The story of Bryggja Brewery begins in 2012. Four friends decide to take part in the beercompetition organized by Brouwland with their tasty tripel. From a selection of over 90 beers, the Bryggja Triple is elected by a professional jury as the best hobby beer of Belgium. This victory convinces us, as hobbybrewers, to continue brewing.
Shortly after the final we choose a name, bottle and appropriate label design for our beer. Bryggja is launched during the Bruges beer festival in 2013. A year later, the second beer ‘Amuse’ is released.
Both beers are initially brewed in another brewery but at the end of 2014 we finally decide to start our own brewery. A suitable property in Moerkerke is found and makes the decision final. In the spring of 2015 the brewing equipment is placed there.
Three years after starting our own brewery, we now brew weekly (for ourselves and others). Our beers are popular both nationally and internationally. In our own beers we only use Belgian hops. For that reason, our beers carry the official logo 'Belgion Hop' on their labels. In addition, we don’t use extracts, taste amplifiers or foam amplifiers. Everything is natural. For us, quality is a priority and you can taste that.
In the past years, our range of beers has extended. Take a look at ‘our beers’ for the various delicious beers that we are brewing.
