The body of the beer is perfect, not too full or light. There is an equilibrium between the hops and malt. You have the flavours from de la Sennes' own yeast that are balanced out with the maltiness. Everything in the beer works well together. The profile is spicy, zesty, herbal and floral. The German and Slovenian noble hops give it the needed bitterness. In the mouth, you may even notice a bit of pineapple and honey. 

It is a perfect thirst-quenching beer!
 

The story of Zinnebir

Get ready to discover the story of Zinnebir as it is unlike any beer that came out of thirst or experimentation. 

Zinnebir is brewed by Bernard Leboucq and Yvan De Baets, two Brussels-based brewers and founders of de la Senne brewery. One was a homebrewer and another a social worker. The brewers first had a microbrewery in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, which then became too small for them to truly express themselves. Thus, they moved to Brussels and opened a brewery in 2010 in a converted bread factory. Both brewers had already long thought about creating an iconic beer for Brussels city. 

After planning, the brewers agreed to brew a beer for the annual Zinneke parade in 2002. The parade is a celebration of Brussels’ cosmopolitan spirit. This is how Zinnebir was born. The two beer brewers did not have their brewery back then, so the beer was brewed in a basement.

The beer name came after the Zinneke parade and also the Senne river that flows through Brussels. The Dutch part calls the river la Zenne but also Zenneke, which means little Zenne. Sometimes even the people of Brussels are called Zinnekes. 

The brewers worked on perfecting the beer throughout the years to arrive at the flawless product that it is now. They changed the raw ingredients to achieve the perfect balance between hop, malt, spiciness and fruitiness. The brewers intended to make a beer that can be drunk a lot. Thus, the alcohol content is 5.8%. And of course, the beer is brewed in an artisanal way without any additives. 

We can now say that de la Senne brewery has accomplished its mission and Zinnebir is a beer of Brussels and the people of Brussels. The beer flavour reflects the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Brussels, but like all the ingredients, flavours and tastes of the Zinnebir, the different cultures and people of Brussels live together in a perfect balance. 

Not only has Zinnebir made its name as the beer of Brussels, but the beer and the brewery also acted as a role models for other brewers. The brewery had a huge influence on the craft beer movement in the city and many people followed their footsteps, which brought Brussels other amazing craft beer breweries like the Brussels Beer Project, No Science, Beerstorming and many others. 

Lastly, the beer is the flagship beer of the brewery and their best seller. The locals can also ask for Zinnebir in any beer bar they visit. We can confirm the Zinnebir popularity, as some of our clients even order a whole beer box of Zinnebir regularly. No one can get enough of that beer! 

What else is there to know about Zinnebir?

  • Where is Zinnebir beer brewed? 

Though the brewing process started in a basement, Zinnebir has now moved to de la Senne brewery, which is located in Brussels near the cultural space Tour & Taxis. 

  • What does the Zinnebir beer label mean?

The Zinnebir label illustrates the Brussels city skyline, the buildings and the Senne river flowing through the city with a big bright sun behind it all. The label uses warm and happy colours such as yellow and green. It gives you a feeling like Brussels is a calm, orderly city, though there can be some crazy traffic and full of vibrant events. Despite the messiness, it all still functions in harmony.

  • How to serve Zinnebir and which beer glass to use?

Zinnebir is best served in a tulip beer glass, which helps to release the exciting aromas that the beer has. The minimum serving temperature is 5 degrees celsius. 

  • What are the ingredients of Zinnebir?

The Zinnebir ingredients are water, hops, yeast, barley malt, and fermentable sugar.

  • What food goes well with Zinnebir?

Zinnebir beer goes very well with cheese platters or cheesy dishes. It is especially good with creamy cheeses like cottage cheese or goat cheese. The bitterness of the beer and the creaminess of the cheese make a perfect match. Zinnebir also goes well with seafood. 

  • What are the other beers by de la Senne brewery?

