Biere Scotch Silly 33cl
MINIMUM ORDER 6 BOTTLES
At the time of World War 1, outside of the city of Silly, a regiment of Scottish soldiers were stationed and they naturally requested a Scotch Ale from the brewery. Unfortunately, the brewers couldn't come up with the beer, because they hadn't mastered that beer style – and neither could they access the sugars necessary to brew it. A Scottish soldier called Jack Peyne helped develop this beer and, when the hostilities ended, he remained in the village, teaching the Silly brewers how to make a genuine Scotch ale. He continued working at the brewery for many years. That recipe created at the end of the First World War still stands to this day, and Kent Golding hops are still used.
Scotch de Silly stands out with sweet aromas of toffee, brown sugar, caramel and maple syrup with hints of hazel nuts. The beer develops this very sweet taste thanks to the candy sugar it is brewed with. In the background, you get a hunch of nuttiness. A classic Scotch ale that goes well with soups and stews.Learn More£2.95
Biere Silly Rouge 33cl
MINIMUM ORDER 6 BOTTLES
Brasserie de Silly’s Silly Rouge is a fully-fledged degustation beer brewed with the same brewery’s Scotch de Silly and natural cherry juices. The overriding impression is one of sweetness, picked up by the nose as well as the tongue. The taste is dominated by cherries and the slightly sweet/sour touch in the finish comes from the cherry pips.

Biere La Divine 33cl
MINIMUM ORDER 6 BOTTLES
La Divine is a beer that was created by Silly upon request. A beer distributor from Battice, in Liege, had found an old local recipe. He asked Brasserie de Silly to produce a beer from it, back in the early nineties. Silly promptly obliged.
La Divine is a very strong amber triple, one that's smooth and easy to drink. Accessible for most beer drinkers and yet complex enough in taste and flavours to please the experts. The name ‘La Divine’ is said to refer to the divine qualities of the brew - and maybe to the ‘divine chance’ to have found that original recipe.
On the nose, there are aromas of barley and wine and sweet candy-sugar tones, with plenty of fruitiness. The taste is slightly sweet and fruity, with just a touch of caramel. A velvety-smooth beer with a rich mouth-feel, hoppy notes and on the finish, a subtle bitterness with smoky impressions.Learn More£3.40

Biere Silly Saison 75cl
The Saison (farmhouse ale) is a humble regional beer style that was brewed in the quiet winter months and satisfied the thirsts of farmers and fieldworkers out in the fields in the busy summer. 30 years ago, this style was unknown and only appreciated by older drinkers from the area where it was brewed. Now it’s really popular among beer aficionados and the Saison de Silly is considered one of the best. It stands out from the classic ‘saisons’ through its amber colour, a fruity aroma, and zesty touches, with a hint of caramel compounding its light bitterness. It’s has a unique, light taste but at the same time subtle touches of sweets and fruit. A zesty, refreshing beer that calls out for another one.Learn More£5.55

Biere Double Enghien Blonde 75cl
The original Double Enghien that was brewed by Tennstedt-Decroes, in Enghien, was an amber saison. When Brasserie de Silly bought the brewery, they changed it into a straight blond beer, as they already had a saison – the Saison de Silly. Several variants of the Double have since been introduced. The top-fermented, regional style beer has spicy and hoppy aromas that strike first with a shrug of acidity on the tongue and a nice dry bitter aftertaste. It’s a well-balanced blonde beer, in which no ingredient is overpowering.Learn More£6.55
Biere Abbaye de Forest Metal Gift Pack 75cl
The Abbaye de Forest tickles the taste buds with fruity impressions of raisins that culminate in a pleasantly zesty, subtly bitter finish. It’s a blonde abbey-style beer characterised by a touch of hops, a good balance of sweet and bitter flavours and a rather pronounced character. The name of the beer refers to the Benedictine Abbaye de Forest that existed from 1106 until 1764, when the abbey was destroyed by a fire. Also, there is a cheese maker from Thoricourt (a small town near to the brewery), who produces a 'beer cheese' using Silly's very-own Abbaye de Forest. Presented in a printed metal tin.
