The van Steenberge Brewery

Like many others of its kind, this brewery originated from a plough land farm, which was also engaged in brewing beer for its own consumption. The first time this brewery was mentioned on paper was in 1784 under the name of Brouwerij De Peer. It is very likely, however, that there had been a brewery long before that time but that the farmer, John Baptist De Bruin, a native of the village St. Kruis Winkel, located not too far from the brewery, did not leave any written documents behind until that point in time.
