Jan-Léonard Moortgat and his wife founded the Moortgat brewery farm in 1871. Jan-Léonard experimented by trial and error, and his top fermented beers were soon greatly appreciated in the brewery's home town. In 1900 business was booming and Jan-Léonard's two sons, Albert and Victor, joined the brewery. Albert became the brewer and Victor would deliver the beer to Brussels by horse and dray. During the First World War, Albert was inspired by the success of English ales and decided to create a special beer based on these ales. Albert travelled to England to source the specific strain of yeast he needed to brew his English ale inspired beer. To this day the yeast used by Moortgat brewery is still cultured from the very same strain used years ago.
