In the tenth century, the River Scheldt served as the border between the French and German empires, with Ename as an important strategic location. In 1063 a Benedictine abbey was founded there, and the first brewing activities date back to this time. The abbey became the beating heart of Ename and there was much activity in and around it until the 18th century. Sadly, the abbey was closed and dismantled during the French revolution, and all that remains of it now are the ruins...
Fortunately however, the beer did not disappear forever with the Abbey of Ename. Brouwerij Roman applies a passion for beer, craftsmanship and respect for the mediaeval Benedictine recipe to produce five genuine abbey beers, each with its own character.
