What’s on Tap?

Unlike many breweries, which often have many varieties of beer, De Koninck keeps it simple, with just a few beers in production. The flagship brew is the Bolleke De Koninck, an amber-hued pale ale served in a rounded glass. Also on tap are the Tripel d'Anvers, a strong, blonde beer; a wild ale (Wild Jo); and a dry spiced beer called Lost in Spice.
