De Koperen Markies Groenstraat 14 - 1730 Asse +32 475 35 12 86



The brewery' De Koperen Markies' stands for a  range of pure and tasteful beers based on a rich pallet of barley malts and grains, several fragrant hop varieties, yeast, water and herbs. It is our aim to brew beers which are accessible to a large public, even non- beer drinkers!

We strive to incorporate as many regional products as possible such as hop from Asse, fruits and flowers.

Our beers are made without using any preservatives and they are not filtered nor pasteurized. Because of this they retain their fresh taste. We developed proper recipes for all our beers and they are all personally brewed on a small, artisanal scale.

At this moment we still hire brewing equipment from colleagues but it is our intention to start in the next phase with the foundation of our own brewery.

The brewer

Hugo Mertens, the brewer, studied chemistry, bio-chemistry, micro-biology, oenology and fermentation techniques.
He has been producing fruit wines and alcoholic drinks for many years in his spare time.
Initially it was his intention to start with the commercialisation of fruit wines but eventually, it was decided to step into the medical world.
Being specialised  in constructing and (re)structuring companies he worked for more than thirty years  for medical concerns.

It has always been his dream to return to his first passion later in life and to start with the production of alcoholic drinks.

That's why he studied at the 'Brewery school' in Ghent and followed the distillation course in Hasselt, the centre of the production of jenever in Belgium.


Our beers

“Pure and full-bodied local Brabant beers, brewed artisanally.”
