1784 was the year when Jan Baptist De Bruyne laid the brewing foundations of Van Steenberge. There is no better tribute to the brewery’s founderthan our Baptist beers.
Jan Baptist’s brewing was an extension of his own agricultural operations. Back when cooling techniques were almost non-existent, beer brewing was a winter activity. By brewing his old brown, Jan Baptist unwittingly laid the foundations of the Van Steenberge brewery’s current extensive operations. Back in the day, the beer was distributed to the brewery’s own pubs, a practice that still lives on today.
Baptist is a flavorsome tributeto our founder and is brewed on the occasion of the opening of our own Bar Baptist. The result is an accessible craft beer with a full and rich flavor. Beers brewed with modern techniques and with respect for our rich history. A recipe that Jan Baptist would rightly be proud of!
