Wit beer can be tracked back to being brewed in the middleages in the village of Hoegaarden in Belgium. There have been many breweries, fires, closures etc and the the brand have been bought and sold numerous times between large breweries in new times. The man behind Celis White brewed in Texas, America was also the owner of Hoegaarden before he sold it and moved to America.
