by HobbyBrouwerij Het Nest

Hobbybrouwerij Het Nest has its origins in a beer club formed by eight friends from the city of Turnhout in Northern Belgium.  With their increasing interest, they undertook brewing courses and produced their first commercial beer on a 500L system.  Now they contract brew at one of Belgiums larger family breweries. 

Hertenheer (which translates as ‘Dear Lord’) is a dark blond beer.  A subdued nose hints at malt plus grassy hops.  The beer is described on the label as ‘Blond and Bitter’, and that’s pretty much what you get.  A nice crisp Belgian pale ale with a good hop bite and pleasant lingering spicy bitterness.

Why the Cards?: the city of Turnhout is known for its playing cards, being home to the head office of the worlds largest manufacturer.  All being proud residents of the city, they adopted playing cards as the theme to all their beers.
