Cherry… kriek… cerise… no matter how you say it, cherry beer is a popular flavor in beer.
Mouth puckering cherry popping bright and tart, or rich and candied sweet, cherries in beer is varied and popular.
I recently had a customer asking for a list of what cherry beers we have in stock so instead of compiling and emailing the cherry beer list to a single person, I decided to share it with everyone.
Our stock of cherry beer (and everything else!) at the Bevie is always changing, many of these are seasonals, one-offs, special orders, etc. and new, different cherry brews will be rolling through our store as time goes by.

Duchessic Ale – A blend of Cantillon Lambic and Duchessa Saison
Saison / Farmhouse Ale | 5.3% ABV
$10.99 | 375ml
This will ONLY be sold at the January 22nd, 2016 tasting at the Beverage Warehouse. First come, first served. 1 per person.
A sort of “collaboration brew” with the famous Belgian brewery Brasserie Cantillon: an interesting experiment about spontaneous fermentations. The traditional Duchessa – spelt beer – has been cut with a 20% of one year old lambic from Brasserie Cantillon. The result is a unique beer that extraordinarily merges the lambic sharp and sour characteristics with the gentle notes of Duchessa. A real gem not to be missed, as the former version’s great success confirms.
Beersel Mattina – 3 Fonteinen Lambic Multi-year Lambic / Saison blend | 6.2% ABV
$29.99 | 750ml
Incredible Flavor & Incredibly Limited!
This beer drips with refinement and elegance. One of the best Lambic’s you’ve never heard of!
A blend of New Morning and 18 month aged 3 Fonteinen Lambic refined for at least 12 months in bottle. Gorgeous citrus nose with hints of dried flowers and honey. Lasting and sapid in the mouth with a sour finish that always makes the lovers of this blend smile.
This beer could very well make you develop an addiction for spontaneous fermentation and turn your entire world upside down!
After a mechanical breakdown, 3 Fonteinen Brewery of Beersel (possibly the best Lambic blender in the world) had economic damage in the summer of 2009. The news caused such a stir in the International beer movement that I called Armand to know how things were. As he needed to sell his Lambic, I immediately got inspired to blend our New Morning with his beer. We selected three 18 month old Lambic barrels that we siphoned in a small tank on our truck. The journey back was long and hard, myself and Manuel took turns driving through Belgium, France and Italy only stopping for gas. After days hand bottling and months of maturation, the outcome has gone over and beyond our expectations and we can say with pride that it was worth it!
