The concept of an indie brewery is to provide excitingly different beers to really please each individual. Unlike big commercial breweries, which with the help of clever marketing, make A BEER to merely keep the masses content.
In 2015, a promising encounter between two beer lovers, launched the project « Stuff Brauerei ». Dissatisfied with what beers were available in Luxembourg, we decided to create our own in a small hidden « cave » in Steinsel.
We take no shortcuts, what you see on the label is what you get. The carefully picked specialty whole grains, the freshest hops and delicate yeasts is what makes our beer taste great. Some breweries are tempted to add finings, such as isinglas (fish guts) to cut out a process in the production line and therefore bring costs down. We, on the other hand, value flavoursome and satisfying beer, rather than a quick cheap drink. Drink better quality and locally, all guiltiness is washed away.
Our aim is not to throw around trendy stats on product labels and beer descriptions, but rather to help beer lovers to educate their palate and become beer connoisseurs. It’s all about matching your preferences to the measurable facts about beer to find that perfect sweet spot for you.
This is a measure of the actual bitterness of a beer that uses the quantity of isomerisation of alpha acids which are contained in the hops. IBUs were invented because it was hard to measure how “bitter” a beer is, just like it’s hard to measure how “comfortable” your favourite underwear is… it’s all about one’s perception. There is a limit to the IBU, studies have found that tastebuds can’t detect bitterness in beer that is over 90 IBUs.
Our beer is labelled as honestly as possible. So we avoid tricking you by not producing a beer over 90 IBUs.
The EBC colour method was developed in Europe for measuring the colour of malts and beers. 8 EBC being a very light beer and 50 is a very dark beer. This scale does not directly indicate how dense or how cloudy a beer is, nor does it give an indication of taste. We cover most of the colour range to show you the typical associated flavours, but also may surprise you with beers that boggle the mind.
However our delicately tasting beers need specific raw materials to bring out the flavors we want. So, we make sure to use organic products when they are available.
All our waste is recyclable and re-used when possible. Our bottles and kegs are also 100% recyclable !
We pay more for cleaning products that provide perfect sanitary conditions without damaging the environment.
Our raw materials waste is given to local farmers and used as natural fertilizer.
All our beers are bottle or keg conditioned to get their natural sparkle, meaning we do not inject any CO2 into our beers. At Stuff Brauerei, it’s all about giving space and time for the high fermenting yeast to work its magic !
We have managed to create beers of all styles, colours and tastes to satisfy as many beer lovers as possible. All feedback is welcome in order to constantly evolve with your tastes.
This is our India Pale Ale. Through this product, our mission is to educate the palate of our customers towards a stronger tasting beer. This is an american style that tends towards high bitterness in the beer, which is the result of a large quantity of hops used. Thanks to its pronounced fruity citrus hop taste and the presence of barley malt, we’ve managed to maintain a perfect equilibrium between its bitterness and smoothness.
A bit of history: The IPA style was the solution to provide beer for the British Empire in the east. What was needed was a beer that could survive the gruelling six-month journey from Britain to India intact. Thanks to the antiseptic qualities of the added hops: the beer not only survived the journey; but was found to have improved immeasurably. This was the prototype IPA, thereafter, the beer gradually became paler and more refreshing to suit the Indian climate.
Strong cheese. Also complements dishes made with ingredients such as asparagus, endives, …
The magnificence of this beer is to be admired through her copper tinted colour. If you are looking for well-rounded body and a pleasant toasted malt flavour: this is your beer!
The red ale style is in general way to sweet, due to the Crystal malt component. We managed to set-up a recipe playing on the hops to counter this sweetness and develop a perfectly balanced beer.
Goblet / Chalice Glass
Delicacies, such as “tête de veau” and salmon carpaccio. Any sweet and sour dishes.
This is a belgian speciality ale which here is a fusion between a belgian blond and a “Witbier”. It’s the lightest in colour of our range, as well as the lowest in alcohol. It is crafted with two different barley malts, wheat and finished with delicate noble hops.
The term “knights” recalls beers from a more gallant and chivalrous era.
Spicy food, fish and white poultry meat.
This one is a robust porter, it emphasizes the torrefied malts and is hence richer than a classic porter. Nevertheless, due to a more complex grain formula we’ve managed to strike aside the burnt flavour so often present in that style. This beer is complex and balanced but also robust due to notes of coffee, dark chocolate and “pain d’épices”.
Goblet / Chalice Glass
Game meat, stews and chocolaty desserts. Its robustness can even be appreciated with a cigar.
