165 tonnes of ‘Gorsemkrieken‘ the local sour cherries will be sent to the Liefmans brewery this week. They will of course be used to produce 2 of the beers that Liefmans are well known for. Fruitesse and Kriek Brut.
Here are a few of the photos I made this weekend at the family run cherry orchard in Limburg. The Briffoz family have been exclusively supplying Liefmans with their delicate and lovingly grown fruit for 20 years. Maxime Briffoz was proud to show brewer Elfried Anckaert around the orchard. It goes without saying that Elfried brought some of his Kriek Brut to sample.
