History of Affligem beer

Affligem is a brand of beer that has been part of the Alken-Maes group since 2010 (currently owned by the Dutch group Heineken). The name, as mentioned above, comes from the abbey of Affligem. This town is located in the province of Flemish Brabant, about twenty kilometres from Brussels. Affligem brand beers were never brewed in the original abbey, as that was destroyed. Because of this, the monks granted a licence to the De Smedt brewery, which became the current Affligem brewery located in Opwijk in the province of Flemish Brabant.
