Clément is inspired by the second generation of the De Ryck family. After WWI, Clément De Ryck created a new beer as an alternative to the popular pilsner. His Spécial De Ryck is still the flagship beer of the brewery. In 2019 Miek and Bram, the fifth generation of the family, accepted a similar challenge. Together with their mother An De Ryck, they launched Clément. The beer is low in alcohol (5,2%) and perfect for warm summer evenings.
Brewery De Ryck was founded in 1886 by Gustave De Ryck under the name Brewery ’De Gouden Arend’, as a tribute to his teacher of ‘Brauerei zum goldenen Adler’ in Bremen, where he did his traineeship. At that time the brewery produced a blond and dark beer, ‘Uitzet’. Gustave was succeeded by his son Clément and his two daughters Valerie and Julia. Considering the brewery survived two world wars, we can conclude they were very dedicated to their tasks.
