Leroy Breweries is a family-owned brewery with a history dating back to the 19th century. Namely, since 1629, when it was first mentioned in the documents of the archive that a brewery was located next to the local castle. A family lived in the castle, which received the right to be called "Count Vatu". However, fate was not favorable to them, as well as to their estate along with the brewery - during the French Revolution, both the castle and the brewery were burned down, and the noble family itself narrowly escaped the guillotine, fled to England. The brewery, however, was revived by a local farmer and named "The Golden Lion". Until the end of World War II, the brewery remained an ordinary local, albeit quite colorful establishment. Since the 1960s, the Van Ecke family's beer has become a popular commodity in bars and even restaurants in Belgium and Northern France. In 2017, the name of the brewery was changed to Leroy Breweries in honor of the Leroy family.
Today, the village of Watu, where the brewery is located, is well known in Europe for its three main summer events: the poetry festival, the open-air contemporary art exhibition and the Gregorian music festival. The most famous and best-selling beer of the Leroy Breweries is Poperings Hommel Ale. It is distinguished by a rather high bitterness, created through the use of a large amount of local hops.
