MonnikbosbierHof te Kattem

Hof te Kattem is undoubtedly a very big farm in Pajottenland. Owned by the Van Wilderode family, it is situated in Borchtlombeek in the Monnikbostraat. Luc Van Liedekerke researched the origins of this agricultural business and made the link with the old Ninove abbey.

He wrote down his research in the book: Negen eeuwen Hof te Kattem. - Alleen God en zon. (Nine centuries of Hof te Kattem - Only God and the sun.) (The book can still be ordered at the Following number: 054 26 00 37.).

On the occasion of the presentation of this publication, the Sako brewery has brewed a delicious beer with the appropriate name of "Monnikbosbier".

CURIOUS TO DISCOVER HOW WE GIVE OUR BEERS THEIR TASTE?

Anyone who wants to see how our brewery works and how we give our beers their taste and character, is invited to visit us in Bogaarden.

Our brewery

A few years ago, the former stables of the farm and the annexed tavern were converted into a brewery.

The walls and the floor were finished with blue stone provided by the firm Stone-living.

The stainless-steel tanks were purchased in the Netherlands. The boiling tank with a capacity of 250 liters is heated with gas.

We use 250 and 200 liter filtration and fermentation tanks for the brewing process. Our special beers are aging in oak barrels.

We are currently looking for traditional tanks with a larger capacity.

WELCOME TO OUR TASTING ROOM

The old henhouses have been transformed from their original structure and form into a pleasant tasting area. That's the place where visitors have the opportunity to taste the craft beers brewed and bottled by Sako.

The elegant counter bar of the former tavern beautifies the tasting area. The original beer pumps work as they used to do: without addition of CO².

Thanks to the Nieuwborg - Plasschaert family, the former owners, this beautiful piece of furniture gets a second life.
