The Adriaen Brouwer Dark Gold Ale is a true authentic double brown ale, brewed in the tradition of the Oudenaarde region in the Flemish Ardennes. One of the most picturesque regions of Flanders. The centuries old brewing tradition combines wonderfully with authentic yeast strings and top notch ingredients. This is the beer the world famous Flemish painter Adriaen Brouwer, born in Oudenaarde in 1605, used to love so much. Perhaps too much, since he died at a young age after an over indulgent lifestyle of ale, sex and too much partying. He was born with a natural talent for color and drawing, he was the epicurean by excellence, spending all his money the moment he got it on the good things in life. The yearly beer festival in Oudenaarde is named after him. You will love this living beer!
