A FRUITY ENDEAVOR
The Lindemans family has been in the business of beer brewing since 1822. Founded on a small farm in Vlezenbeek, Belgium by Frans Lindemans, they pride themselves as being set apart from everyone else, boasting a brewery and beers that are made uniquely the way they want.
They specialize in lambic beer, which begins its life with spontaneous fermentation and no human intervention. It’s known as one of the oldest styles of beer, and is usually sour and flavored with fruits.
The success of Brouwerij Lindemans in 1930 paused their agricultural activity, as focus was given more onto the brewing of Gueuze and Kriek. They eventually kept producing more types of lambic beer with great success, with the most recent one—apple, introduced in 2005.
Store beer bottles upright to prevent yeast rings from appearing. They must be kept in a cool, dark place at approximately 13°C. Don’t allow beer to be caught in bright light for long periods of time to prevent it from attaining a “skunky” taste.
