let's tap into their story!

The history of Lindemans began in 1822, at an old farm in Vlezenbeek named “Hof ter Kwade Wegen”, which literally means “the farm of bad roads”. Sure, the farm had an ominous name, but that did not prevent its growth and eventual success as Lindemans. In fact, the small village had something magical of its own: exceptional microflora.

That’s right, the air surrounding Vlezenbeek is loaded with hundreds of strains of wild yeasts, including the most famous ones: "Brettanomyces Bruxellensis" and Brettanomyces Lambicus". This allowed the brewery to brew a beer using a special method: spontaneous fermentation, also known as natural or wild fermentation.
Welcome to the Lindemans Family
So, how did the brewery even start? Well, It all started when Joos Frans Lindemans married the highly sought-after daughter of the owners of the farm - Maria Anna Van Dorselaer and Petrus Jacobus Vandersmissen.Lindemans loved their life on the farm, but he wanted something more. He started to brew lambic in the evenings, after he finished a day’s hard work of ploughing the land.

During the bleak winter months, the many working men and women in Vlezenbeek were struggling to find work, so they joined Lindemans at the brewery. In the first year, the brewery managed to produce 360 barrels of beer with its humble but decent brewing facilities consisting of two vats, a mixing tray, and two cooling trays.

Lindemans and his wife had a total of 11 children, one of which - Joos Frans Duke - took over the family farm in 1865. In 1869, Duke decided to expand their operations and built the farmhouse and the old brewhouse - which still exist today! At the time, the brewery was only producing lambic and faro; fruit beers were not in its lineup yet.
In 1901, the farm-brewery was succeeded by Duke’s youngest child, Theofiel, who managed to develop the brewery into further success. As a result, agricultural activities were gradually reduced to make way for larger brewing operations. In 1930, Theofiel passed the torch to one of his 4 children, Emiel. Unfortunately, due to the war, the brewery could only produce one brew per month during that time.
After Emiel passed, the agricultural activities ceased completely, and the brewery solely focused on beer production. As René and Nestor still had to complete their studies, a brewer named Triphon Antoons was hired to temporarily step in and take charge of the brewing process. After completing their studies, the two brothers took charge and even created their first kriek in 1961 using the traditional methods of maturing the brew in oak barrels and letting the brew undergo the second fermentation process in the bottle.

In 1970, Lindemans started exporting their beers to France. 10 years later, the brewery continues exporting their brews to overseas markets, including the United States, France, Switzerland, and Germany. Lindemans’ beers were so internationally loved that 70% of their production were shipped abroad to keep up with the demands! In 1996, the brewery signed a contract with a leading Belgian retailer, Delhaize, to help with sales.

Lindemans signature brews

Lindemans is best known for its delicious lambic beers - a type of Belgian beer that is fermented using wild yeast and bacteria. Lindemans’ Kriek has a unique taste like no other and it’s because the Lindemans have been adding fresh, whole cherries to its lambics for generations. That’s right, the brewery doesn’t use sweetened cherry concentrate! The deep red lambic has notes of freshly harvested cherries and a uniquely sweet and sour profile.
Another iconic lambic of Lindemans is the Framboise, a dark ruby beauty that has a sweet and sour, fruity oak palate thanks to the raspberry juice added to season the brew. The tasty lambic emits aromas of red berries and light caramel that are complemented by its raspberry jam and zingy citrus notes.
Today, Lindemans Brewery is still family-run with the two Lindemans cousins, Dirk and Geert, taking charge of the daily management of the brewery. The two continue to be faithful to tradition so as to ensure the authentic nature and flavour of all their brews. As a result, Lindemans continues to churn out fantastic and authentic lambics that go on to win multiple beer awards!
