The Brewery: The Musketeers brewery was founded in Ursel (between Bruges and Gand) in 2000 by 4 brew-engineers, after being graduated from KaHo St. Lieven in Gent, the best known brewing school of Flanders. Like the real French Musketeers of the 18th century, the 4 friends bundled their enthusiasm and efforts, and created the Musketeers brewing company. 

Origin: Stout beer is probably the most famous black beer style. To understand its name, we need to move back to England when Porter beer emerged. This light but dark beer was served to people working in the harbor’s docks (moving crates, « porteur ») before a new style, stronger, appeared bearing the name Stout Porter. At the time, Stout only meant « strong beer » but the name quickly became connected to dark beer. Porter did not fade away but is still used by brewers, sometimes to display a difference of alcohol volume or of used ingredients. The term "Imperial" comes from Empress Catherine the Great of Russia, who greatly appreciated this beer for its medicinal properties.

Food: Ideal at the end of the evening by the fireplace.
