TARWE BEER | 8% ABV
An ode to all the big plans and hazy memories created in the little Bruges bear since Daisy Claeys opened the bar in 1983.
Daisy Claeys opened t' Brugs Beertje in 1983.
Over the next three decades, the 'little Bruges bear' would become one of Bruge's most important and celebrated beer cafés.
To celebrate 35 years of 't Brugs Beertje and the work that Daisy did in promoting beer culture in the city, we created a beer with the new owner of the café, Dries Bouckaert.
We call it a 'Tarwe Beer', with malted wheat making up 45% of the grain bill to deliver an attractive haze, and subtle additions of vanilla contributing to a luscious mouthfeel.
It's a hybrid of a wheat beer, a Belgian Tripel and an English bitter, the result being a fruity, creamy, bitter-sweet ale of 8% ABV.
Hazy Daisy is only available to try—from the tap and by the bottle—in t' Brugs Beertje cafe, on Kemelstraat in Bruges:
