Abdij Bock
STEENBRUGGE Abdij Bock abbey beer is a brown/ruby-coloured bock beer with a
straightforward malty-caramel character and a fruity, lightly smoked yeast aroma. Com-
bined with the subtle Bruges “gruut” blend of herbs and spices, with an emphasis on
cinnamon, this gives the bock beer its delicious flavour. Top-fermentation beer.

Bruges “gruut”
The secret of STEENBRUGGE abbey beer is the unique “gruut” blend of herbs and
spices, which gives the beer its delicious flavour. Every town used to have its own beer,
each with its own individual character. In Bruges that character was determined by a
blend of herbs and spices that brewers were obliged to purchase from the city’s herbs
and spices shop, known as the “Gruuthuse”. In STEENBRUGGE Abdij Bock this medi-
eval tradition is continued.
Steenbrugge yeast
STEENBRUGGE Abdij Bock is fermented with its own
STEENBRUGGE top-fermenting yeast strain, which
provides a smoked, phenolic aroma, together with a
discernible fruitiness.
