 100 years. Every year during the Christmas period a typical Christmas beer is brewed. The Cookie Beer is a rich and sweet brew, with aromas of ginger and molasses and great tastes of cinammon, cloves and gingerbread.
