About Brouwerij Bosteels
The brewery has been in the hands of the Bosteels family for over 200 years and seven generations. Their forefather, Evarist Bosteels, established the brewery in 1791. After that came Jozef, who had three sons: Frans - for thirteen years the Mayor of Buggenhout - Martinand Lodewijk, of whom the first two learned the brewer's trade. Leon Bosteels, Martin's son, later took over the helm, after which in 1938 Antoine Bosteels carried on the brewing dynasty as Leon's son.
