Beer Description: This beer by Cantillon is not a traditional gueuze as it is made from un-blended two year old lambic (spontaneously fermented), rather than from a blend of older and younger lambics. It is also dry-hopped in the cask for three weeks with Hallertau hops. The brewmaster and blender Jean Van Roy originally produced this beer in 2004 to honor his hometown’s football club, Brussels Union St. Gilles, for their Division III championship. Sadly, St. Gilles’ performance got worse so he could not, in good conscience, dedicate the beer to “Champions.” Thus, the name was downgraded to the less grandiose “Cuvée Saint-Gilloise”.
We only receive Cantillon beers three / four times per year and they sell out immediately. We have therefore decided to start a
waiting list, based on first-come, first-served. Please join the waiting list. Once the beers are in stock, you’ll receive an email notification.
