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. Sons Emile greatly expand the business, produce reorganization and modernization of the plant and focus on the production of bottom-fermenting beer (hips, lager and export lager). The representative of the next generation of the family - Luc Van Honzebruk trained and brewing practices in Wallonia and Germany, takes over management of the brewery in 1953 and renames it Brewery Van Honsebrouck. It creates an old Flemish brown beer "Bacchus", and in 1958 began producing lambics and then cry called "Saint-Louis".
