Life in the brewery
Brewing beer is a centuries-old tradition at the site of the Appelhoek in Melle. The earliest evidence of brewing activity in this location dates back as far as 1654. In 1904 Léon Huyghe starts working at the local brewery.
In 1925 Léon Huyghe is joined at the brewery by his son Albert and son-in-law Louis Droesbeque and the brewery is officially renamed Brewery L. Huyghe. Today, Alain De Laet, the fourth Huyghe generation, stirs the brew kettles. The little elephant that was born in 1989 has grown into an international icon.
