Gentse Graaf (The Count of Ghent) is a line of Belgian beers of high fermentation. Besides the traditional blonde and brown beer, Gentse Graaf surprises with a dubbel brown variant, tripels, honey beer and amber beers. This versatility represents the role of Ghent in the County of Flanders. Despite the turbulent history, where periods of war and social uprising and periods of peace and prosperity took turns, the port of Ghent attracted shippers and merchants from all corners of the earth.
Gentse Graaf recalls the atmosphere of the stories that have been told in the shadow of the Gravensteen (Castle of the Counts). Time for your own story: take a Gentse Graaf!
Gentse Gilde (Guild of Ghent) consists of Apple, Cherry and Peach beer. With these three fruit beers, Gentse Traditie wants to honor Ghent’s fruit trade. In the 14-15th century the fruit traders sold their fruit on the marketplace that nowadays is known as the Korenmarkt.
The history of the fruit traders’ guild, their orchards and cherry trees inspired us to brew these delicious fruit beers.
