The roots of our brewery date back to May 1892. It was a time when every brewer brewed his own special beer. It was no different in Beollegem, a rural village in West Flanders within a stone's throw of the French border. In that same year, the first barrels of "Ouden Tripel", what is today called "Bellegems Bruin", rolled across the cobblestones and where renowned as far as French Flanders. The fact that the brewery has been continuously in family hands from is early start to the present has become a rarity.
This family grounding has always been the basis for the dynamic and creative enterprise that typifies the brewery. This is evidenced by the launch of Jacobins Gueuze in 1970, the Jacobins Kriek in 1983 and the Jacobins Framboise in 1986. Today, Bockor has grown into one of the most state-of-the-art breweries in Southwest Flanders. The brewery is in its region well-known for its ecxellent Bockor lage. It is nationally and even internationally famous for its specially beers: Jacobins Gueuze, Jacobins Kriek, Jacobins Framboise and Bellegems Bruin (red ale)
