DR BLUES BELGIAN BREWS® are hand-crafted BEERS produced in the DR BLUES BEER CLINIC in Belgium with pharmacy-like attention to detail. DR BLUES prescribes the beer treatment, the PHARMACIST (brewer) makes the beer prescription, and Dr. Blues' NURSE (Emily) dispenses it. Gifts of pure nature, DR BLUES BELGIAN BREWS® mature listening to 30,000 Wats of BigAppleBlues music & aspire to be the very best in quality and luxury.
DR BLUES is an American doctor and scientist who with top Belgian master brewers captured the magic of beer in 5 prescriptions: PainKiller™, NerveBlock™, SuperPills™, PaceMaker™, and non-alcoholic Placebo™. DR BLUES does not promote drinking. Instead, he brews his recipes for the lucky and consenting few who, like him, insist on a unique story & experience for special occasions.
DR BLUES BELGIAN BREWS® are brewed in an environmentally conscious fashion, using spent grains from the brewing processes as cereal for breakfast, and as cow feed - it is simply environmentally irresponsible to waste.
In DR BLUES’ BEER CLINIC, the Walls of Sound comprising 30,000 Watts of acoustic energy continuously play Big Apple Blues music. The sound pressure produces a continuous, gentle vibration of the beer. Highest quality beers benefit from a slight shake during the maturation process and re-distribution of single-cell yeast to enhance fermentation. In DR BLUES' BEER CLINIC, we use a signal-generator to inject a signal tuned to the resonant frequency of the beer shelves to shake the beer bottles. The acoustic energy awakens the yeast to multiply and impart the complex flavors inherent in DR BLUES’ beer magic.
Our master brewers combine the finest Belgian and international hops custom-tailored for each of the DR BLUES BEER prescriptions.
Our proprietary recipes combine centuries-old Belgian beer-making knowledge with scientific advances to make the magic combination of yeast and fermentation that imparts the unique character to DR BLUES BEER.
Choice of grains is important in beer making. Our preference is top-shelf Belgian grains. Each DR BLUES BEER prescription combines barley with other grains to add character, top, color and body to our beers. Our beers are not filtered. The mix of grains is immediately evident in the color of the pour into the DR BLUES Glass.
Did it ever occurre to you that there must be some term that describes the study of beer, similar to how oenology describes the study of wine? Zythology is the study of beer and beer making; it is to beer what ‘oenology’ is to wine. A zythologist is a true beer connoisseur who can share many […]
It is often said that weak beer was drunk in preference to dirty water in European towns during the middle ages. This fact is probably overstated, but the idea that beer was nutritionally important in the medieval period seems more likely. Weaker, so-called “small beers” would have been low in alcohol but a valuable source […]
