The brewery was constructed in 1629 but was burned down during the French Revolution. In 1820, the brewery was rebuilt by a local farmer under the typical Belgian slogan "Revolt all you want, but we still need beer here." The brewery was then named "In de Gouden Leeuw" (In the Golden Lion)
In 1862, the Family Van Eecke became the new owners of the brewery and started brewing top fermenting country ales. In 1962 the Leroy family, a well respected brewing family for 7 generations, inherited Brewery Van Eecke. In 2010 the brewery participated at "Monde Selection 2010" and received the gold medal for our Pilsner Sas Pils, a gold medal for our Abbey beer Kapittel Blond and a silver medal for Poperings Hommelbier.
