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,[1] and produces soft drinks for Schweppes under license. It is the oldest Guinness distributor in the world.[citation needed]

In 1993 the company bought Timmermans Brewery, a lambic beer brewery from Itterbeek founded in 1781.[2]

In 2014, the company opened the new Brasserie de Waterloo at Mont Saint Jean, and will open the Bourgogne des Flandres brewery in Brugge in June 2015.
