THE BEERS

STEIGL-GOLDBRAU PREMIUM LAGER
SALZBURGER, AUSTRIA

BREWERY

For more than 120 years the brewery has been owned by the Kiener family and since 1990 Dr Heinrich Dieter Kiener (III.) has been responsible for the company’s fortunes.

During this period of time, Stiegl has developed from a small local brewery into Austria’s largest and most successful private brewery. Independent businessman, Dr Heinrich Dieter Kiener assumed responsibility and has developed a sound local economic structure with 700 secure workplaces throughout Austria.

Stiegl’s top priority is the use of local raw materials and a respectful use of natural resources. However, in everything they do, making customers, suppliers and employees feel appreciated is of paramount importance.

BEER

Stiegl-Goldbräu is a traditional Salzburg beer specialty with 12° Plato and a characteristic golden-yellow color. A full-bodied beer with a gentle bitterness brewed using indigenous ingredients. Wonderfully refreshing and very agreeable.

"Salzburg's liquid gold."

OLD SPECKLED HEN ESB
MORLAND BREWERY
ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM

BREWERY

Brewing has been carried out commercially in Abingdon for centuries, including at the Abbey prior to its dissolution in 1538. In 1711 a farmer, John Morland, set up a brewery in West Ilsley, Oxfordshire, brewing fine ale and porter for pubs in and around London. In the 1860s, Morland’s acquired local competitors Abbey Brewery and Eagle Brewery and moved its operation to Westgate Street in Abingdon. Reflecting its growth, Morland’s changed its name to United Breweries in 1885. A new brewhouse was built in Ock Street in 1912, and the firm continued to buy up other breweries and pubs in the following decades.

BEER

This great British ale was first brewed in 1979 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic MG car factory in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

And what a celebration! Auburn and copper on the eye; malty, toffee notes on the nose; and then a further lovely helping of malt in the taste, with distinctive hints of caramel balanced by a touch of fruit. As English as English can be.

The secret to its success? Crystal and pale malts first and foremost, plus our Master Brewer’s blend of Challenger, Pilgrim, First Gold and Goldings hops. Especially fine with full-flavoured meats, roasts, sausages and pies.

HOUBLON CHOUFFE IPA TRIPEL
BRASSERIE D'ACHOUFFE

BREWERY

The story begins in the late 1970s, in the middle of the Vallée des Fées (the Valley of the Fairies), when two brothers-in-law, Pierre Gobron and Chris Bauweraerts decided to create their own beer in the garage belonging to Chris’ mother-in-law. With the little money they had at the time, they began what the brewery’s fans now call the “Chouffe Story”. The 1st brew of 49 litres was produced on 27 August 1982.

BEER

Highly sought-after by connoisseurs, Houblon CHOUFFE is a strong beer - 9% alc./vol., with a bitter and fruity taste. To recreate the bitterness of IPAs, we add three types of hops to our brews: Tomahawk, Saaz and Amarillo. Houblon CHOUFFE is the first Belgian IPA. Taste this magnificent beer and you can appreciate its subtle grapefruit note. This beer is also extremely popular as an ingredient in culinary dishes.

DWARFS

As the brewery grew, so did its family of dwarfs. Marcel (La Chouffe) and Malcolm (Mc Chouffe) found themselves joined by new companions including Matthew (Houblon Chouffe) and now Micheline (Cherry Chouffe)! Each dwarf represents one of the beers in the range, and each has their own story and characteristics.
