Jopen Johannieter is a dark brown, strong double bock brewed with an ample dose of roasted wheat malt. This roasted wheat gives the beer its color and fruitiness.
The name of this beer comes from the Johannieterklooster (monastery) that used to be located in the heart of Haarlem. Here, monks brewed beer for their guests and for their own consumption. Today, the buildings accommodate the city archives, where the old Haarlem brewer’s statutes are stored.
