Filou (ABV 8.5%) is a strong blond top-fermented beer from the Van Honsebrouck Brewery. Subtle herbal aromas and a slightly sweet palette of flavors catapult it to the world of tripels. The re-fermentation in the bottle and the use of carefully selected Belgian and Czech aromatic hops results in a pleasantly soft and accessible beer. Finally, Filou ("Rascal") treats you to a sublime bitter aftertaste and gives you a playful wink, inviting you to take another sip. 16.9 oz can.

"Filou is straightforward, with a soft taste and subtle bitterness: a highly accessible beer that celebrates life's small victories."

-- Xavier Van Honsebrouck, CEO and seventh-generation Van Honsebrouck brewer

The Van Honsebrouck Brewery (makers of Filou) began as a small farm and brewery on the outskirts of Ingelmunster in the West Flanders region of Belgium.

Purchased in 1900 by husband and wife Emile and Ludovica Van Honsebrouck and expanded in the 1930s by their two sons, major success would elude the brew farm until the 1950s when grandson Luc Van Honsebrouck took over the business.

Educated at the brewing schools of Ghent and then gaining practical experience at a large German brewery, Luc would change the direction of the family business by breaking with tradition and concentrating on the production of high quality specialty beers. His vision proved fortunate, and made him a legend in the craft brew industry.

Today the Van Honsebrouck Brewery – still family owned and operated – distributes its specialty ales to at least two dozen countries including the United States, Canada, China, Italy, Brazil and Japan.
