Brabo, November 28 2008

To continue my Antwerp legend from last weekend, the giant Antigoon continues to chop off hands of all those that do not pay a toll to cross the river Scheldt. After chopping off each hand, Antigoon tosses it in the river. Nice guy, huh!?
Along comes Silvius Brabo, a Roman soldier, who gives Antigoon a taste of his own. Brabo chops off a hand from the giant and tosses it in the river. The name Antwerp translates to "hand-throwing". To the left is the statue of Brabo's victory throw and is located in front of Antwerp's city hall.
This brew will be racked on top of the Antigoon using the Antwerp yeast.
