Additional information:

The Abbey of Grimbergen was founded in 1128 in a village in the centre of Belgium. The Norbertine monks who resided there, started brewing a dark top fermentation beer to drink themselves, but also to serve to the many pilgrims who passed by the abbey. That beer was the basis for what we know now as Grimbergen Double, or ‘Grimbergen Dubbel’ in Flemish. During the French Revolution, both the abbey and the brewery were abolished.

The abbey was later re-instated, but the brewing tradition remained dead until in 1958, brewery Alken-Maes contacted the monks and agreed with them to brew their beers under license and with respect of the ancient traditions and recipes. Besides Grimbergen Double, this deal also involved the abbey’s two other beers at the time: Grimbergen Blonde and Grimbergen Triple.

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.
