Created in association with the Abbey of the Order of Prémontré, Heverlee is inspired by the beers first brewed by the monks in medieval times.
Returning to his birthplace of Leuven, our master brewer embarked on a mission to rediscover and recreate this classic bygone taste. Exploring the Abbey library, he learned of a light, fresh tasting beer and used descriptions of the ancient beer to create Heverlee.
Heverlee is brewed using the finest ingredients, including the Saaz hop – the most expensive in the world.
Pouring the perfect pint, it’s all in the detail. When you put as much effort into brewing a beer like Heverlee, you should demand nothing less than a precision pour.
A knowing tilt of 45 degrees nurtures a smooth creamy head, rising slightly above the glass before being beheaded at the bar in a single smooth motion. By removing larger air bubbles, this ritual helps prevent oxidation and ensures that the head stays bitter while the beer beneath remains sweet, for a beautifully balanced taste.
