To celebrate their 25th anniversary, the players of the rugby club RC Pitbulls in Arendonk have not ordered bunch of flowers from the florist around the corner. However they asked the local village brewer to brew a special rugby beer for them.
The beer name and the alcohol percentage refer to the starting year of RC Pitbulls. The brewer was also at the beginning of the creation of this club in 1988. The two English hops and subtle touch of malt whiskey are a tribute to the popular English rugby culture and the many whiskey enthusiasts among former rugby players. It is an authentic beer with a mild flavor from barley and wheat.
