Xavier Vanneste is the 5th generation of this brewing family, and the youngest member of the Vanneste family still working as a brewer.
His father, Tonny Vanneste, worked in the family’s brewery “’t Hamerken” (together with Paul), while his mother, Véronique Maes, worked in the family’s other brewery “De Halve Maan” from the Maes side of the family.

In 2005, Xavier Vanneste restarted his mother’s “De Halve Maan” brewery, with the launch of “Brugse Zot”.
In 2008, he also managed to reacquire the family’s old brand “Straffe Hendrik” and bring it back to the original “De Halve Maan” brewery.
In 2019, Xavier is bringing “Blanche de Bruges/Brugs Tarwebier” back to its roots in the family’s brewery in Bruges.
