Global & Press release Sour’ire de Mortagne @ Rose Red, Brugge
Alvinne has always been a creative brewery. We have a large portfolio and one could say we launch at least one new beer every season. We usually don’t make a big fuss about it, but this time there’s a good reason to do so.
A noble tribute to the Morpheus yeast. It all started 10 years ago!
Long before the hype had started to find new beer yeast cultures, Marc De Keukeleire, better known as “the Yeast Whisperer” captured his Morpheus yeast in the French Auvergne area. With an enormous amount of patience and passion, he selected the best yeasts and a lacto that were already present in the wild mix. The Morpheus yeast culture has become the ideal partner for Alvinne to produce mixed fermentation beers like the Old Flemish Brown style. Today, all our beers are brewed now with this famous strain, also the non-sour ones.
Being an innovator, we took that old style and stretched it into all possible directions. Alvinne expanded the old Flemish Brown style towards Flemish Sours Ales and made a style on their own, not limited anymore towards anything but mixed fermentation with Morpheus yeast and brewed in the historical area of the great mixed fermentation beers. Our mission: brewing the best (wood aged) sour (fruit) ales in the world, using the mixed fermentation technique. Today, we can celebrate that the Morpheus Yeast saga started 10 years ago. There simply isn’t a better way to do that by creating an new iconic beer: The Sour’ire De Mortagne (“sourire” is french for “smile”). And it makes you smile indeed!
