Saint Gummarus is the patron saint of the small town of Lier, situated in the Kempen region. Gummarus is said to have performed quite a few miracles.

He managed to create a spring just by touching the ground with his stick, a feat that the brewers found very interesting, not to mention useful.

In honour of this Saint, the cosy tavern in the nearby open-air museum of Bokrijk bears the same name. This tavern was transferred from the town of Lier; lock, stock and barrel.

The Cornelissen brewery entered the world of strong beers with its Sint-Gummarus Tripel and Dubbel. Sint-Gummarus is not a recognised abbey beer as it is not linked to a current or former abbey.

Sint-Gummarus Tripel is the first tripel made in the province of Limburg. This beer, copper-blonde in colour, is the fruit of an extended brewing process in which the beer is given plenty of time to mature.

This tripel has a fruity aroma with a slightly bitter finish. The sturdy collar of froth stays upright for quite some time in the elegant serving glass. The aromas evoke alcohol and malt.

The ‘tripel’ name is a reference to a strong, top-fermented beer, blonde to amber in colour, which re-ferments in the bottle and was inspired by abbey beers. Belgians do love their tripels.
