De Maeght Van Gottem (The virgin of Gottem) is the newest addition to the Sint Canarus family, and it’s popularity is ever increasing. A beautiful blonde ale naturally brewed with an added twist; a single hop flower is added to every bottle by hand! This provides a unique hop aroma that has been regarded as a miracle by some.
Alcohol content: 6,5%
The tiny village of Gottem is just south of the small East Flanders town of Deinze, thereby making it downtown. But the house brewery of Sint Canarus is not exactly situated in a bustling, urban setting. Far from it.
This is in fact a small craft brewery serving a small, rural community. And with a bit of a quirky streak, brought to you by the brewmaster mister Piet Meirhaeghe - also known as Dr. Canarus.
The brewery & brewmaster get their name from a local drinking club, called "Semper Canarus." Translation: always drunk. Indeed, the good doctor is known to host group lectures at the brewery on the subject of the positive health benefits of beer.
