”Gouden Arend” is a strong (9% alc.vol) golden blond beer with a surprisingly powerful and citric hoppy character , especially brewed for the unique occasion of the 125th anniversary of the brewery in september 2011. The name is a tribute to our founder Gustave De Ryck, who founded the brewery originally in 1886 under the name ‘De Gouden Arend’ (= the golden eagle) , as a referance to his german teacher of the ‘zum Goldenen Adler' brauerei in Bremen.
We rebrew it every anniversary in september since to celebrate our birthday. We limit it exclusively to golden printed 75cl bottles to emphasize the pleasure of sharing the occasion and enjoying this delicious brew in good company! Cheers!
