Van Steenberge about
Van Steenberge is a familiar brewery from Ertvelde, in Belgium. It was founded in 1784 by Jean Baptiste De Bruin. The brewery takes the name of Paul Van Steenberge, married with Margriret Schelfault, 3rd generation descendant of Jean Baptiste. In 1978, they partnered with the Augustian friars of Ghent in order to produce their traditional blond ale, whose recipe dated back to 1295, called Augustijn, and later in the 80s they expanded their high fermentation lineup with beers like Piraat and Gulden Draak. Nowadays the brewery is still independant and under the management of Paul Van Steenberge, 7th generation brewer.
