According to a report from The Street, Anheuser-Busch InBev, itself a Belgian company, has purchased Belgian brewery Bosteels, maker of venerable Tripel Karmeliet, Kwak and DeuS beers. Bosteels was founded by Evarist Bosteels in 1791 and had been family-owned for seven generations. (Read more about its history here.)

The news of this latest acquisition follows AB InBev’s purchase of several American craft breweries including Breckenridge, Devils Backbone, Four Peaks and others. Anheuser-Busch InBev is also in the process of acquiring its largest rival, SABMiller, for a reported $105 billion.
