Over À BLOC®

À BLOC® is Frans voor ‘volle bak’ een wielerterm die precies weergeeft wat onze ambitie is. Vol gaan voor het beste bier dat we sporters kunnen bieden. À BLOC® brengt sinds 2016 Natural Blonde Beer op de markt in Australië, Zuid-Afrika, Denemarken, Zwitserland, Engeland en Nederland. Een vol, fris blond bier verrijkt zuivere bergmineralen uit de Zwitserse Alpen, en met 4,9 % alcohol.

In de zomer van 2018 introduceert À BLOC® zijn tweede craft beer met Alpine Minerals®: Ultralight IPA, een echte "India Pale Ale" en dus vol van smaak. Maar ook laag in alcohol en calorieën (1,2% en slechts 13 Kcal/ 100 ml) en rijk aan mineralen en daarmee het ultieme sportbier.

Bier is het belangrijkste product van À BLOC®, maar we zijn méér dan een biermerk. Wij geloven dat sportieve prestaties altijd gevierd moeten worden. Bij voorkeur met vrienden. Het beste halen uit jezelf en anderen inspireren dat ook te doen, avontuur beleven en vooral je ervaringen samen delen, ligt aan de basis van alles wat wij doen: “Life is what you make it”.
