Gouden Carolus Classic has its origins in the rich Mechelen tradition. Every Belgian city had its breweries and its own city beer. The people of Mechelen drank “den Mechelschen Bruynen”. Mechelen, capital of the Netherlands at that time, had its brewing guild and the members stood on their honor as brewers to brew the best beer for the Keizer. An old chronicle from Mechelen reports that this Groot Keizersbier, called "Gouden Carolus" after the gold coins of Keizer Karel, who was mainly drunk during the fox hunt as this put both the riders and the horses in full fire and made them gallop so that the hunt always went in the best mood ”. This “Groot Keizersbier” is still brewed in the Mechelen brewery Het Anker. Dark, very balanced dosed caramel and aromatic malts, in combination with a traditional top fermentation, provide a unique beer that combines 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 obtaining previous prestigious awards, this beer was voted the best dark beer in the world in 2012 ("World's Best Dark Ale").
Gouden Carolus Triple: Despite technological progress, this beer is brewed according to the age-old tradition and unites, as before, the best raw materials from our soil such as ripe barley and fine hops, in order to retain as much pure aroma as possible. This beer was originally brewed for the Knights of the Golden Fleece in 1491. Full of tenderness, with a pure and neat taste, this beer will delight you: matured in the bottle, obtained exclusively from pale malt, highly fermented and 100% natural. With a full-bodied taste that nevertheless quenches thirst, thanks to a balanced hopping. For an ideal taste, pour gently and in one draft at a temperature of about 7 °C. This pleasant golden blonde beer is chosen by those who like a heavier, slightly spicy and refreshing beer. This triple is world-class. Already in 2002, this beer won the Gold Award at the biennial World Beer Cup in the "Triplet" category. In 2010 this beer won gold on the European Beer Star in the category "Belgian Style Tripel". Gold followed again in 2012 with the award for the best Tripel beer in the world (“World's Best Belgian-Style Tripel”).
