The perfect serve

The same care and precision that has gone into every Grimbergen since 1128 should go into the art of perfectly serving and pouring the beer as well.

The chalice actually makes a difference

It all starts with the perfect glass. That is why we have developed our Grimbergen chalice. Crafted in the perfect way, to let the beer release its indulging aromas and amplify the sensoriality. Its rounded shape helps enhance the bubbles and gives the foam more stability and smoothness.

How to pour a beer

And now for the actual serve.
Hold the glass at base, and tilt to a 45-degree angle while pouring from the bottle.
Fill halfway and in a smooth but determined motion straighten the glass.
If done to perfection there should be a layer of foam two fingers thick.
One last thing - a perfect beer is always served chilled.
We don’t say you can taste the difference, we guarantee it.

The perfect serve ritual

The glass should be clean, cool and dry.
Hold your glass base at a 45-degree angle.
Fill it to 50%
Straighten to 90 degrees
The foam should be 20 mm high
Perfectly serve at 8 degree celsius.
