John Martin is the name of a beer brewery in Genval (Walloon Brabant), Belgium, founded in 1909 by English businessman John Martin (1886-1966). A family company, it is currently run by his grandson, Anthony Martin. Besides brewing Belgian-style ales, the company also imports British and Irish beers, and produces soft drinks for Schweppes under license. It is the oldest Guinness distributor in the world.

A Family Tradition

One hundred years ago, settling in Belgium in 1909, the famous British master brewer John Martin said : «only connoisseurs can appreciate beers like mine».

For a century now, three generations of “The Finest Drinks Company” have offered a fabulous voyage into the world of truly amazing drinks. Today, every second, day and night, two of our finest beers are savoured by lovers of finest Ales somewhere in the world !

Thanks to a unique blend of English tradition, Belgian savoir-faire and a hint of daring, our special beers are treasures that we just want you to discover !