Some people argue that Zinnebir is not even the best beer in the brewery and favour the younger sister, Taras Boulba. The beer has a similar fruity and spicy taste, but more bitterness and it is an easy to drink beer with lower alcohol content. In the end, it is a question of personal taste. After all, without Zinnebir, there would not be a Taras Boulba. The brewers needed a change from Zinnebir and something lighter to drink.  

Besides Taras Boulba, the brewery also has other famous beers like the Jambe de Bois, Bruxellensis, Stouterik and Saison du Meyboom

Beer Delta Ipa 6.5% Brussels Beer Project | IPA
€57,60
Belgique Blonde Bouteille Bruxelles

Delta IPA is a Belgian IPA because the brewers use a saison yeast, a typically Belgian style of beer. It is not a usual IPA with a little bit of spiciness and thirst-quenching bitterness.

The Brussels Beer Project brewery was founded in 2013, and Delta IPA was their first beer, also created in 2013. This was back when IPA beers were not so known in Belgium. The brewery is very involved with the community, and also you can see Delta IPA reflects Brussels. Brussels is a multicultural city, so the taste of Delta IPA is reflecting different brewing cultures. 


When you first pour Delta IPA into your glass, you notice a golden body with a mix of honey and orange colours. You’ll see very few bubbles but a big white head. 


On the nose, it gives aromas of pine, citrus and tropical fruits. But, it is not a surprise that hop aromas dominate over others. 
We find in the mouth notes of lychees and passion fruit brought by hops. You can also notice the flavours of oranges, limes, and bitter notes of hop. It has a fine aftertaste with a bitter finish. Despite the strong taste, it remains a good level of acidity.

Beer Taras Boulba 4.5% Senne | Session IPA
€40,00 Regular price €50,00 Sale price
Belgique Bio Blonde Bouteille Bruxelles en stock IPA

Taras Boulba is a light lager, generously hopped with the finest aromatic hops, giving it a very refreshing character and a fragrance reminiscent of citrus. The nose offers delicate aromas of spices, malt, hops and lemon. You can even smell slight notes of cookies, caramel and a bit of vanilla. Taras Boulba has a blonde colour with white foam. In the mouth, you can feel the bitterness present. You can also taste notes of caramel and lemon. It is a beer full of character but also thirst-quenching and refreshing. The finale of the beer is dry. 

Though Taras Boulba has now become many people's favourite beer, it had a rough start. First, Taras Boulba beer was created only for the brewers and their friends. The brewers claimed that they were only drinking their other famous beer, the Zinnebir, and they needed something lighter. Thus, Taras Boulba was born. After only drinking it by themselves, the brewers decided to start selling Taras Boulba locally. The problem was that the bitter beers had not yet made their name in Belgium. Only De Ranke brewery, whose niche is bitter beers, was in the market. The brewers had to fight hard and talk a lot with local beer bars and pubs to get their beer out. Finally, their beer has not only become popular locally but also internationally. 

Like Taras Boulba, all the beers of brewery de la Senne are brewed in a traditional way: unfiltered, unpasteurized and without additives.

Taras Boulba is also the favourite beer of Beercrush creator Florian. 

 

History and origin of the Taras Boulba beer name. 

 

The name Taras Boulba refers to a novel written by Nikolai Gogol. The novel is the story of Taras Boulba, who goes with his two sons to war against the Polish. One of the sons is in love with a Polish girl. The son helps the girl get some food during the war. Once Taras finds out about this, he kills his son. The brewers use this as a reference to the struggle between Flemings and Walloons in Belgium. 

 

Want to know more about Taras Boulba beer? Here are some of the most frequently asked questions answered:

 

  • What does the Taras Boulba beer label mean?

The Taras Boulba beer label is also related to the novel by Nikolai Gogol. On the label, you can see two men in front of a circus. A father and a son. The father is angry and holding a big barrel above his head, ready to throw it at his son while yelling "Smeirlap!". There is a comment on the label in the Brussels dialect. The comment states: "Behold, Taras Boulba is furiously angry. His son has married a Walloon!" The label is an interpretation of the novel, but with a Belgian twist reflecting the complicated relationship between Walloons and Flemings.

