Bosteels Brewery stands in the small village of Buggenhout. Adjoining the spacious inner courtyard, the handsome and dignified buildings rise up from the ground: the former family residence and the old whitewashed towerbrewery. The listed brewhouse is built to the designs of the architect Minnaert (Minnaert Theatre, Ghent).
Currently the Brewery is being directed by Antoine Bosteels ( 7th generation).
Bosteels Brewery is primarily known for its 3 very special craft beers: Pauwel Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS Brut des Flandres..
Palm Belgian Craft Brewers holds a unique position in the beer landscape with its Belgian specialty beers of high and mixed fermentation. It is an original brewer of high-fermentation beers under the brand name Palm (Palm, Dobbel Palm, Palm Hop Select, Palm Royale, Palm N.A) and is clearly the market leader in the Benelux countries in the amber beers segment. Stemming from its passion for the Belgian beer patrimony, it acquired the Rodenbach brewery in 1998, known for its "Flemish Red-Brown" beers of mixed fermentation (Rodenbach, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Rodenbach Vintage, Rodenbach Caractère Rouge and Rodenbach Rosso) and its unique foeder rooms, where the beers mature in oak barrels for two years.
The acquisition of the De Gouden Boom brewery in Bruges in 2001 expanded the range of high-fermentation beers to the connoisseur beers segment with Brugge Tripel and the Steenbrugge abbey beers (Wit/Blanche - Dubbel Bruin - Blond - Abdijbock and Tripel).
Rooted in the passion for further innovation, the De Hoorn brewery was reinstalled in 2014 and four ingredient masters were hired. These masters specialise in using herbs, hops, fruit and wood in beer and they expand their historical and scientific knowledge and insight, applying these to the breweries' product development. The Cornet and Arthur's Legacy beers were launched from the De Hoorn brewery in 2014."
