Since 1979, the village of Montignies-sur-Roc has been home to an authentic brewery. Back in the day, this was the first company to obtain an exemption to produce less than 10 000 hl of beer per year. On the other hand, there weren’t yet any specific production infrastructures and Jean-Pierre Eloir had to create the equipment necessary for the fabrication of his artisanal beer himself. He had to resort to second-hand materials like washing machines etc. That’s how the first micro-brewery was created in Belgium!

In 1991, Nathalie, Jean-Pierre Eloir’s daughter, took the reins of the company, followed by her companion, Georges Levecq, four years later. The company has flourished extremely well and today its production is distributed not just in Europe (Belgium, France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, etc.) but also in the United States and Asia!
