Additional information:

When the Trappist monks in the Abbey of Scourmont brewed for the very first time in 1862, this was the beer they brewed. That is also where this beer got its name ‘Premiere’ means ‘first’. During the first 80 years, the flavor of the beers evolved continuously. But in 1948, Father Theodore succeeded in isolating the unique yeast strain that has since been used for all Chimay beers. Thanks to this yeast strain this beer has had the same flavor for about 65 years. This beer is also available in 33cl bottles, where it is simply called Chimay Red or Chimay Rouge.

All beers are shipped in professional, DHL-approved, triple-walled cardboard boxes, where all bottles are separated from each other to prevent them from hitting against each other during transport
First of all, you should bear in mind that during transport the bottles might have been thrown around quite a bit and that it’s not a good idea to drink them immediately. We advise you to let the bottles rest in an upright position in a dark and cool place for at least 48 hours. This will allow the yeast to sink to the bottom of the bottle again, and it will also prevent an outburst of foam when you open them. Beers are best kept in an upright position (to make sure the yeast residue remains at the bottom) and in a dark and cool a cool place. (The ideal temperature is 10-12°C (50-55°F) and it is also important the temperature remains as stable as possible.) It is best to drink all beers before the expiry date mentioned on the bottle.  Some brewers, however, mention the bottling date rather than the expiry date on their bottles.
