Grimbergen monks want to brew own beer

The monks of Grimbergen Abbey, just outside Brussels, want to brew their own beer based on a centuries-old recipe.

The beer currently known as Grimbergen is produced by mega-brewer Maes. Despite being called an ‘abbey beer’, it has never been brewed by monks or at an abbey. Launched in the 1950s, it simply carries the name of the abbey that formerly brewed beer.

Now the Grimbergen monks would like to brew their own beer, based on a recipe long used by the abbey’s monks. The abbey brewery shut down in the 18th century, during the French Revolution.

New beer will supposedly be introduced during their 2020 New Year’s Reception.
