A very big (but not the biggest) bottle of Chimay's Grand Reserve - these 1.5 L Magnums come in delightful silk-printed bottles. The Grande Reserve also known as Chimay Blue is their strongest brew at 9% and although originally designed as a winter special has become a pillar of their range and is now drunk throughout the year. Complex, spicy rich in aroma and pairing well with cheese, this Magnum will make a classic finish to any meal. Please note:- Both the 2015 and 2016 vintage are available and therefore bottle design may vary from image shown. BBE dates are 2019 and 2020 respectively
You can always rely on monks to made a great beer, and those at Chimay are no exception. Brewing since 1862, they use fresh water from abbey land and a natural top-fermentation process followed by refermentation in the bottle.
The Chimay beer produced today uses a unique yeast strain selected by Father Theodore in 1948 - giving the beer its own special character and aroma. Our particular favourite is Chimay Blue, which can be aged like a fine wine thanks to its classic bottle-conditioning. Like all Trappist beer, the majority of revenue goes to support charitable projects - what a great use of brewing.
