About à BLOC
Craft Beer Made for Cyclists
à BLOC brings together two of our favourite worlds: cycling and craft beer. We blended these and put them in a bottle, creating à BLOC Superprestige Natural Blonde Beer. The recipe has been designed to be the most refreshing post-ride beer you can have. It contains elements of a Pilsner, IPA and Hefeweizen, and the result is a great tasting crisp and refreshing, unfiltered and unpasteurised craft beer, rich in proteins and vitamin B. On top of that, we added Alpine Minerals making à BLOC the perfect beer for after a ride.
We’re both local and global. We created the recipe with our master brewer in The Netherlands, and we work with craft brewers around the world to brew locally with the best ingredients. This enables us to brew our beer close to the cycling communities we serve around the world, making for a better quality beer and reducing transport. We sell online and we want to work with local bike couriers to deliver the beers. It’s a win-win for everyone, and better for our planet!
