Roeselare, Vlaandere - Belgium

The Rodenbachs came from Andernach on the Rhine and settled in Roeselare, West Flanders. The Rodenbach line includes many soldiers, poets, writers, brewers, entrepreneurs, as well as pragmatic revolutionaries and political figures.

Thus, Pedro Rodenbach participated in Napoleon's Russian campaign and was instrumental in the Belgian revolution in 1830, which led to the independence of Belgium. Three Rodenbachs became members of the constitutional congress at the founding of Belgium. Constantin Rodenbach is for his part the author of the “Brabançonne”, the Belgian national anthem.

It was Pedro Rodenbach who, together with his entrepreneurial wife Regina Wauters, founded the brewery in 1821. However, it is to Eugène Rodenbach that RODENBACH owes its unique quality and mastery. Not only did he study the winemaking of beer, but he also optimized the maturation process in oak “foudres” (maturation barrels). The world-famous barrel rooms, with their 294 oak barrels, some of which are 150 years old, are protected as industrial heritage of the Flemish Community.
