let's tap into their story!

Trust us when we say that Grimbergen Brewery is really old; in fact, its history can be traced back to almost 900 years ago, when the Lords of Grimbergen asked Norbert van Xanten - founder of the Premonstratensian Order - to build an abbey. Shortly after Grimbergen Abbey was built, the Fathers of Grimbergen started to brew a local beer.
Grimbergen - Discover Delicious
In 1142, the Lords of Grimbergen revolted against the Duke of Brabant. This meant war, which meant destruction and ruin for the Grimbergen abbey, but the abbey rose majestically from the fire like a phoenix, and was completely rebuilt stone by stone. If you thought that was the end of Grimbergen’s struggle to success, think again. In 1566, the abbey was destroyed for the second time during the religious wars. This time, the Fathers had to fly to Brussels, and only returned to Grimbergen 30 years later, where they rebuilt their community.

In 1629, the abbey was re-established, and the Fathers decided to adopt the phoenix as a symbol of rebirth, alongside the motto “ardet nec consumitur”, which means “burned, but not destroyed”.
The phoenix perfectly symbolised the abbey, as Grimbergen fell for the third time in the 18th century, during the French Revolution. The Fathers had to leave again but naturally, like the tenacious phoenix, they returned to rebuild Grimbergen for the third time. Today, the Grimbergen Fathers are still fully involved in their community; they continue to hold religious services, do charity work, and help people in need.

Of course, beer is still a major part of their lives. Under their close watch, new brews continue to be produced, satisfying taste buds and reigniting the inner flames of people’s hearts all over the world.

Grimbergen’s flagship beers

Today, Grimbergen is known for its range of Belgian abbey beers, which includes blonde, brown, and amber ales. The Grimbergen Blonde is one of the brewery’s flagship beers, and it’s a part of the core range. The Blonde has a unique but well-balanced contrast between spicy and fruity notes, and is known to be a complex, intense, and bittersweet beer.

Grimbergen is also loved for its award-winning Double Ambrée - a malty Dubbel-style amber beer with strong fragrances and flavours of caramel, liquorice, bitter orange, and macerated prunes. The full-bodied amber ale is rich, sweet, and pairs perfectly with hearty meals and good company!

Grimbergen only serves great beers and hospitality!

Legend has it that back when the abbey was first established, travellers often came to visit. Fortunately, they knocked on the right door. The Fathers of Grimbergen were very accommodating to these travellers, and always welcomed them with open arms. To lift the weary traveller’s spirits, the Fathers would often offer them a glass of their delicious homemade beer.

This heartwarming tradition of hospitality continued even after over 900 years, where the Grimbergen Fathers continue to welcome every single visitor with a well-prepared glass of Grimbergen beer! The Fathers are determined to continue to spread the true spirit of Grimbergen - also known as their yummy abbey brews.
Known as The Beer of the Phoenix, Grimbergen’s range of beers is the result of tried and tested brewing techniques and experimentation over nine centuries. The brewery’s delicious brews have gone on to win multiple awards and are truly sensorial Belgian-style beers that are rich, fruity, spicy, and full of character! Although Grimbergen Brewery is owned by the Carlsberg Group, it continues to honour its time-old traditions of brewing and continues to produce top-quality Belgian beers for locals and beyond.
