We’ve transformed an old school into a microbrewery with a small restaurant. We’re looking to bring Belgian style ales and dishes to Norfolk County.
In summer our large back patio opens up in addition to our front patio. Recently, in 2023, we initiated the start of a food forest within the area that had trees planted by Long point conservation authorities about 10 years ago.

It began as a family company making Belgian style ales.
Initially it was hobby brewing, for father Jo and son Mischa. When the beer proved a hit with friends and family, 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 beers. Thus, inspired, it was decided to try and recreate that beer culture in their business. New Limburg was born. With an emphasis on Belgian styles, they came out with their flagship beer, the Belgian Blond. From there more beers came to be. Trappist style beers: Dubbel, Tripel and Quad were added to the lineup. Belgian IPA, Wit (wheat beer), Petit Blond (pale ale) followed, as well as a milk Stout called Black Sheep (as the “black sheep” of the family, since it is not a Belgian style beer).
Traditionally brewed by monks in their abbeys, the Trappist beers are some of the most highly regarded beers in the world.
Bringing a little bit of the Belgian beer culture to Canada was the goal. The success and recognition shown by prices that were won, shows that we’re making a positive contribution to the community.
At some point a kitchen became operational with Belgian, Dutch and Indonesian style dishes. Some are “slow foods”. This is best explained as; dishes that are prepared as fresh as possible. By avoiding the use of microwave ovens, longer then usual serving times for food items will be the norm in the small restaurant.
People are mostly surprised to see a place like this out in the country. Re-using an old school as a brewery with restaurant is quite a unique concept. Adding a food forest was the next logical step in our journey which will take quite some years to establish on the sandy soil.
As of February 2023 we introduced a cover charge for our small dining room which goes towards enhancement of your dining experience, including a small appetizer. It ensures the room’s occupation by diners as opposed to brewery visitors that like to come for drinks only. The space outside of the dining will be available for drinks and tastings with a menu including pizzas, fries and snacks.
Fashioned after the European beer cafes, we wanted to make a comfortable homey feel in our dine-in restaurant room. At the same time we loved the classroom with the blackboards and large windows. Set up with a bar we provide the full experience for enjoying our Belgian beers.
Call to reserve a table to dine with a cold beer and some “slow food” in our, contemporary casual, cozy dining room or get a tasting and snack in our corridor area of the brewery.
In addition we serve local and imported wine and cider

(Please also be advised, with dining, that some of our food is “slow food”. You best enjoy a drink or two and relax, as it might take up to an hour or longer for your meal to get served, all depending on type of order and number of orders at the time. We strive to prepare as fresh as we can and without the use of micro wave ovens).
