Ridgefield, CT – Rodenbach Brewery, makers of world class renowned sour beers in the traditional Flanders red style, today announced a limited edition release of its legendary Alexander beer, available only in the United States beginning in April 2016.
Rodenbach Alexander is a blend of 2/3rd aged Rodenbach (2 year matured beer from oak standing Foeders) and 1/3rd young ale, then macerated with sour cherries. With an ABV of 5.6%, Rodenbach Alexander is offered in draught one-way kegs and 750ML bottles, adorned with the image of Alexander Rodenbach, one of the brewery’s founding brothers.
“We were inspired to brew Rodenbach Alexander over two years ago, due in large part to the popular requests among beer connoisseurs, bar owners and beer lovers throughout the United States,” said Rudi Ghequire, master brewer of Rodenbach brewery. “Rodenbach Alexander pays homage to one of our original founders, rewards our loyal customers and simultaneously allows a new generation of craft beer lovers to try our beers.”
