Dubbel and Tripel Belgian Ales Receive Exceptional, Good Scores

Could be one of the first beers from West Virginia for us, and a great welcome to the state

BeerAdvocate Magazine, a leading publication for beer enthusiasts and professionals, reviewed two hand-crafted beers from West Virginia brewery Bridge Brew Works ( in its January 2012 issue. The brewery’s Belgian-Style Dubbel received a score of 91, which BeerAdvocate considers to be ‘exceptional - must try.’ The Belgian-Style Tripel received an 88. Taste, smell, and look are all taken into consideration when BeerAdvocate reviews a beer, with a score of 95 or higher needed to be considered “world-class.”

About the Dubbel, BeerAdvocate writes, “Did we just wake up in Belgium again? Quite a surprise, and comparable to its abbey-brewed counterparts. Could be one of the first beers from West Virginia for us, and a great welcome to the state.”

Bridge Brew Works was established in Fayetteville, West Virginia by Nathan Herrold and Ken Linch. According to Nathan and Ken, “As brewers and business owners it is wonderful to have out of state, independent advocates of great beer think that you are doing a good job. We couldn’t be happier.“

The Dubbel and Tripel will both be brewed again and available later in the year.

Besides the Belgian ales, Bridge Brew Works also makes Long Point Lager, Bridge Brew Ale, and several seasonal brews. The company also recently introduced Trubell, a bottled Belgian style beer, and Old Burly, a bottled barleywine style brew. Both draft and bottles of their brews can be found throughout southern West Virginia ( Bridge Brew Works will launch a new website this spring.
