Quenast, Wallonia, Belgium
The Lefebvre Brewery was opened in 1876 to quench the thirst of quarry workers after a long day of hauling stones. Lower in alcohol, filled with vitaminds, and often safer to drink than water, beer was the drink of choice for many. While the popularity of Lefebvre's malt ales quickly spread to neighbouring villages, production was just as quickly forced into a halt by German occupation of the facility during WWI. The family purchased another brewery in 1919, located in Chemin du Croly, Quenast, Belgium and currently operates under the sixth generation of the Lefebvre family. Though the brewery produces a full line of Abbey, Degustation, and Fruit Beers, it's most famous creation is the Blanche De Bruzelles, which is widely recognized for its label depiction of the famous Brussels statue, Manneken Pis. The brand has gained a global fan base, not to mention international awards and worldwide critical acclaim.
