St Stefanus is the perfect gift for the beer aficionado in your life, it is an unpasteurised high fermentation beer that is refermented in the bottle. It is brewed using three different yeasts, one of which is the Jerumanus Yeast strain from Sint Stefanus, which gives the beer its distinctive flavour. After brewing, the beer is stored for a minimum of three months before cellar release.
The bottles are then stored at 24ºC for two weeks, allowing the secondary fermentation to begin. Once the bottles are removed from the refermentation room, they are stored at cellar temperature for a minimum of three months to develop the distinctive flavour. The beer will continue to mature in the bottle until it is opened, meaning you can choose to drink it just how you want it.
