Something is going on in the old Antwerp harbour.
Two icons, the Hoppenbrouwers family and Felix Pakhuis, forged a band of brothers through their common passion for the proud Belgian beer tradition.
The Hoppenbrouwers family has tons of experience in brewing beer. After all Hoppenbrouwers means brewers of hop beer. Where the Hoppenbrouwers family’s experience lies in brewing beer, Felix Pakhuis’ experience lies in pouring beer and they do that with a grandeur reflecting the Felix Pakhuis building’s splendor and history.
Through both icons’ shared passion for beer, an experimental brewery brewing limited batches of beer in the Felix Pakhuis cellars, was born.
As an historical depot for hop and barley, situated next to a street that used to be a channel supplying clear water to the nearby breweries, Felix Pakhuis is as embedded in the great Belgian beer tradition as the Hoppenbrouwers family.
The first creation of the newly established brewery goes by the name of “Bolder”.
Bolder is as steadfast as the its translation from Dutch e.i. mooring post. It is a no-nonsense Belgian special beer with 7,5% of alcohol, brewed for a moment of unbridled enjoyment.
Bolder also stands for uncomplicated boldness: what you see is what you get. Bolder’s craftsmanship is echoed by its design featuring a unique font that consolidates the beer’s ownable, stylish and bold identity. A bold but esthetic approach designed to entice both women and men.
