Gouden Carolus Classic has its origins in the rich Mechelen tradition. Every Belgian city had its breweries and its own city beer. This is how the people of Mechelen drank “den Mechelschen Bruynen”. Mechelen, capital of the Netherlands at that time, had its brewers' guild and the members stood on their honor as brewers to brew the best beer for the Emperor. An old Mechelen chronicle reports that this Great Imperial Beer, called “Gouden Carolus” after the gold coins of Emperor Charles, was mainly drunk during fox hunting “as it got both the riders and the horses into full fire and made them gallop so that the hunt was always went off in good spirits.” This “Great Keizersbier” is still brewed in the Mechelen brewery Het Anker. Dark, very balanced caramel and aromatic malts, in combination with a traditional top fermentation, create a unique beer that unites the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. This makes it ideal in combination with culinary specialties such as stews, game, pates and even sabayon.
After having achieved previous prestigious awards, this beer was named the best dark beer in the world in 2012 (“World's Best Dark Ale”).
