A premium Belgian beer packaging design inspired by the historic monastery and beer culture in Belgium.
"Produced in the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant, this trappist beer dates back to the 15th century. It was originally brewed and distributed by the monks to raise funds to support the local monastery and it’s community programs.
The province was famous for its distinctive type of hop plants which grew on the fields that surround the monastery. These hops have a unique taste and aroma which, to this day, still can’t be found anywhere else in Europe, and therefore gave its name to the beer it produces.
The Brabant monks are letting the beer leave their province and now it is your turn to taste!
The Hopper bottle is an immediate reminder of this distinctive history. Pointy neck label created the negative space of the church window with the golden light through that relates to the beer brewed in the monastery."
