Dark Lager is the third experimentation “laboratoire d’alchimie” from Nanobrasserie de l’Ermitage (Brussels), based on a low fermentation using roasted malts.
Nanobrasserie de l’Ermitage, based next to Cantillon and Brussels South train station, is the project of Nacim, Henri and François. Three friends who started home-brewing while studying in Flagey (still Brussels). The core range is built around hoppy and light beers like Lanterne (pale ale), Noire du Midi (hoppy porter) or Théorème de l’Empereur (jasmin tea pale ale) but the brewery is very active and has new creation every month. Make sure to visit the place, to enjoy a local taproom or having a glimpse to the brewer’s room.
