Orvélo, Beer to share...


In the mid ‘80s three Biochemistry students at the Brewery school in Ghent are thoroughly studying the beer brewing process. While they develop a real passion for this subject at school they practice the art of savouring beer even more after school. Who could have guessed that  approximately 25 years later they would be working together again on the development of their own beer “Orvélo”.

In true Steve Jobs’ style they start brewing in Lucs’ garage till they are satisfied with  what runs out of the tap today. The garage was baptised as Housebrewery “Half Zeven” ( half seven ) because “time” suddenly stopped during a successful tasting…


The name “Orvelo” refers to  “Le Vélo d’Or” – cycling, a sport that Dag & Jan love as much  as they love beer. Orvelo is a top fermented Triple of 7.5% alcohol & 32 EBU. Orvelo has a rich  smell of hops & herbs. The first sip is refreshing, shortly followed by complex flavours of rotisserie & Mediterranean spices. All ending in a nice bitterness that lasts long in your mouth…Cheers!  

Beer is life!

It’s a well known fact to every beer lover that we are all genetically loaded with our love for beer : in the Dark Ages it were only the beer drinkers who survived thanks to the cooking  that takes place during the brewing process which killed all pathogenic bacteria…and we are all “offspring” of these people who survived thanks to drinking beer – Who could think of a better excuse for loving beer?

Glass policy

Orvelo is a beer to share so we’ ve chosen to produce big bottles only.  During many of our beer tasting events we experienced that wineglasses are perfectly fit to serve Orvélo. In order to personalise some of your favourite wineglasses we developed a small “ Orvelo wheel “ sticker . The empty bottles are environmentally friendly : ready to go into the recycling system using glass containers.
