St. Martin Arrives In Georgia, Meet The Brewer

Brasserie De Brunehaut (Brunehaut, Belgium) is making it’s first appearance in Atlanta this week.  Brunehaut was founded in 1890 and brewed continuously for 100 years until 1990 when the brewery relocated to it’s new facility with modern brewing equipment.

Brunehaut is best know for their St. Martin line of Abbey beers.  These beers are the ones making the debut.  St. Martin brand lineup:

Blonde — Belgian Strong Pale, 7%.  Bananas, citrus, candi sugar, spicy & complex

Dark — Dubbel, 8%.  Dark fruits, roasted malts, chocolate & molasses.

Triple — 9%.  Strong carbonation, bready, w/ hint of Belgian yeast. Light fruits.

Cuvee de Noel — Belgian Strong Dark, 8.5%.  Seasonal release, winter. Coming soon.

The brewery has 2 other lines of beers – Brunehaut, & a regional series. Only the St. Martin lineup makes it stateside (according to Abbey representative.)

Tonight at Ormsby’s, Marc-Antoine De Mees of Brunehaut will host a special launch event at 7pm.  Tickets are $20, which includes all three launch beers, and appetizers.   Call Ormsby’s for tickets.
