Note from producer: The Straffe Hendrik family consist of a golden tripel, a brown quadrupel and the limited editions of Heritage and Wild. All beers have a high alcohol percentage and are rich in flavours and taste. They are strongly hopped and brewed with a subtle mixture of different kinds of malt of the highest quality. The taste of the beers evolves as the years go by.

Straffe Hendrik Tripel is a golden triple with a sturdy white collar. The armona is spicy with hints of black pepper, coriander and ginger, and is even insinuating the presence of oranges.

The beer is brewed with a selection of Saaz and Styrian hops of a very high quality. The subtle blend of six special varieties of malt gives the beer a well-balanced and powerful taste. The palate initiates a hint of caramel, soon flowing into a certain bitterness. In the finish one can discover citrus fruits and even subtle flavours of banana. The triple has an alcohol percentage of 9° and the refermentatation in the bottle generates a long natural shelf life. The combination with zesty fish plates is a real treat, but Straffe Hendrik can also be paired with cheeses such as camembert or Brugse Blomme. Straffe Hendrik is know to be a real delicay when combined with desserts based on pineapple or mango as well.

In 1981 the city of Bruges revealed a work of art to honor the paitron saint of the berwers. The mayor had a special assignement for brewer Henri Maes IV and his daughter Véronique. He asked them to brew a new beer to serve at the inauguration of the statue of Saint Arnold.

The beer was highly appreciated and soon became an established product in the brewery. The name Straffe Hendrik translates as Strong Henri and was chosen because of the numerous strong Hendris in the family.

In the late 1980s the brand was acquired by another brewery, but in 2008 Xavier Vanneste was able to bring the lost son back home. Today Straffe Hendrik is the last authentic tiple beer brewed in the city of Bruges.
