Antwerp, Belgium

Located in a strategic location, the brewery was created in order to supply pubs around the neighboring porphyry quarries so that the numerous workmen, made thirsty by stone working, could come to refresh themselves. Quickly, the sales network has spread to neighboring villages. The time is very different from that of today; lemonade, cola, energy drinks and bottled waters do not exist; the spirits are responsible for the scourge of alcoholism. The beers, on the opposite, are healthy, full of vitamins B1 and B12 with an alcohol content rarely exceeding 3%/vol. Per capita beer consumption in Belgium is then around 240 liters per year...

Lefebvre Brewery was created by Jules Joseph Lefebvre in 1876, and after six generations, there is still a youthful determination and family spirit present in the brewery. It is constantly expanding and mainly works on the export market which accounts for 80% of overall production.
