CH’TI Blonde (Alc.6,4% Vol.)

Brasserie Castelain is known for its famous bière de garde: CH’TI Blonde.

More than a mere bière de garde, CH’TI reflects the history and passion of the Castelain family. A genuine success story, which has made the brewery famous even overseas.

In 1978, Yves Castelain brewed a Christmas Special beer that he wanted stronger, a criteria uncommon at that time. This beer was a real success and was asked to be a year-round beer by customers: CH’TI Blonde was then created.
