Leffe is a Belgian high-quality beer owned by the Anheuser-Busch company. There are various types of Leffe beers, and the alcohol percentage varies from 0.0 to 8.5, although the classic sort is blonde ale. This recipe has a rather long history, dating back to at least the 13th century.
Meaning and History
The original brewery was adjacent to the monastery that opened in the town of Leffe in the Middle Ages. By the 1200s, the monks started brewing ales here, although it’s not really the same type of beer they brew today. The modern Leffe beer only started production in 1952.
What is Leffe?
Leffe is a Belgian brewery known for producing a range of high-quality, abbey-style beers. With a rich brewing heritage dating back to the 13th century, Leffe is renowned for its craftsmanship, using traditional brewing methods to create flavorful and distinctive Belgian ales enjoyed worldwide.
1952 – today
Like many ancient beer recipes, the brand that uses it today wants to emphasize this legacy. As a result, the official logo features the word ‘Leffe’ written in a classic Gothic typestyle. The usual color is black, although it can obviously change for contrast. For instance, the fallback color is often yellow.
Emblem and Symbol
The other main symbol is a stained glass picture that depicts the Leffe monastery in vivid colors. This emblem in generally relays the fact that this beer brand is rather old and was brewed in the monastery for the long time. They usually put this one in the middle of the bottle’s label right above the name.
