Lupulus Hibernatus is black-coloured beer, strong (9°), brewed with malted barley (“pilsen” type) and torrefied barley. The hops used are coming from Slovenia. At the end of the boiling, the brewer add a bit of cinnamon. This combination with the torrefied barley gives the Hibernatus a powerful taste. The after-taste is at the same time bitter and sweet, and finishes on a light coffee touch.
Taste this beer regularly, well heats at home, but with moderation! You will see, it will help you to cross the winter and arrive in spring in a good shape!
Initially (in 2004) we started to provide the nearby pub our malted beers in casks. The brewery “Les 3 Fourquets” decided in 2007 to create a new beer in champagne bottles as well as in casks.
The desire of the brewers was to come up with a novel beer, and to brew it following authentic beer brewing traditions, while providing a new and unique palette of bouquet and taste, in a modern brewing installation.
The exceptional scope in which the brewery deploys its craftmanship gives a rich inspiration to the brewer of this beer.
The brewery was established in the bowels of a great 18th century farmstead, and is part of the Belgian Ardenne's inheritance, located in a jewelry box full of greens, next to a brook with pure and fresh water.
At one time wolves occupied these calm places in the wonderful Ardennes. It's been told that these wolf packs came from Slovenia, the region where the best hops in the world originally were harvested.
True or not, what ever it might be, a new beer has been born : LUPULUS
By the way, the Latin name of hop is "HUMULUS LUPULUS" which also means, literally
translated, “SMALL HUMBLE WOLF” .
