Fruit beer alert!
Global Beer Network Introduces petrus aged red ale
New Fruit Beer Offers the Perfect Blend of Real Cherries with a Sour Bite and Generous Alcohol!!!


Middleton, Mass. – (May 1, 2013) – Global Beer Network, the exclusive U.S. importer for more than 60 Belgian beer labels, is introducing Petrus Aged Red Ale to its beer portfolio. This brew is created by combining award-winning Petrus Aged Pale sour ale, known as the “mother beer,” with a dark, sweet double ale and fresh cherries. With an 8.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), this brew is a refreshing addition to the world of fruit beers.

“Petrus Aged Red is incredibly unique with a supremely invigorating taste,” said Steve Villani, president, Global Beer Network. “Petrus Aged Pale Ale has a passionate fan following. When you blend in cherries and amp up the alcohol, the result is a beer with a slightly sour bite blanketed by a light fruit flavor that is balanced through the oak barrel aging.”

Brewed at Belgium’s Bavik Brewery and imported by Global Beer Network, Petrus Aged Red Ale is available both on tap and in bottles across the U.S. Petrus Aged Red is available at retail outlets for a suggested retail price of $12.99 for a 750 ML bottle or $15.99 for a four-pack of 11.2 oz. bottles.

Details on Petrus Red Ale include:

  • Country of origin:     Belgium
  • Alcohol by volume: 8.5%
  • Color (SRM):             Ruby Red
  • Yeast type:    Top-fermenting
  • Bitterness:    12 IBU

Fruit beers in various forms have been brewed in Belgium for hundreds of years. Petrus Aged Red is perfect to drink by itself as an aperitif, and combines beautifully with barbeque dishes or with fruit-based desserts.

Since 1894, Belgium’s Bavik Brewery has produced some of the world’s leading beers, including Wittekerke and Petrus Aged Pale. Today, Bavik Brewery is one of the largest independent breweries in Belgium and is a fourth-generation family-run organization.
