d'Oude Maalderij

Jef Pirens

Brewery D'Oude Maalderij was founded in 2011 in Koolskamp. At a place where grain was milled and mixed for decades, the first brews were created in a small brewing installation. Nights were spent like obscure alchemists working on new recipes. To this day, D'Oude Maalderij continues to sincerely and honestly practise the time-honoured tradition and masterful art of brewing. Only by using authentic products are new pure and pristine beers created step by step. In the autumn of 2012, brewery d'Oude maalderij proudly presented its first unique and fully finished beer; the Qantelaar. In September 2015, we proudly opened our own pub: 'Estaminet De Brouwerij' in Izegem In the spring of 2016, our own 10HL installation is put into use in Izegem. In 2017 and 2018, we were voted best brewpub in Belgium. On 1 May 2019, we switched over to eatery and started using our kitchen to serve traditional Flemish dishes. It is extremely important for D'Oude Maalderij to always take the stirring stick in hand when creating these brews, in order to safeguard the quality of the beer and to make sure that only high-quality ingredients are used and that all processes are carried out correctly. Dare to taste, learn to enjoy !
