More news, no ads


The Belgian Brewer is toasting awards success as it plans to expand its Bishop's Stortford premises.

Owner Nik Lemmens, who officially launched the business at Easter 2019, saw its Saison and Wheat beers win silver while Dubbel and Tripel claimed bronze at the London Beer Competition.

And he is looking to grow his brewery and tap room at The Links Business Centre, off Raynham Road, by expanding into the next-door unit in order to offer large-scale event hire. The plans also include a new bottling line and launching a host of new beer styles such as Royal Dubbel, Sour Cherry, Apricot Beer and a festive Christmas Quadrupel.

Nik plans to put out a fundraising appeal to loyal customers and beer lovers everywhere to help raise some of the cash for the growth spurt.

He is already set to make the brewery available for private hire once Covid-19 restrictions allow while it is open every weekend for customers to enjoy its vast selection of Belgian beers alongside a curry on Fridays and a barbecue on Saturdays.
