#DPBC Belgian Dubbel
Devil’s Peak Brewing Company is very proud to announce the release of our Belgian Dubbel!
#DPBC head brewer JC Steyn worked in collaboration with Castle Malting’s Julian Slabbinck to create this stunning Trappist-style beer – available exclusively at The Taproom and Beerguevara. This is the second Belgian beer in the #DPBC lineup, with our Silvertree Saison already well established in the South African craft beer scene.
“Julian decided that an infusion of liquorice and cinnamon would complement this rich, complex style. The notes are subtle, but they add a little something extra we’re sure fans will appreciate. He has created a fantastic recipe,” said JC.
“It was a great day brewing an awesome beer at Beerguevara. We’d like to thank them for hosting us and providing ingredients!”
