Farm Table: Patersbier

Beau’s Farm Table Series are sessionable beers inspired by tradition and brewed true to a classic style. Patersbier is a refreshing Belgian-style ale, both bright and cloudy at once. This subtly sweet and floral beer makes a great companion to a spring afternoon in the backyard; or for a summer evening as the sun sets and the ninth inning wraps up.

History & Style

Milder than a dubbel or tripel, Patersbier (“Father’s beer”) was traditionally brewed by Trappist monks to enjoy within the walls of their abbey, while they worked away at brewing their famous strong ales. The monks had it right. Patersbier is a thirst-quenching session beer to savour through the warmer months.

Tasting Notes

Pours a slightly hazy blond with dense, rocky white foam. Sweet honeyed malt with floral overtones dominate the aroma. The flavour features initial malt sweetness. Peppery notes from the yeast lend complexity while hop bitterness provides balance. The finish is bright, clean and crisp.

Food Pairings

Hot & sour soup with chicken and tofu; chicken braised with Patersbier, grain mustard & herbs with spaetzle; Nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice); bloomy rind brie-style cheeses.
