In the 10th century, the river Scheldt acted as the border between the French and German empires, and Ename became a strategic point in this area. The Benedictine abbey was founded there in 1063, and from then on the first brewing activities began in the region. The abbey became the centre of Ename's vibrant life until the 18th century.

Fortunately, beer has not disappeared forever, along with Ename Abbey. With passion for beer, craftsmanship and respect for the medieval Benedictine recipe, Roman Brewery brews five authentic abbey beers, each with a unique character.
