For nearly six centuries, Aywiers Abbey in Couture-St-Germain was home to Cistercian nuns and a brewery. In 2017, this magical and bucolic place inspired two brothers to create a daring and hoppy project...

Brasserie Lutgarde is a historic, family-run brewery. It was in May 2017 that Augustin and Victor, two brothers with a passion for beer, decided to create Lutgarde, the floral beer of Aywiers Abbey. This abbey has already been home to a brewery for more than 600 years for trade but also for the personal consumption of the nuns who lived there.

To retrace the history, this beer owes its name and logo to Saint Lutgarde, a mystical saint who dedicated her life to Christ and decided to join the Abbey of Aywiers in the 13th century to live the rest of her life in silence and prayer.  Despite this vow of silence, this did not prevent him from tasting beers brewed by himself...

It is in this place steeped in history that the two brothers revisit beer in a modern and original way. Today, Brasserie Lutgarde has decided to put sustainability and local at the heart of their project while preserving the values of yesteryear: family tradition and authenticity.

Bursting with new ideas, the new generation brings a new breath of fresh air to the brewery. In 2020, these two passionate entrepreneurs looked further ahead and founded their own beer bar "Chez Lutgarde" located a stone's throw from Place Sainte-Catherine in Brussels. In addition to their bold beers, they offer the best of the micro-breweries of the flat country, as well as a selection of wines and local products to taste!

As a young and dynamic brewery in full expansion, Brasserie Lutgarde is looking for new talents in order to spread the secret of their beers. So, are you ready to contribute?

Joining La Brasserie Lutgarde means joining a young and relaxed team with an ambitious project. For the Brewery, moments shared as a team are a tradition: they love to get together for a glass (of beer of course), take zythology lessons, organize barbecues, brewery visits and sports challenges!

Fun fact: This year, the Lutgarde Brewery organised the world's largest beer hunt in the abbey for the second time. In total, nearly 5000 Lutgarde were hidden in every nook and cranny of the abbey. A hunt for adults, but not only! Children were also invited to hunt for chocolate eggs and fruit drinks. Something to satisfy young and old alike.

By joining La Brasserie Lutgarde, you will be able to participate in a family brewing project in full development and carry out a wide variety of missions. Their promise: no time to get bored, no two days will be the same!

Our commitments to sustainable world

Image présentant l'impact n°0

Brasserie Lutgarde is a sustainable brewery in full development. Within the team, they make it a point of honour to trade and local products. Indeed, the two brothers favour short circuits and above all want to be present on the Belgian market.

The brewery is never short of ideas and concocts its beers from local ingredients: beer made from honey from the abbey's beehive, flowers, or even thanks to the sap of their birch trees... They also offer organic beers made for the bar in Brussels. Eventually, their plan is to open a brewery offering environmentally friendly beers, with malt and hops coming directly from the fields around the brewery.

Small actions make big changes ! Among their various ecological commitments, their brewery is equipped with solar panels, their beers are consigned to crates, the brewery's spent grain is recovered to feed the livestock, and their products are only exported to Europe.

Brasserie Lutgarde doesn't stop there! Indeed, since their creation in 2017, they have been committed to supporting social projects every year, including Wapa (war affected people's association), an association that fights against the instrumentalization of children in armed conflicts and for the reintegration of war victims.
