Eugène De Ro, grandfather of current Haacht Brewery CEO Frédéric van der Kelen, started working for ‘Melkerij van Haecht’ in 1897. Mr. De Ro, a fermentation engineer, is the founder of the modern Haacht Brewery.
In 1990, Haacht Brewery started the complete replacement of its production apparatus. Approximately 25 years later, the modernization process is completed with the construction of a new syrup plant.
Today, Haacht Brewery is a state-of-the-art brewery, inspired by its history and at the same time more than ready for the future.
