21 brewers, 165 beers
The association’s objective is to promote historic, independent family breweries which bring genuine added value to the identity and authenticity of Belgian brewing methods. This is a worthy cause, since beer brewing is a skilled craft which has been passed down from generation to generation in Belgian families over the centuries. Authentic Belgian beers therefore deserve to be recognised in a way which distinguishes them from other beers.
The Belgian Family Brewers label
With its label of authenticity, the association of Belgian Family Brewers wants to offer the consumer a guarantee of the origin and traditional production of authentic Belgian beers. Thanks to this label, that was launched on 8 November 2007, beer lovers all over the world will know that a beer carrying this logo:
• is a genuine Belgian beer brewed in Belgium on the brewery site recognized by BFB
• comes from an independent family brewery that has been making beer for at least 50 years, and is thus a traditional brewery
• is an original beer, no copies of which are sold under any other name or label.
