Straffe Hendrik Quadruple is a rich and intense dark beer of high fermentation. It is brewed using a subtle mixture of special malts, which give the beer an extremely dark colour and a complex full malt. character.
The Straffe Hendrik was originally brewed by De Halve Maan brewery in Bruges. At the request of the then mayor, Henri Maes and his daughter Véronique brewed a slightly stronger blond beer in 1981 for the inauguration of the statue of Saint Arnold, the patron saint of brewers. However, it was so appreciated that it was asked again. It was appropriately named Straffe Hendrik, as the beer was stronger and well hopped.
