Despite the fact that the name of the brewery Brewery Van Honsebrouck appeared in 1953, the roots of brewing family van Honzebruk were laid in the first half of the XIX century, when the farmer and the mayor of Werken van Honzebruk Amandus, born in 1811, founded the brewery. His son Emil after the death of his father first ran this brewery, and then moved to the city of his wife - Ingelmyunster (Flanders), where he acquired the brewery Sint-Jozef.
