“La Corne du Bois des Pendus” ( The Horn from the wood of the hanged men) is a beer brewed with
Pilsen malt and wheat. This gives it a sunny colour, a plentiful and
creamy head with exceptionally long hold.
The two varieties of hops selected result in a beer with a noticeable
and even strong bitterness. Citrus and rose aromas are also present. It
is thus both smooth and refreshing.
The blonde beer from the Ebly brewery has an alcohol content of 5.9 %
and the triple a content of 10%. La Corne du Bois des Pendus must be
enjoyed in its horn-shaped glass.
The place called “La Corne du Bois des Pendus” comes from a tragic
event that occurred in the 17th century during the terrible Thirty
Years’ War. Polish, Croatian and Hungarian troops sent by Germany to
fight against France settled in southern Luxembourg in February 1636.
Believing they were in France, the troops began to ransom all
surrounding villages. They tracked down the people who had taken refuge
in the forest of Anlier. Between La Folie and the hamlet of Rodenhoff,
where the forest of Anlier forms a Horn, the troops hanged a hundred
men, women and children. It is in tribute that this place is now called
la Corne du Bois des Pendus.
