Brewed in Herberg ‘De Zwarte Ruiter’ (Tavern ‘The Black Night’) in Gulpen, the beer of the same name is the only real medieval beer in the Netherlands. Mestreechs Aajt ripens in heay oak barrels to become a dark delicious fresh beer with an apple-like scent.

The name for the IJsbock beer comes from a special brewing technique where after fermentation, the beer is cooled to minus 20 degrees celsius. The water freezes while the alcohol and aroma are of the beer stay conserved. This technique results in an intensely powerful beer with sweet tones.
