Book St.Bernardus

Book St.Bernardus

We're celebrating the 75th anniversary of our brewery with the release of a brand new book!

The book offers you a unique look behind the scenes of St.Bernardus: from the rich history to the brewing process and the recently renovated visitor centre. In addition, you will be served various (inter)national recipes and cocktails by various top and starred chefs, in which our beers play the leading role.

That's no less than 192 pages of pure reading pleasure! Taste the story of St.Bernardus!

Now available in our webshop through link below.

St.Bernardus Wit in can

St.Bernardus Wit in can

St.Bernardus Wit is now also available in cans!

Sales manager Marco Passarella: “A little over a year ago, we launched our first beer in a can (St. Bernardus Tokyo) and we're now adding a second name to the range. St. Bernardus Wit has been on the market for quite some time, but we felt that we could no longer ignore international demand to make this beer available in cans."

A can is also a good idea for a refreshing and thirst-quenching beer as Wit, which you should drink young and ‘fresh’ (i.e., this is not a beer for storing or cellaring). If you want to cellar your beer, you should stick with bottled beers. Our cans have a shelf life of 18 months.

Finally, cans are less heavy and can be fully recycled, which in turn has a positive sustainable environmental impact. Moreover, the can offers more protection against light exposure, which is better for the beer.

Magnum 2021

In 2012 we decided to start producing a limited number of magnums (bottles containing 1.5 litres of beer). Each year, our Abt 12 is bottled in a special dark brown St.Bernardus magnum, featuring the brewery’s logo in relief, a ‘Bière Belge’ neck, a personalised cork and a unique muselet, and we ask a different artist to design the label. Artists whose work has graced past labels include Rik Vermeersch, Christian Silvain, Kamagurka and André Van Schuylenbergh.

For the magnum edition of 2021, for the first time in the series, a photo features as the center piece on the label.

The universe of narrative photographer Bart Ramakers is an artistic rendition of traditional themes taken from the classical arts, theatre, myths and literature. His multi-layered oeuvre bears witness to his training as a draughtsman and historian. In addition to surrealism, he also derives his inspiration from Caravaggio, whose Baroque chiaroscuro signature is clearly recognisable in the scene that Ramakers created for Panamarenko’s photograph Around The World in 80 Years, which would unintentionally become his last. At the end of 2019, a host of Flemish celebrities gathered at Panamarenko’s home to promote his ‘Jules Verne’ exhibition through a number of images inspired by the work of this famous author. Ironically, two days later Panamarenko would depart for his last and longest journey ever. Besides Panamarenko and his wife Eveline Hoorens, you will also recognise Rob Vanoudenhoven, Mark Uytterhoeven, Guy Mortier, Stijn Meuris and Bart Persoons.

Abt 12 Day 2020 - Livestream

We'll be celebrating Abt 12 Day again! Since it will be a bit more difficult this year to get together with your friends, family or colleagues and enjoy our Heavenly Nectar, we're organising a Livestream on Saturday, December 12, 2020 at 08.00 PM CET.

What's on the menu?

We'll go deeper into the history of the brewery and do a vertical tasting (don't worry, we'll then explain exactly what this means) of different vintages of our Abt 12, we'll shine our light on our anniversary year '75 years of St.Bernardus in 2021', the chef of our rooftop tasting room Bar Bernard will be preparing the favorite national dish of Belgium "Stew with Abt 12", etc.

If you have any questions that you would like to ask us during this Livestream? Feel free to forward them in advance to marketing@sintbernardus.be.

Keep an eye on our social media pages for further details! And make sure your fridge is stocked with some St.Bernardus Abt 12, preferably you should also have our glassware handy ;-)

Follow the livestream on our Facebook and YouTube channel!

St.Bernardus Day 2020

St.Bernardus Tokyo

St.Bernardus Tokyo Sounds familiar? You are quite right, because in 2012 we launched a one-off brew on the occasion of the opening of the first St.Bernardus-themed café in the Japanese capital. Eight years later, you can sample our St.Bernardus Tokyo again, albeit with a new recipe!

The young Belgian illustrator Jonas Devacht created the artwork for the can, which consists of an impression of Japanese nightlife in the iconic streets of Kanda district, where you can find ‘Brasserie St.Bernardus’.

St.Bernardus Tokyo (6% ABV) is an unfiltered, golden ale, which has been brewed with a large amount of wheat, holding the middle between a white beer and a saison. It’s topped off with an impressive white collar.

Magnum 2020

In 2012 we decided to start producing a limited number of magnums (bottles containing 1.5 litres of beer). Each year, our Abt 12 is bottled in a special dark brown St.Bernardus magnum, featuring the brewery’s logo in relief, a ‘Bière Belge’ neck, a personalised cork and a unique muselet, and we ask a different artist to design the label. Artists whose work has graced past labels include Rik Vermeersch, Christian Silvain, Kamagurka and André Van Schuylenbergh.

The 2020 Magnum Edition features a work of the Belgian visual artist Christophe Malfliet. Christophe Malfliet, born in 1966, lives and works in Dendermonde. He paints in series, mainly figurative, abstract or in interaction. With a uniform plasticity, it is invariably recognizable because of its style, the tousled color combinations, the strange atmosphere and the unlined lines. He always manages to inspire his paintings with a rebellious undertone, how innocent the scene may look.

Note well: this is a limited edition!

Gold medal - BBC 2019

Just like in 2018, St.Bernardus Tripel came out as the best (Belgian Style) Tripel at the Brussels Beer Challenge. The BBC is an annual international beer competition, in which the contestants vie for the title of ‘best beer’. Every beer entered into the competition by the participating breweries is carefully tasted and tested by a jury of 80 beer connoisseurs from all over the world. It goes without saying that we are extremely proud of this acknowledgement! St.Bernardus Tripel is a traditional abbey beer, brewed in the classic ‘Tripel’ style.

World Beer Awards 2019

The annual World Beer Awards are among the most prestigious beer prizes in the world, the 'Olympic Games of the beer world'. For the first time in years our brewery participated in the World Beer Awards. We registered 4 of our beers, which earned us no less than 5 medals.

Abt 12 won gold in the 'Belgian Style Strong' category and our St.Bernardus Wit was awarded a silver medal in the 'Belgian Style Witbier' category.

Prior 8 and Tripel are Country Winners (one step higher than the gold medal) in their respective 'Belgian Style Double' and 'Belgian Style Triple’ categories. Our Prior 8 and Tripel can now be called the best ‘Dubbel’ and ‘Tripel’ in Belgium for one year. At the end of last year, St.Bernardus Tripel also won the gold medal at the Brussels Beer Challenge for best 'Belgian Style' Tripel.

And it’s not all, on top of that the Prior 8 received the highest distinction in its category, namely ‘World's Best Dark Belgian Style Dubbel'. Prior 8 not only became a Country Winner, but also a 'Style Winner' worldwide, in other words, the world’s best ‘Dubbel’ beer! This also means that the Prior 8 can get even further this fall, since it will compete for the title of 'World's Best Dark Beer'. The results will be announced in September.
