Lindemans Brewery 200th Anniversary

Lindemans Brewery 200th Anniversary

Lindemans Brewery started its brewing journey in 1822, Lindemans is a lambic producer that brews and blends its own lambic as well as provides wort to several other blenders throughout the Senne Valley. Lindemans produces both traditional lambics as well as sweetened lambic. The brewery is currently under its 7th generation of ownership by the Lindemans family.It now celebrates its 200th anniversary.

The Lindemans family has been brewing lambic beer for six generations in Vlezenbeek, Belgium, where Joos Frans Lindemans married the local brewer’s daughter Francisca Josina Vandersmissen in 1822. This event marked the farming family’s entrance into the beer world. 2022 will also be an important milestone in the history of the brewery because in the autumn the Lindemans family will open a second production site in Ruisbroek, called Lindemans Satellite Brewery.

In this new expansion, cousins Dirk and Geert Lindemans will continue to support growth with a whopping 28-million-euro investment and looks to push the family into the third century still expanding and making some of the best beer. Geert Lindemans, CEO of Lindemans said, “In the new brewing hall, we can produce up to 12,000 litres per brew. In time we can increase to six brews a day. With the current fermentation and lagering capacity, the annual production volume is about 150,000 hectolitres.”

We look forward to seeing the Linderman brand grow and continue to strive for excellence, and we are excited to see where it goes.
