The Lindemans Brewery won two prizes during the Brussels Beer Challenge 2019, a prestigious international beer competition. Lindemans Old Kriek Cuvée René won in the category "Flavored beer: old style Fruit-Lambic" and Lindemans Old Gueuze Cuvée René won as "Specialty beer: Old style Gueuze-Lambic".
“We are very happy with this recognition for our traditional Old Gueuze and Old Kriek. Lindemans Old Kriek Cuvée René was awarded a gold medal earlier this year at the World Beer Awards 2019. Lambic is the basis of all our beers. We believe that focusing on tradition is the key to our succes": cousins Dirk Lindemans and Geert Lindemans, the 6th generation at the helm of the brewery.
This year, 1650 beers from 35 countries participated in this annual beer competition. During 3 days, a panel of internationally renowned beer connoisseurs tasted beers from all over the world. The participating beers were subdivided according to origin, type of beer and style. The best beers in each category were announced during 'Horeca Expo', the biggest Belgian professional fair for the catering industry at Flanders Expo in Ghent.
