The brewery was founded in 2000 by Kristof De Roo, Rikkert Maertens, Stefaan Soetemans and Sven Suys, all brew-engineers, graduated from KaHo St. Lieven in Gent.
Like the real French Musketeers of the 18th century, the 4 friends bundled their enthusiasm and efforts, and created "the Musketeers brewing company".
|Troubadour Magma Special Edition Galaxy|
|Every year at the end of summer there is a one-time special brew of Troubadour Magma in which one aspect of the recipe is changed. Troubadour Magma is an amber colored beer with the bitterness of an American IPA but balanced with the fruitiness of a Belgian Triple and fruity aromas from the dry-hopping with SIMCOE hops.
This year, brewery The Musketeers went even further and found hops at the other side of the world, where very specific hops are grown in New Zeeland and Australia.
The brewers selected GALAXY, hops with a very intense fruity aroma, typical for this region. It gives an extra hop dimension to Troubadour Magma.
In the edition of 2011 American Cascade hop was used for 'dryhopping' and in the edition of 2012 Japanese Sorachi Ace hops.
