Once upon a time
Francisca Josina Vandersmissen was born in Hof ter Kwadewegen in Belgium's Pajottenland on a bed of hops and malt. The region’s noble beer lineage flowed freely through her veins. Years later, her sparkling appearance captivated Joos Frans Lindemans. In 1822, the young couple was wed and moved into the Vandersmissen farm brewery. Soon after, they started their family and began to brew lambic beer. Thus, Lindemans Brewery was born.
In celebration of
… our 200th anniversary, we honor the original ‘mother’ of our brewery by giving her name to our exclusive anniversary beer… introducing Oude Gueuze Anniversary Blend 2022 “Cuvée Francisca”.
Continuously growing and exploring
Lindemans Brewery continues to brew lambic, and so the ‘mother of all beers' still flows steadily through our beer taps in Vlezenbeek today. For 6 generations, our brewery has produced one of the world’s oldest beer styles with the greatest care and immense passion.Soon, we will begin brewing high fermentation beers at a new site in Ruisbroek. These exciting new beer styles, along with a continued focus on our traditional lambic varieties, will allow us to bring new flavor profiles and experiences to fans all over the world. We look forward to this new chapter of growth and innovation while remaining a family-owned, Belgian lambic brewery.
