Brouwerij Sterkens

Meer, Belgium


Fourteen generations of the Sterkens family have been brewing top-fermented beers in the village of Meer in the North of Belgium since 1651.

Until 1990, our brewery mainly distributed its beers to over 500 restaurants and pubs in Belgium. In the past 15 years, however, the brewery has increasingly shifted its focus to the export market and at present, some 95% of production is sold abroad.
