More about Leffe:
Leffe is still considered one of the few abbey beers in the world. Its history begins in 1240, when the monks of Notre Dame de Leffe began to brew beer to offer it to pilgrims passing by. Over the centuries, production increased and adapted to the times, but the spirit of Leffe has remained unchanged: still today, offering a Leffe – in its iconic glass – is a symbol of welcome!
