Ichtegem’s Oud Bruin, released in 1982, is a red-brown beer of Western Flanders. The beer is brewed according to the traditional method with different malt types. You will discover a sour nose, sweet taste and a slight sour aftertaste, created by blending sour beer with sweet young beer before bottling. Ichtegem’s Oud Bruin pairs excellently with shrimp.
In the heart of Western Flanders, not far away from the busy traffic route Roeselare-Oostende, you will find the peaceful town of Ichtegem. Historically three breweries were present on its territory, today only one brewery is still operational. Situated in the shadow of the 17th century St-Michel’s Church, the traditional Strubbe Brewery is as old as Belgium itself.
