Sint-Joris malting tower
The malt tower was built in 1913, during a thorough modernization of the brewery. The brewery-malt house survived the First World War, but the brewer's house was destroyed by a bomb. That was built new in 1922.
The brewery was active until 1963. In 1998, a group of volunteers founded De Fietseling vzw with the aim of restoring the former brewery site and giving it a new future. During the preparation of the restoration, the malt tower collapsed in 2001. In 2015, the restoration of the malt house with the malt tower started, which was completed in 2020.
From the malt tower you get a magnificent view of the village of Reningelst, the valley of the Grote Beek and the West Flemish ridge.
The tower is accessible daily during the week from 10 am-6 pm. During the weekend from 2 pm to 6 pm.
The tower remains closed in rainy weather.
