Beer Family - April 2021 - De Dolle Brouwers
The brewery dates back to 1835 when brewing was not a main profession but something that people did on the side. The village had only 2,000 inhabitants but there were six breweries and two distilleries! Doctor Louis Nevejan founded the brewery, and later the distillery.
In the 1980s, Kris Herteleer, his brother Jo, and a friend, Roméo, took over the brewery and De Dolle was born. Fun fact - the name De Dolle Brouwers comes from a bicycle club 'De Dolle Dravers' (The Mad Trotters)!
