Just like other breweries in Belgium, the Cantillon Brewery in Anderlecht is being affected by global warming. Traditional brewing requires cool temperatures to produce lambic beer.
In the past, the brewing process took place from mid-October to mid-May. However, due to global warming over the past recent years, this time period is being reduced. The rise in temperatures has produced scorching hot springs.
As such, the lambic has to be brewed during the cool nights.
Cantillon, as well as other breweries in the Brussels Region, have not yet found an answer to how their production will continue to be affected in the short term.
