Of the 13 breweries located in the Ninove area in the 19th century, only Slaghmuylder has survived. At the end of the 19th century Ernest Slaghmuylder takes over the parental company. At the Denderhoutem road he buys the grounds of a run-down abbey and after World War I he starts building. In 1926 the new brewery produces its first low fermentation beer. From World War II to 1958 they brew only top fermentation beer as this requires less cooling energy. Then they switch over agina to lager which takes up 75% of total production. In 1980, they start brewing the Witkap beers in the former De Drie Linden (The Three Lime-trees) brewery at Brasschaat which they took over in 1981. In the existing brewery there are some archeological treasures like a Thiriau steam engine from 1906. This is reactivated during the yearly open houses. There's also an old drawing installation and a steam kettle from 1920. Guided visits are possible by appointment.
