This just in: Gouden Carolus and Gouden Carolus Tripel for Gravity Head.

I've just confirmed that we'll be able to purchase a keg each of Gouden Carolus and Gouden Carolus Tripel, which are brewed by Anker in Belgium and imported by Wetten International.

These are classic examples of Belgian ale, and ones that have gotten even better in recent years owing to foresight and commitment on the part of the brewery's brain trust.

To compete in a tight market, they've resisted the temptation to cut corners, instead choosing to invest in their brew kit and to emphasize the "Belgianness" of their beers, going so far as to establish a policy of using only Belgian hops from the district around Poperinge.

There'll be more tomorrow on the still evolving Gravity Head lineup.
