Witbier by Brasserie Vrooden in Québec, Canada

About Witbier by Brasserie Vrooden

The origin of the Witbier dates back to the 14th century in the region of Leuven in Belgium. The farmers of that time brewed this beer with raw wheat and oats and malted barley. In the 19th century, the city of Leuven was the brewing center of the Witbier in Belgium until the First World War when it ceased to be brewed. The shortage of wheat and the arrival of the blonde lagers were its demise. We had to wait until 1966 to see its return, when Pierre Celis brewed his first brew of Oud Hoegaards in his hometown of Hoegaarden.


We brew genuine German beers, by the methods and ingredients used, without compromising on taste and quality!
