Tumble-down

In 1770 James Liefmans started a brewery in Oudenaarde. Since 1990, the entire company was owned by the brewery “Riva” at Dentergem , but the name and the beers were maintained. There were more than 15 different beers.

In December 2007 Riva brewery eventually went bankrupt after a long legal struggle. The brewery group Duvel Moortgat, from the famous beer Duvel, took over the management, the buildings and on the recipe. Meanwhile, there are again some Riva and Liefmans Beers brewed at the site in Oudenaarde.

Now the buildings are owned by a contractor who has big plans with them: Build houses, but also space for industrial zones.

“Riva”, former brewery in Dentergem [en.wikipedia.org].

Former taste chamber,
now there is nothing more to degust,
not even for my ghost.
;-(

I strongly discourage drinking this …
first: Date has been exceeded.
second: It is no beer!!

This is a fantastic post! You've captured the ruins in such a way that we can easily see what it must have been like in it's glory. :)
