Brouwerij Het Anker Maneblusser

Maneblusser comes from Brouwerij Het Anker in Mechelen, Belgium

This blonde ale from Het Anker was crafted as a tribute to Mechelen, the brewery's hometown.

The brew's name comes from a peculiar occurrence on the night of January 27, 1687. As the city was wrapped in a dense fog, the moon made a reddish glow on Saint Rumbold's tower. A drunken man yelled, "Fire, fire, the tower is on fire," causing a great stir. Before people reached the tower to extinguish the flames, the moon had already passed through the fog. From that moment, Mechelenians have been known as Maneblussers, or "moon-extinguishers." The blonde ale is brewed according to the traditional method, and is refermented in the bottle. It has subtle citrus aromas and a crisp, clean finish.
