Cantillon Bruocsella 1900 Grand Cru

Cantillon Belgium

It may not be your father’s beer, but it was probably his great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather’s. This is the very stuff you see flowing from ceramic crocks in many classic Flemish paintings such as the Brueghel that adorns the label of this beer.

It is a gorgeous golden ale, nearly still, straight from the oak casks in which it fermented for at least three years. Cantillon Grand Cru has unbelievable complexity to match that of any wine, and is the perfect compliment to whatever you’re cooking. You won’t believe that this is beer . . . but it is, and it’s the only authentic old lambic you can buy – a World Classic according to every beer writer who knows anything.

Oh, and by the way, it may not say so on the label yet, but Cantillon Grand Cru is brewed with 100% organic malts and unmalted wheat.

Selected as one of the fifty best beers in the world by Men’s Journal magazine, July 2005.