The demand has not only become high among beer drinkers but also among collectors. People as far as the United States are trying to get their hands on a good Cantillon Gueuze. 

Now, the Gueuze Cantillon represents half of the brewery’s production. The brewers follow a thousand-year-old brewing tradition and promote the natural taste of a beer by using the best raw materials. The cereals they use are 100% organically grown.
 

The history and making of Gueuze beer

In the 18th century, a Benedictine monk discovered champagnisation by blending different non-sparkling white wines. It was just the beginning of discovery, as, during the next century, a Brabant brewer mixed several Lambics that caused fermentation in the bottle. And finally, the Gueuze was born. 

Before that, only Lambic and Faro beers were drunk in Belgium. The monk’s discovery of champagnisation and the Brabant brewers mixing of lambics started a new revolution. The Gueuze beer then became a hit. In fact, it was not the Belgians but Americans who noticed the value of a gueuze beer. Before it came back to the spotlight in Belgium, the demand was much higher in the United States. 

Creating this complex mixture of different lambics requires some work. Around ten lambics from different barrels need to be tasted to select the best half for the mixture. Young lambics that are one year old are mixed with old lambics, which are three years old. The bottles are then placed horizontally in a cellar for a second fermentation that takes about one year. Once the lambic has become sparkling, it has become a gueuze. 

Anecdote of cooking with Gueuze Cantillon beer

Proper beer lovers and geeks would call anyone mad to waste a good Cantillon Gueuze on any dish. Nevertheless, there is a whole recipe book about cooking with Cantillon beer!

You can find this book at Brussels Gueuze Museum, which is a museum dedicated to gueuze beer and established in the Cantillon brewery. 

The book called “La Gueuze Gourmande” was published in 1995 and only focuses on dishes that use Cantillon beers. There is a recipe called tête pressée that even requires two full bottles of Cantillon Gueuze. This book was made when the consumption of traditional gueuze was declining, especially during the tough times after World War II. This book intended to use the beer in recipes in a way that the unique beer flavour would not disappear. 

The recipe book may be forgotten now, but luckily the consumers have once again started to appreciate a traditional gueuze beer the way it is.

Learn more about the Gueuze Cantillon beer.

How long can you store a Gueuze Cantillon beer?

The good news is that this beer only gets better with time! In a cellar, Cantillon Gueuze can age for more than 20 years without losing any taste or aromas. 

Where is the Gueuze Cantillon brewed?

The Cantillon brewery is located in the Anderlecht neighbourhood in Brussels, Belgium. It is very close to one of the main train stations, Brussels Midi. 

How to serve the Gueuze Cantillon?

The Gueuze Cantillon can be served at 15 degrees celsius. Cantillon brewery has a dedicated beer glass for the gueuze. If you are unable to buy a Cantillon beer glass, then use any straight format beer glass to enjoy your beer.

Beer Curieuse Neus 7% Stoemelings | Blonde
€60,72
Belgique Bouteille Bruxelles

Bière Curieuse Neus offers a lower alcohol content than triples in general. It has a reddish color with banana and apricot aromas.

The beer has all the characteristics of a triple beer. The malty sides are present in the beer flavour, and you will get a nice bitter finish. The beer has a slightly cloudy appearance but a nice white foam on top. The carbonation is well balanced. You also get the aromas of cereals and spices. It is an easy to drink beer and thirst-quenching. 

Curieuse Neus is the first beer by En Stoemelings brewery. One of the brewers is an archaeologist, and another is an expert in coding. Thus, their beer came as a big surprise. The brewers started brewing secretly in a kitchen, but luckily time gave them a proper place and therefore gave us good beers!

The beer is coming from Brussels, and the brewery's slogan “Het is ça va” is a reflection of the bilingual city.

The brewing started in a private kitchen and then moved near Chapelle station in Brussels, which was not the final location for En Stoemelings brewery. Now the Curieuse Neus beer is brewed near Tour & Taxis cultural place and nearby de la Senne and La Source breweries.
