We’ve transformed an old school into a microbrewery

looking to bring the best Belgian style ales to Norfolk County.

Our Story

Were a family company making Belgian style ales. After his studies, Mischa came back to Norfolk County and started hobby brewing with his dad Jo. The beer was such a hit with friends and family that it just took off from there.

Having moved from Limburg in the Netherlands to Limburg in Belgium, they had come to appreciate the Belgian style beer. Inspired, they decided to try and recreate that beer culture in their business. New Limburg was born. With an emphasis on the Belgian style, they came out with their flagship beer, the Belgian Blond. From there a line of Belgian style beers came to be. The real ambition and point of pride is to make their own Trappist style beers. Trappist beers, traditionally brewed by monks in their abbeys, are some of the most highly regarded beers in the world. Though being the artists that they are they also experiment with different styles that result in some unique limited edition brews.

But its not just about the beer; its also about the culture around it. Bringing a little bit of the Belgian beer culture to Canada was the goal; to have people come to the tasting room and enjoy themselves. It shows that were making a positive contribution to the community. We also like to support other local businesses by providing other locally made products.  We take pride in supporting the community the way they are supporting us.

People are always surprised to see a place like this out in the country. To use an old school as a brewery is quite unique. Its nice to open an old school to the public so that people can come in and see it being used again. Want to experience it for yourself? Come visit us!

MEET THE TEAM

Mischa Geven

Co-Founder & Brewer

My interest in beer and the brewing process increased dramatically after taking up brewing as a hobby with Jo. Even after having developed a recipe for release I’m guilty of continually adjusting it in the hopes of getting it just a little bit better, never being fully satisfied with the result.

Jo Geven

Co-Founder

The atmosphere that has formed around the brewery, it’s normal for us. In Europe, you have these kinds of cafes everywhere; strangers talking to each other and enjoying themselves. After a hard days work, there is nothing more satisfying than to sit down with a nice cold beer and interact with people who are looking for the same experience. It’s become a piece of Limburg in Norfolk County.

Yvonne Moonen

Artist & Administration

Though I create the artwork for the bottles and work on the administrative side of things, I also enjoy the stories that I hear in a day. With this kind of work, you meet people you would otherwise not cross paths with. Everyone has a story to tell. Living and working in a school also add a fun dynamic.

Dave Harrison

Sales & Logistics

​I joined the team because of three main reasons; I needed a new challenge, I believe in the product, and I believe in the direction and philosophy of the company.  I now look forward to coming to work each and every day; and the challenges that it may bring.
