Biere de Champagne / Biere Brut

A kind of crossover between the flavors of a fine Belgian ale and the sparkling, bubbly mouth-feel of Champagne or other sparkling wine, this beer style has a long and involved brewing process.

Often brewed over the course of months, most go through multiple stages of fermentation, with some examples even being shipped from Belgium to France to be cave-aged in the Champagne region. They often go through the "methode de champenoise" process of inverting, slowly rotating, and then freezing the neck of the bottle to remove the extra yeast.

Best served cool, at 46-54 degrees, in a champagne flute.
