Brewery De Halve Maan is a member of the association of Belgian Family Brewers. This non-profit organisation currently has 22 members and seeks to promote the historic and independent family breweries which offer a clear added value to the authenticity and identity of beer brewing in Belgium. This is a noble goal, as brewing is a craft that has been practiced by Belgian families for mayn centures and is often passed down from one generation to the next. For this reason, the authentic Belgian beers azre recongized with a label that sets them apart from the other beers. With this label the Belgian Family Brewers are able to provide certainty to the consumers about the origin and production of the beers that are a member. The introduction of the label takes away all doubt about the Begian heritage and craftmanship involved in the production of the beer.

The BFB logo guarantees that the beer: 
  • is brewed in Belgium
  • is brewed by an independant family brewery that has been brewing beer for 50 years or by a minimum of three generations uninterruptedly, in other words the beer is brewed by a traditional brewery
  • is unique and has not been copied under another name or another label

Finally, the association of Belgian Family Brewers wants to bring an end to the misuse abroad of the name 'Belgian beer'. Many beers brewed outside Belgium are marketed with what is supposed to be a Belgian qualtiy label. From now on, the official BFB label should ensure that this type of misuse, and the confusion it causes to consumers, will be a thing of the past. In this way the Association of Belgian Family Brewers wishes to make its own contribution toward the international reputation of traditionally brewed Belgian beers.
