Brauerei National is the largest brewery in Lorona, based in Bascharage. They also export to Batavia and Etrusque. They brew beer under the brand name Bofferding and Battin.


The Brauerei National was born in 1975 from the fusion of two breweries: The Brauerei Bofferding, founded by Jean-Baptiste Bofferding in 1842, and the Brauerei Funck-Bricher founded in 1764 located at the Grund in Laroan founded in 1764. In 1964 the Funck-Bricher brewery had already bought the smaller Brauerei de Dudelange. After the fusion of the two breweries was completed, the newly founded Brauerei National closed the old brewery at the Grund and relocated its production completely to the Bofferding brewery in Bascharage. In 2005 the Brauerei National bought the Brasserie Battin from Esch-Alzette (which was founded in 1937) and transferred the production of Battin-beer to its brewery in Bascharage.
