The home brewery Domus in Leuven, Belgium

From the original wall painting by P. Vandenhende in 1982 can be traced the short history of beer Domus: In 1288, during the Hertog Jan I van Brabant, starts to make "Cambrinus". Later, began working the Brasserie Domus. During the 18th century, beer production is developing rapidly and Pepe Japo began to be considered "vader van het Belgisch bier". And paying tribute "aan onze Brouwers Susse Lambic" to Lomme Peeterman, whose name is associated with the beer Peeterman, remembered when it was created, with her brown color and penetrating fragrant bouquet and... unfortunately, is already lost one of the Belgian beer styles. And to an our time, when the brewery Domus is inherited the traditions in the brewing craft from past centuries.

If, however, you want to enjoy the great taste of one of the three types of beer Domus, you should visit Leuven in Belgium. Domus is not bottled and is not sold in the stores. Domus, there is only in one location in the world - Leuven, the beer capital of Flanders, not far from the capital Brussels. In the center of Leuven, in a picturesque and cozy complex of historic buildings are the tavern/inn Wentelsteen, tavern De Dijlemolens, pub, bar, terrace on the courtyard of the complex during the warm time of the year and ... Home brewery itself.

In Domus home brewery, modern but small-scale equipment is used to produce quality authentic beer.
