Verhaeghe Vichte

Vichet, Vlaandere - Belgium

The Verhaeghe Vichte brewery is a small family brewery with a history dating back to 1885, founded as a brewery-malt house by Paul Verhaeghe.
While most Belgian breweries of that time sold in the immediate vicinity of the brewery, Verhaeghe was exported to the Brussels market.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Paul Verhaeghe responded to the Belgian government's call to economically resist the German occupation by stopping production: The refusal to brew resulted in the dismantling by the Germans.

After four years of inactivity, the brewery had lost all its customers in Brussels and faced the investment of completely new production equipment.
After the war, the brewery remained at the regional level and adapted to new market trends. The first brews of bottom fermentation beer date from this period.

The brewery has also focused on improving the quality of its existing beers. At present, the Verhaeghe brewery feels comforted in its previous choice: a little less, but better.
