We’ve transformed an old school into a microbrewery with bistro style restaurant,
looking to bring the best Belgian style ales to Norfolk County
Follow us on instagram and facebook
It began as a family company making Belgian style ales. Initially it was hobby brewing, father Jo and son Mischa. The beer proved such 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 beer. Inspired, it was decided to try and recreate that beer culture in their business. New Limburg was born. With an emphasis on Belgian style, they came out with their flagship beer, the Belgian Blond. From there a line of more of these style beers came to be. The ambition and point of pride, especially for Mischa, was 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. They also experimented with different styles that resulted in some unique limited edition brews. Taking us six years ahead now, in 2021, Mischa with his partner Estelle van Kleef, have started Meuse Brewing, a new micro brewery, intending to add even more of the Belgian Style varieties in Meuse’s line up.
At New Limburg, bringing a little bit of the Belgian beer culture to Canada was the goal; to have people come to the tasting room and enjoy them. There is no Wifi and there are no screens with news or sports. When visiting you are encouraged to enjoy the ambiance of an old fashioned bar/bistro in a former classroom setting or on one of the patios (in season). Snacks and foods were slowly introduced to a point that a kitchen became operational with “slow food”. A second kitchen with an imported Italian Pizza Stone Oven is now producing house made beer-dough gourmet pizzas that are becoming famous in the area. Indonesian inspired dishes like Nasi and Bami are on the menu as they were favorites in Limburg and Belgium as part of the food culture introduced from Indonesia, a former colony of The Netherlands. The “slow” part is best explained as; dishes that are prepared by avoiding the use of microwave ovens, resulting in longer then usual serving time for food items. The success so far proved a positive contribution to the community. People are mostly surprised to see a place like this out in the country. Re-using an old school as a brewery with bistro restaurant is quite a unique concept. Want to experience it for yourself? Come visit !
Fashioned after the European beer cafes, we wanted to make a comfortable homey feel in our tasting room / bistro restaurant. At the same time we loved the classroom with the blackboards and large windows. Set up like a bar we provide the full experience for enjoying our Belgian beers.
Stop by today for a nice cold beer and some snacks, “slow food” and/or gourmet pizza in our cozy atmosphere.
In addition we serve local and imported wine and cider
