COMING SOON: A WEBSITE DEDICATED TO ALL THINGS UNIBROUE BY BELGIAN BEER JOURNAL

BELGIAN BEER JOURNAL ANNOUNCES PLANNED UNIBROUE WEBSITE

For immediate release – April 22, 2018

Greetings everyone!

I would like to take this opportunity to formally announce our plans to create a website dedicated to all things Unibroue! There will be “UNIBROUE” link in our main header link bar at our home page promoting it when finished. This website project will take at least 90-120 days to fully complete, due to the amount of BrewViews yet to be published for it.

We will compile all existing BrewViews, Brewery of the Month, and Brewery Spotlight features at Belgian Beer Journal.

The BrewViews that still need to be published are:

BLANCHE DE CHAMBLY
MAUDITE
TROIS PISTOLES
EPHEMERE POMME
VERTICAL TASTING OF DIFFERENT VINTAGES OF 17 GRANDE RESERVE
25TH ANNIVERSAIRE – BLACK FOREST
LA FIN DU MONDE – TEQUILA BARREL AGED
EPHEMERE FRAMBOISE
EPHEMERE CERISE
EAU BENITE
SEIGNEURIALE
1837
QUELQUE CHOSE
FRAISE ET RHUBARBE
VERHAEGHE & UNIBROUE COMPILATION (WHEN AVAILABLE IN 2019)

We are also looking to get an updated interview with Master Brewer of Unibroue, Jerry Vietz. Out first interviews with him were back in December 2014 in tandem with our special 2014 CHRISTMAS BREWVIEW HIGHLIGHT: UNIBROUE’S ÉPHÉMÈRE CRANBERRY.

Stay tuned- this is going to be our biggest and most special project to date!

Santé!

AUGUST 21, 2017: BREWERY SPOTLIGHT ON UNIBROUE – CHAMBLY, (QUÉBEC) CANADA

Depending on how long one has followed Belgian Beer Journal and its history these past 4 years, most readers will note that is has been 8 months since we have written a BrewView on any Unibroue beer.

Since that time, we have debated (and re-debated over and over) which Unibroue beers should have a new BrewView on them? Do we write about more of the classics available in our market (which there are still 3 that richly deserve one), plus two more to try and obtain that are not immediately available to us? Or, do we wait as new releases make themselves available?
