 The brewery is located in Genval, near Waterloo. It all began with the birth in 1886 of John Martin, the famous brewer. He, at the age of just 23 years, established his first company in Belgium. A brewery that will prevail through ales and imported Guinness in Belgium. In the 90s, Anthony Martin (son of John Morning) Launches Gordon Finest Gold, a blonde beer with a high alcohol content (10 °). These years were also marked by the arrival in the group of the Timmermans brewery and Burgundy Flanders. In a dark mahogany color, the Gordon Xmas is covered with an abundant, creamy lather but aerates quickly disappear without glass. It is crossed by an average effervescence. It has bitter flavors, lightly roasted and caramelized. On the palate, it develops rich flavors, sweet and caramelized contrasting strikingly with a long post and pronounced bitterness and a slightly roasted aftertaste.
