Beer nerd facts
Oud Bruin, or Flanders Brown, style of beer is a blend of aged ale and fresher younger ale. Unlike it’s close relative Flanders Red, Flanders brown is typically aged in stainless tanks and the old ale gains acidity over time from souring cultures added while fresh ale revitalizes the beer during blending. Staveyard took the opposite approach, where the aged stock ale component added a pleasant oxidative character of honey and oak, while the acidity was imparted through batch souring of the young ale portion before primary fermentation.
