Gentse Strop 33 cl Bottle + Glass + Gallows

Gentse Strop honours the proud in heart.
The beer owes its name to the ‘Gentenaars’, the citizens of Ghent, who were in rebellion against Emperor Charles between 1540 and 1545.

…By all accounts, when the Gentenaars refused to pay yet another war tax and staged an uprising against their bellicose ruler, Emperor Charles had the Ghent notables paraded through the city to humiliate them, dressed in tabards and with nooses around their necks, as a sign that they deserved to hang.
