Over the past two centuries, RODENBACH has earned its status as one of the most awarded breweries in the world, is recognized by Belgium as a National Treasure and is revered by those who know, love and appreciate sour beer all over the world.
RODENBACH ages its beers for a minimum of two years in standing oak casks (foeders), which are as iconic and legendary as the beers themselves. Each foeder is hand-made and maintained by the brewery’s Coopers (barrel makers), with some holding as much as 17,000 gallons of beer. With 294 foeders at the brewery in West Flanders, Belgium – RODENBACH has the largest collection of wood-aged beer in the world.
After living at the brewery while learning its heritage and how to brew its beers, Master Brewer Rudi Ghequire expertly crafts each award-winning RODENBACH sour beer to be unique and unforgettable. With a high acidity level, RODENBACH is delicious and refreshing on its own, or pairs exceptionally well with a variety of foods – from American favorites like barbecue and grilled meats to cheeses, seafood and spicy dishes from other cultures.
