About Grimbergen

The Grimbergen Manifesto

The phoenix has marked civilizations throughout the ages. Persians, Greeks, and Romans regarded it as a symbol of rebirth and serenity.

For centuries, its mystical powers inspired men who longed for freedom and sought to reinvent themselves. Founded in 1128, Grimbergen Abbey was destroyed in a terrible fire in 1142, then again in 1566 and 1798.

Every time it was destroyed, it was rebuilt. The monks of Grimbergen took the phoenix as their symbol, a sign of their abbey’s perpetual rebirth, and adopted a motto in its honour: Ardet nec consumitur, Burned but not destroyed.

Their recipe for beer has also withstood the test of time, making it a lively beverage with unmatched character. Authentic, unique, and complex with multiple aromas, the beer of the phoenix gives rise to unexpected flavours that reveal themselves with each sip.
