Additional information:

In 1128 the Norbertine monks decided to build an abbey near the Belgian village of Grimbergen, just outside of Belgium’s capital. In these days, it was considered normal that the monks would brew a beer for the local villagers and for the many pilgrims who sought shelter in the abbey. During the Middle Ages, the Norbertine monks built abbeys (with breweries) in many different paces in Belgium, Leffe is another such abbey that is well known to beer lovers.

At that time, the only known brewing style was top fermentation, and the preferred beer was dark, so the monks of Grimbergen brew a dark top fermentation beer: Grimbergen Double. Much later, they also started to brew a blonde beer: Grimbergen Blonde. And after that, when they found the blond beer not strong enough anymore, they came up with Grimbergen Tripel.

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.
