De Ryck Brouwerij
Spécial De Ryck, is the beer with the longest history in het range of De Ryck beers.It’s an ambercoloured topfermented beer of 5.5% alcohol. The beer was created in 1920 as a reaction to the german lagers that flooted the belgian beer market after the first world war. The belgian national brewers association dared the belgian brewers to create a beer that deviated from this new norm, that was as strong as a lager bur more sophisticated and richer in taste The ‘special belge’ was born and to this day we brew this beer from the original recipe to “honour the courage of our ancestors”. The Spécial De Ryck remains the brewery’s flagship beer.
