Van Twee –
Brewmasters Collaboration with John Mallet
The 2009 collaboration brew was created with John Mallet of Bell’s Brewing in Michigan. Van Twee is a “mash-up” of the porter and dubbel styles blended with sour cherry juice from Michigan and brettanomyces in the secondary fermentation. It is a rich, dark beer capped by tan foam. Malty layers of chocolate and coffee trade on the palate with sour brett and dark fruit notes. Reminiscent of the famous fruit-filled chocolates of Belgium. July 2009 selection – Michael Jackson’s Rare Beer Club
