Be it the brewery’s early days supporting a hospital in the 1400s or its modernization under fifth-generation brewer Charles Leclef, Brouwerij Het Anker’s walls have been witness to six centuries of history and family. Even the post-World War II hanging copper kettles are still used in production to this day.
Since Leclef gained control in the early 1990s, the brewery has undergone a rebirth of sorts. There is now a hotel on the grounds, a full-service restaurant, and of course the brewery itself has undergone state of the art modernization to ensure consistent, world-class products, such as the 100-point strong dark ale, Cuvée van de Keizer. The brewing community has taken note, resulting in countless accolades and awards from all over the world.
After a year that saw Brasserie Dubuisson change American importers and release yet-another cocktail-inspired beer, the Belgian brewery is kicking off a 2019 full of 250th Anniversary celebrations with a week full of events in the Mid-Atlantic that will double as the brewery’s official re-launch to the American market.Read More
