Since 1822, six generations of the Lindemans family have crafted authentic lambics of exquisite taste and complexity in the Pajottenland Region, southwest of Brussels. Lambics are among the world’s rarest and most mysterious beers: they are the only beers fermented via wild, airborne yeast. The unusual and unique flavors that come from spontaneous fermentation are unmatched in the world of beer.
At Lindemans Brewery, we use the traditional lambic fermented on oak to produce all our specialty beers. They include the authentic Old Gueuze Cuvée René and Old Kriek Cuvée René, refermented in bottle, characterized by a sparkling and slightly sour flavour with a dry finish. Or the filtered Gueuze Lindemans with its softer and lightly sweeter flavor, and the Faro, a traditional pearly brown Brussels Lambic beer from Breughel's era. We also brew fruit beers made from unsweetened, freshly squeezed juice, macerated in casks with lambic: Framboise, Pecheresse, Cassis, Apple and of course the world famous Lindemans Kriek, exclaimed by beerhunter Michael Jackson as one of the 5 best beers of the world.
Over the past decade, the total production of Lindemans beers has increased from 50.000 to 85.000 hectolitres per annum. Brewery Lindemans is the leading independent lambic brewery and the second biggest lambic producer worldwide. Thanks to the unique and characteristic flavour of our beers, our family brewery has earned its distinguished position of leading Belgian exporter of fruit beers to the US.
Today, the day-to-day management is the responsibility of the cousins Geert and Dirk Lindemans. They continue to expand the family brewery while remaining true to their roots and adopting a healthy vision of the future.
