Averbode abbey beer

The Averbode abbey beer pays homage to history: from the 14th to the early 20th century the abbey was home to brewing activities. For the production of the ‘new’ abbey beer, the abbey opted for Brewery Huyghe, a brewery that also boasts a rich past. But there are other similarities as well because respect for the environment and society as a whole rank among the brewery’s core values.

For instance, thanks to the Mongozo beer, Brewery Huyghe is the only brewery in Belgium to market a beer that has earned both the fair trade, gluten-free and organic labels. The brewery also actively invests in a smaller ecological footprint and social employment.
