Brewer gets in the abbey habit


A BELGIAN abbey beer brewed to mature in the bottle has been launched by Miller Brands.

St Stefanus Grand Cru is produced to the traditional recipe of a ‘tripel’ brew, which is said to add depth and complexity to the beer’s taste and aroma.
Sam Rhodes, director of customer marketing at Miller Brands, said the addition of the 9% ABV beer to its world beer portfolio aims to build on the success of St Stefanus Blonde – an unpasteurised, high fermented 7% ABV Belgian abbey beer which it introduced last year.
“By stocking more authentic and quality beers, outlets and retailers can encourage consumers to trade up and maximise profits,” Rhodes said.
