Valkenburg has its own beer brewery. Walk through the Plenkertstraat and you will pass the brewery. Look inside and see this nice copper kettle. Leeuw Bier is brewed since 1886.

The brewery is not open for tours.

But you also enjoy their beer itself ofcourse.
They brew:
Valkenburgs Wit, Pilsener, Oud bruin, voorjaarsbok and najaarsbock.

All beer is brewed with water they get from 105 meters below ground. The water is filtered by the marlstone.

After 120 years of brewing beer in Valkenburg, the brewery closes in 2006. The beers will be brewn in Haacht, Belgium. And the historic building, once a gunpowder factory, will be sold. Wish we had the money to buy it.....
