Kessel Blond and Kessel 69 are produced throughout the year.
The three aperitif beers are always available as well.
In addition, a seasonal beer is brewed each season: the so-called specials. In spring, we produce the Holsbeekse Lentetripel/Spring Triple; in the summer you can try our Caroussel special; and finally, you can light up your dark winters with our Xmas special.
The original location Kessel-Lo still lends its name to our two standard beers. The names of our more recent beer types are connected to the current location of the brewery or to one of the several partners we have worked with to create our unique beers.
Our aperitif beers (Gulden Delle - Ferme Framboos and Brut) are a nod to vine culture, similar to what medium dry, rosé and brut are for sparkling wine, cava or champagne.

Smokin’ Elder is exclusively brewed on demand of and for Dranken Jeroen.
Jeroen started at the same time as the brewery, in 2008. Being real fanatical beer lovers Jeroen and his father Rudy are also ardent whisky lovers. During a delivery from the brewery to the off-licence the idea developed to create a whiskybeer, exclusively for the off-licence. After many trial concoctions and tastings the choice fell upon this unfiltered straw yellow blond beer with its typical turfaroma, a robust bitterness from a great quantity of Saaz hops and a fresh aftertaste from juniper berries.
Brut is De Vlier’s festive beer. Perfect as an aperitif and on festive occasions. This beer has lovely fresh acidity through a complex fermentation process.

Two local products unite to create this unique aperitif beer! De Ferme Framboos is a farm in Sint-Agatha Rode that produces juice from its own ecologically grown raspberries, which gives this beer its distinctive flavour and colour consistency.
