Being homebrewers for years we decided to participate in a national homebrew competition named “Brouwland Biercompetitie” who took place in April 2011. We participated with our strongest beer which is our Préaris Quadrupel (10%ABV), our version of a trappist beer. Judges were brewmasters from Brewery Dubuisson and Orval. We were crowned best craft beer (home brewed) Belgium 2011. Soon after we decided we want to sell our beers to beer lovers all over the world. Since we only have our 80L homebrew system we had to find a brewery where we could brew our beer in bigger volumes. After we visited some breweries we choose ‘Proef’Brewery to let our beer brew under license. This fully automated brewery is specifically equipped for producing beers for third parties.
We started commercially in September 2011. 3 years later our beers are available in Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Bulgaria, Norway, USA, China and Thailand.
In 2013 the internationally renowned beer website ratebeer.com rated us best new brewer Belgium.
