Gildenbier
In the earlier days, Gildenbier ("guild beer") was closely connected with the guild of archers in Diest. This beer was only drunk at the annual Guild Ball. The barrels of beer were stored under close guard in the cellars of the town hall and only taken upstairs on the night of the ball, at which candidate members had to undergo an ordeal by fire. On the stroke of 12 o'clock , they had to drink a litre of Gildenbier standing on one leg. Those who could keep their feet, despite the vicious shoves of other memebers, were accepted into the guild. At the end of the ball, all remaining Gildenbier was drawn off into bottles. Only guild members were allowed to take the beer home to mature in the cellar until it became nectar.
