Petrus Oud Bruin (Rood Bruin) is an award winning sour ale aged in oak for up to 20 months before bottling.

A blend of an already sour and matured "mother beer" with a younger, sweeter counterpart, the brew pours a deep red with a moderate tan head and an ABV of 5.5%.

Aromas of caramel sugar, sour cherries and grapes with wood notes and malt herald a flavor profile that charts a similar course and balances perfectly between the sweet and the sour. The finish is dry with a touch of fruit.

Food Pairings

Excellent for marinating fish or meat. Pair with richer meat dishes or heavy pasta dishes where the light sourness of the beer offsets the sweetness of the sauce.

Pair with the following cheeses: Blue Cheese, Camembert, Cheddar, Fontina, Mimolette.

De Brabandere Brewery was founded by Adolphe De Brabandere in 1894 as a farm brewery in Bavikhove in the West Flanders region of Belgium. The early years saw the brewery selling mainly table beers and drafts to local clients and cafes, but by 1950, De Brabandere had built much wider distribution due to the appeal of their flavorful brews.

In the 1970s the brewery introduced the beer that would launch a brand and become its flagship, Petrus Oud Bruin, a sour ale whose brew process included years aging in oak barrels.

Passed from father to son, today, a fifth generation still oversees daily operations, and the company remains one of the largest independent breweries in Belgium.
