Life wisdoms and sayings of the people of Ghent and welcome visitors

Why are Artevelde Gentse Wijze and Artevelde Gentse Leute beers considered to be Ghent’s city beers? And what do the people of Ghent and others think of our beers? We let them have their say here, and they don’t mince their words. They are real astrants, vrankegoards and frankegoards.
