In September 2006, the brewery was bought by the brewery group Duvel Moortgat.HistoryIn the late 1970s, the two brothers-in-law, Pierre Gobron and Chris Bauweraerts, decided to create their own beer, in their own brewery.

  • Love this beer! Basic tour but the price and tasting make it well worth it!
  • Best beer world. Best trip in my whole life. You must go here.
  • I like the tasting of the different beers and the explanation of how beer is made. The tasting part was very much rushed and we were asked to leave. You don't get to see the brewing process, only a guide pointing at a kettle and a video sadly.
  • Fun tour and nice tasting. You can try 3 different beers, you get a mini tasting glass as a present and a small ticket for another taster at some of the bars in the neighborhood.
  • A very nice visit in the brewery that ends with a 2 beers tasting and gift small glass. Same day registration starts at 9am, too early for the 2pm tour, especially when there was nothing to do around.
