September 2012 - Our 30th birthday
It all started on our 30th birthday.
For some years my brother and I had been tasting and collecting all kinds of Belgian and foreign beers and had built up quite a collection.
Since we were so interested in learning about beer and also the creation of different kinds of beers our wives bought us a subscription for a homebrewing course at the Alvinne brewery.
Inspired by what we learned at the brewery course, we started gathering the necessary equipment for assembling our own brewery installation and started to experiment.
June 2014 - Brouwland Beer Competition
In June 2014 our 5th brew experiment got awarded with the price for Best Hobbybeer of The Low Countries at the Brouwland Beer Competition.
The price included 500L of our beer, brewed by brewery Anders, and also a distribution in Delhaize during 3 months.
Since this was the perfect launching pad to continue our hobby in a more professional manner we decided to found our own company.
