This Het Anker cafe "brew-pub" is located off the Mechelen markt area, along the canal. It is an old building with high ceilings, and wood decor. One feature is the anchor inside the bar. The actual brewery is next door. I sampled three draft biers:
Bruynen Anker, a 6% bruin, that is amber in color, with caramel flavors, and a sweet finish. Tripel Carolus, a spicey, dry, 9% Golden Tripel with a hugh head. And finally, Gulden Carolus, a dark amber strong ale at 7.5%, with lots of malty, licorice flavors, and a big sweet finish. An interesting spot to break for draft Anker products in very good condition.
