The phoenix has marked civilisations throughout the ages as a symbol of rebirth and serenity.
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 pheonix 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. The beer of the phoenix gives rise to unexpected flavours that reveal themselves with each sip.
