A combination of the traditional English style India Pale Ale and the Belgian tripel, Houblon Chouffe uses a trans-Atlantic combination of three hop varieties to produce a purposefully bitter brew.

Top fermented and bottle conditioned, it pours a pale golden with a thick white head. The hop aroma is powerful, but so are notes of citrus, grapefruit, honey and malt.

All these complement a flavor profile that balances initial sweetness with the final hop bitterness. The finish is dry with a surprising 9.0 % ABV.


Named for Achouffe, the village where it began or (depending on the storyteller) for a colony of beer-brewing gnomes reputed to have once lived in the area, the D'Achouffe Brewery ("Chouffe" translates to "gnome" in the Walloon dialect) was founded in the late 1970s by brothers-in-law Pierre Gobron and Chris Bauweraerts, first as a hobby, and then as a full time venture.

Nestled in the green hills of the Belgian Ardennes, the brewery released its first ale to high acclaim in 1982 and has flourished ever since. A meticulous attention to quality, a tried and true application of brewer's savvy and innovation, and an irrepressible talent for promotion (the popular gnomes appear on every label) helped propel the brewery to its current success.

Today D'Achouffe exports award-winning ales to over 40 countries around the world and hosts more than 10,000 thirsty brewery visitors each year.
