DR BLUES BELGIAN BREWS® are limited-quantity, hand-crafted BEERS produced in DR BLUES BEER™ CLINIC in Belgium with pharmacy-like attention to detail. DR BLUES prescribes the BEER treatment, THE PHARMACIST (BREWER) makes the BEER prescriptions and the NURSE (EMILY) dispenses it. Gifts of pure nature, DR BLUES BEER™ listens to music during fermentation and conditioning, and aspire to be the very best in luxury and quality. DR BLUES BEER™ is an American doctor and scientist who with top Belgian Master Brewer Marc Knops developed the magic of beer in 5 prescriptions: PainKiller©, NerveBlock©, PaceMaker©, SuperPills©and Placebo©. DR BLUES BEER™ does not promote drinking. Instead, he brews his recipes for the lucky, consenting few, who like him, insist on a unique story & experience for special occasions. Available on-line only.
As opposed to mass-production beer, DR BLUES BEER™ undergoes an additional fermentation process after bottling. A small amount of yeast and sugar injected into the bottles interact to add magic to the beer during 3 weeks additional fermentation in complete darkness, while listening to the music. During this time, a wall of sound wakes up the yeast as the acoustic energy shakes the shelves with the beer by massive 20,000 Watts of loudspeakers.
Our master brewers combine the finest Belgian and international hops custom tailored for each one of DR BLUES BEER™ prescriptions.
Our proprietary recipes are based on the centuries old Belgian beer-making knowledge and science to make the magic combination of yeast and fermentation that imparts the full bodied character of each of our beers.
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 a DR BLUES glass.

DR BLUES BELGIAN BREWS® are hand-made, limited production beers, brewed in our boutique brewery in the fields close to Antwerpen, Belgium.
We do not add any artificial additives and do not insufflate CO2 to our beer. All our beers are in-bottle conditioned, the most natural way to add life to our beer.
We play music to our beers during the in-bottle fermentation. Walls of speakers in our brewery and DR BLUES BEER™ warehouse, powered by ten thousand watt amplifiers, rock the shelves to the rhythm of Big Apple Blues band to facilitate fermentation.
