New this week, our tribute to the Muscles from Brussels… The one… The only… Van Damme!! We've brewed this Belgian-style Golden Strong Ale, dry hopped with Hallertau Herkules hops as both a Street Fighter and a Kickboxer. With a Lionheart to hit any Hard Target, this Universal Soldier accepts No Retreat, No Surrender. We've taken Maximum Risk to brew this beer, forged in the Inferno and made sure it doesn't get Derailed on it's way from our brewhouse to your fridge. Ummm uhhhhh….Timecop. . As always, and up-to-the-minute taplist, hours, and parking info are available at our website http://www.alementary.com . . . #drinkcraftnotcrap #hackensack #vandamme #musclesfrombrussels #tribute #drinklocal #drinklocalbeer #craftbeer

Some Ultimate Van Damme Pun Possibilities

Now we counted nine different Van Damme movies in there for our money, but we could be wrong.

The Belgian has yet to comment on the new arrival but, while we don’t have much info in terms of the look and taste of the beer itself, you can guarantee it has got a good kick to it.
