It all started when we were fifteen and couldn’t buy beer after rowing trainings. We decided to make our own because why not? It took a long eight years of studying, brewing, experimenting and working our asses off. And than we finally reached the point where we were happy with our brew and decided to open a proper brewery. Thus the Lobik Brewery was born. It took another two years of heavy debts and unpaid working hours until our hard work paid off. We were recognised as one of the best breweries in the region.
We are named after the silver carp, the very fat fish roaming the rivers and lakes of Europe. Its shape resembles the body of one our brewers after he quit rowing. With all the fat he gained the nickname Lobik came included. From the look of things the whole team will earn the nickname rather soon.
The goal of the brewery from the very beginning has remained the same. It means making the beers we like to drink. Admittedly it means they are a bit heavy on the alcohol and complex with its tastes. Consequentially it means we use the highest quality of ingredients. Anyway, enough about us. We just hope you like our beers and drink them with the joy we do!
