                                 Global Beer Network introduces NEW GULDEN DRAAK 9000 QUADRUPLE

 

“Quad” Redefines Belgian Beer with Extra Malt, Deep Amber Color and a Superb Malty Sweet Flavor

 

 

 

 

Middleton, Mass. – (Sept. 25, 2012) – Global Beer Network, the exclusive U.S. importer for more than 60 Belgian beer labels, has added a new quadruple beer to its most popular label: Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple. At 10.7 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), new Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple is brewed using four times the quantity of malt in a traditional lager beer, which gives the brew its sweet flavor and generous alcohol content.

 

With a deep amber color the beer’s fruity, spicy scent creates a smooth and subtle sweet taste and a wonderfully accomplished bouquet. The taste is crisp pear and apple up front that fades into a slight clove and bready alcohol flavor. Named for the postal code in the Belgium city of Ghent, the 9000 Quadruple ups the ante in taste, fermentation and color.

 

“Out of all our beers, Gulden Draak fans are the most dedicated and passionate about their beer choice,” said Steve Villani, president, Global Beer Network. “Gulden Draak means Golden Dragon, and the 9000 Quad takes this soaring dragon to new heights. It is an outstanding extension to our famously popular Gulden Draak brand.”

 

The Gulden Draak brand is named after the golden dragon statue that sits at the top of the belfry in the Belgian city of Ghent. The brand also includes original Gulden Draak, an award-winning creamy, dark brown Belgian Triple Ale (barley wine). The new Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple pairs well with buttery cheeses like Brie, Gouda, havarti and Swiss; sharp cheeses like blue and Cheddar; as well as with beef, smokey barbecue and wild game.

 

Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple is available at retail outlets across the country for a suggested retail price of $11.99 for a 750 ML bottle or $14.99 for a four-pack of 11.2 oz bottles. Visit www.globalbeer.com for more information.

 

Through the end of 2012, fans of the Gulden Draak brands are encouraged to join the Gulden Draak World Ambassador program.
