The Gouden Carolus Classic 75cl made by Brouwerij Het Anker is named after the Emperor Charles and was mostly consumed during the royal foxhounds according to an old document: "since both the riders and the horses were brought in full fire and made them gallop in order for the hunt always developed in the best atmosphere". In the former days, it was a custom that every Belgian city had its own brewery and its own special beer. But the town Mechelen's beer guild had the special honor to brew the best beer for their Emperor. It's disputable if this dark ale is the best in the world or not. It's an undeniable fact, however, that Gouden Carolus Classic 75cl has been chosen several times the best beer of the world in categories such as Dark Ale, Dubbel and Strong Dark Ale.

The Brand

Brouwerij Het Anker

Brouwerij Het Anker

The Het Anker Brewery is situated in the old hospital of the beguinage from Mechelen, which goes back to the 15th century. In 1872, the family Van Breedam bought and modernised the brewery. Their love and passion for the art of brewing were very important for the return to traditions and the brewing of special beers. Now the brewery is still in the hands of the Van Breedam family, taking on the fifth generation.
