Discover the unique taste of Tipsy

Tipsy surprises the tongue with its deeply penetrating sour flavor, obtained through its maturity. Once the acid storm settles down, a slightly sweet sun shines provides a refreshing finish. This beautiful combination creates a balance that quenches the thirst and tastes for more.

Refreshing
Tipsy is a full-bodied beer with a fresh, sour taste and a pleasant soft finish.

Refermentation in bottle
Tipsy beer is a dark special beer of high fermentation with refermentation in the bottle.

Taste in balance

Foodpairing
The Tipsy beer has a wide flavor variation, going from sour to sweet, which makes it an ideal partner with different dishes.

Our Story

The story of Tipsy beer begins with the two brothers Jan and Jozef Hermans. Their father was a baker and had a very busy life. Jan helped his father with the bakery and he was in charge of distributing the breads.

A friend of Jan’s, who later became the brewer of the Maes beer, suggested that during the baker’s round, they not only distribute bread, but also visit the Maes beer customers and deliver the ordered beer.

Jan accepted this proposal and from this moment the ambition to brew his own beer grew. His brother Joseph didn’t need much convincing to participate in the project.

Together, the brothers founded a brewery called Brasserie Hermans Frères. The brewery was nicknamed St.-Anna, in reference to the St.-Annendael cloister that was located across the street.

Joseph was in charge of brewing the beer and John was in charge of distribution. He went around cafes bringing the beer to the customers.

Almost a century later, Joey and Marc Hermans are bringing Tipsy beer back to life!

They work with guest brewery BeerSelect who ensures that the beer is brewed with quality.

Partners

Jos Hermans

Founder of Tipsy beer

Jos Hermans is the driving force behind Tipsy beer, as he was the first to bring it to market.

Jos was also a pigeon fancier, both nationally and internationally, his pigeons were sold as far away as Japan!

Jo Hermans

Patron of the Tipsy recipe

Jo passed on the Tipsy beer recipe to his sons Joey and Marc.

In addition to his passion for beer, he was also a passionate horseman, winning numerous jumpings in his youth. However, he had to stop the competition after an accident with his truck. He did remain active in the horse world.
Thus, he focused on horse trading and coaching young talented riders.

Mortselse kibbeling from STELOY

The team at STELOY, Mortsel’s fourth generation of fishmongers, still bakes typical fish snacks: the Mortsel kibbeling. We put these delicious fried pieces of cod and haddock in a Tipsy outfit. The top-fermented specialty beer provides the fresh, sour taste and a pleasant aftertaste; the fish appetizers create a salty flavor harmony. A fish snack to delight winter and summer!
