Brouwerij Van Steenberge

Ertvelde, Belgium


The brewery’s history dates back to 1874. At the time, the “DE PEER” brewery was established in Ertvelde. Paul Van Steenberge changed the brewery’s name to Brouwerij Bios in 1919, after the eponymous beer that was produced there at the time. This BIOS beer was known as the “Flemish Burgundy”, a high-fermentation beer, brewed after the brewery’s own artisan recipe.

In 1978, the brewery acquired the recipe of the beer brewed by the Augustine Friars in their abbey in Ghent since 1295.

In 1978, the brewery acquired the recipe of the beer brewed by the Augustine Friars in their abbey in Ghent. The recipe was further developed in Ertvelde and was launched in 1982 under the name “Augustijn”. It was an immediate hit and today it continues to be the brewery’s best-selling beer. The brewery’s extensive range was completed with other high-fermentation beers, such as Piraat and Gulden Draak.

In 1990, the new computer-controlled brewing hall was built, as well as a computer-controlled keg filling line, a water purification installation, a new bottling line and a power installation converted to natural gas.

In 2009, the range was completed with Augustijn Dark. The launch of this new beer was an excellent excuse to restyle and update Augustijn Blond and Augustijn Grand Cru.
