Meet our Private Bar… As of December 2012 you can also go to The Private Bar at Brasserie Appelmans for a drink on Fridays and Saturdays. This bar, in typical “Speakeasy-style”, is located on the 2nd mezzanine, hidden behind solid wood doors and a rotating bookcase. The bar, designed by architect Kurt Herreygers of Not Before Ten, was created with attention to detail. Owners Kasper Stuart and Danyelle van Thoor have opted for a more rustic style in stark contrast to the cosmopolitan Absinthbar. One can, after all, sit down in one of the classic upholstered seats or a large leather sofa, as nicely finished as the inside of

the doors. Immediately striking are the numerous wooden pharmacists’ cupboards that span the entire width. In combination with the huge chandeliers from deer antlers, this makes for a soothing effect. With the additional capacity of the Private Bar we meet the high demand of the public, which is only too happy to gravitate towards the Papenstraatje to stretch out and enjoy some aperitifs, start off the evening or try one of the many cocktails. In short: those looking for a place to escape the crowds and enjoy a drink in good company, have come to the right place! |7|

the beer of the phoenix


A tAste As rich As its history GriMBerGeN BLoNDe (6,7°) With a slightly fruity flavour, Grimbergen Blonde offers you a great balance between sweetness and bitterness. Its full, round flavour makes it a highly popular beer.

GriMBerGeN DoUBLe (6,5°) This beer, with a dark red colour close to that of a Burgundy, has a very full bittersweet taste with a subtle hint of caramel. This makes it a generous double-fermented beer.

GriMBerGeN GoLD (8°) Grimbergen Gold 8° is a strong blonde beer full of character thanks to aromatic hops, refermented in the bottle and yet very accessible.

GriMBerGeN triPLe (9°) A beer with a deep ochre colour and a generous, full-bodied, bittersweet taste. Its typical “triple” flavour comes from light brown sugar and a subtle mixture of sweet and bitter hops.

GriMBerGeN oPtiMo BrUNo (10°) This dark amber beer has a flavour that is both sweet and bitter, and exceptionally round, with a powerful, alcoholic finish due to its substantial density. Double fermentation gives it a perfect balance between hops and malt.
