Brouwerji van Honsebrouck have a long and storied history. Once the site of the Sint-Jozef Brewery, their current building dates back to 1793. The cellars were the only thing to survive when English, French and Spanish soldiers razed the village a century before, and the theme of rebirth is a fitting one.

The modern brewery came into being in the early 20th century, with the Van Honsebrouck family taking over brewing in the local style. The regional has only a few definitive styles, and Bacchus is one of them. The Flemish red-brown brew sits alongside oude gueuze and saison as a signature taste of the area.

The style relies on ancient storage methods and mixed fermentation to extend its lifespan, undergoing maturation in oak barrels which develop a mildly sour and fruity taste. By cutting young beer with old, Brouwerji van Honsebrouck find the perfect balance. And when a little fruit is introduced, as with Kreik or Framboos, then it can’t be beaten.
