In 1986 the castle was bought by the Van Honsebrouck family. The family have been brewing Ingelmunster beer since 1900. On 17 September 2001 a fire broke out in the castle that completely destroyed the museum-brewery.

The brewery is owned and operated by the seventh generation of van Honsebrouck brewers in Ingelmunster. The current CEO is Xavier Van Honsebrouck, who took control in 2009.
