About the brewery

The Referend is exclusively dedicated to the production of spontaneously fermented beers, as practiced by ancient cultures and ushered into modernity by the lambic brewers of Belgium’s Pajottenland. The cellar and blendery are located in Hopewell Township, NJ, home to The Sourlands.

These beers are:
100% spontaneously fermented
no yeast cultures are added at any point in the process
Fermented and matured in oak barrels
neutral oak imparts little flavor and allows the beer to breathe
Unfiltered, Unpasteurized, Unsweetened
to sustain the beer’s natural essence
Built for posterity
bottles are capable of decades of aging
Acidic and complex
(not basic.)
