Rarely written down, beer recipes are normally handed over from brother to brother. But after World War II, Father Tobias decides to pass his Formula Antiqua Renovata on to an independent brewer.
Thanks to Father Tobias’ decision, Affligem’s brewing traditions live on. A range of beautiful beers, steeped in history, can be enjoyed to this day.
At Affligem, we still work together with a group of monks, ensuring the abbey’s 1000-year history continues. We also represent the monks’ story in our logo. Depicting the sword of Saint Paul and the cross keys of Saint Peter, the logo symbolises Affligem’s knightly and monastic traditions.
From the brewing process to the bottle you hold in your hands, Affligem is steeped in history.
