Slaefke, Aughems Fluytjesbier

Blond Triple of 7,5 % ABV

Slaefke beer

The Name

During the Middle Ages, salesmen in Europe were often attacked, kidnapped and sold as slaves to Muslim pirates on the Mediterranean Sea. Because of those anti-Christians, a new order of monks was created : The Holy Trinity (Trinataniers) with the sole purpose of ransoming Christian captives. This order was very strong in the area around Bruges. When the slaves became free and returned home, their arrival was announced by playing cheerful music on a flute. Every year, on the first Sunday after Pentecost, this tradition relives in the village of Ouwegem. The village already have traditional sweets you can whistle on, now they have a special beer to honour the festivities.

The Story Behind The Beer

This beer recipe has been developped in 2007 by the freelance brewers Alex and Yannick. Are they really freelance or rather slaves of the brewery ? After numerous trials they came to this final recipe. This recipe is used exclusively by the organisation of the yearly festivities in Ouwegem.
