De Brabandere Brewery uses foeders (large oak barrels) to age the mother beer, Petrus Aged Pale. Since its founding in 1894 this beer has been used for blending into other recipes to provide a fresh, slightly tart flavor and a complex aroma.

The three beers in the Petrus Fruited Ale Pack are blends of this magical mother beer and some of the brewers' favorite fruit flavors. Petrus Aged Pale's tart notes and citrusy flavors enhance the essence of the blended fruit, resulting in a smooth mouthfeel. All three are 5% ABV.

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.
