Brewery Description

Late last century, in 1897, bought a certain Arthur Van den Bossche is a plot of land on the beautiful square in Sint-Lievens-Esse. When he could not suspect that he would be the founder of a great brewing family. Arthur Van den Bossche was married to a daughter of the family from Callebaut Wieze. Now this family is primarily known for chocolate, they made earlier reputation as a brewer. The Callebaut family had indeed both a brewery and a chocolate and unlike what one would expect, the production of beer was more important than the manufacture of chocolate. Moreover, the beer, the chocolate could keep your head above water. Arthur wanted the example of his in-laws also start brewing. He left on his land so near a large mansion also build a brewery. So it was that more than 100 years ago for the first beer flowed from the brew kettles in Sint-Lievens-Esse.
