Emperor Charles V (1500-1558) was born in Ghent and spent a large part of his youth in Belgium.
He is considered as one of the greatest ever emperors. His empire was eventually so great that people used to say that the sun never set on it. Emperor Charles V is also often considered as the forefather of Europe.
But Charles V was not just a great figure. He was also an ardent beer lover. In his honour, Haacht Brewery has created the Charles Quint range beers that are fit for an emperor.
Charles Quint beers: for people who enjoy life to the full.
